Craft Beer Design

The ever-growing world of craft beer and brewing is wonderful for many reasons. Not only is there a myriad of tasty beers out there, but there is also a great pairing of art, illustration and design to match. For those that love great beer and design, it’s almost a match made in heaven.

Currently, the main website is a blog with studies and write-ups of graphic design work created from artists all over the world.

Craft Brew Creative was created by Ryan Wheaton, a craft beer fanatic and graphic designer with over 13 years experience in the field. You can check out his design work here!

Craft Beer VS Design

 

Brewing:

Research – what are the great beers out there? what beers do you love and would want to create yourself? What beers would your audience like?

Development – Start brewing and creating recipes. Continuous process of creating, tasting and refining your BREW.

Feedback – What do others think of your craft beer? Would it be a hit with your beer crowd?

Refinement – Based on the feedback from your tasting sessions, fine tune your recipe to get it just right.

Implement – This is it! All of the research, testing and tasting recipes and refining your hit beer is done. It’s time to deliver this beer to the masses.

Design:

Research – what are other breweries doing with their image? what design systems do you love? What design systems are successful?

Development – Start creating sketches and mock-ups. Continuous process of creating, testing and refining your DESIGN.

Feedback – What do others think of your design system? Would it be a hit with your beer crowd?

Refinement – Based on the feedback from your design system, fine tune your design to get it just right.

Implement – We’ve got it! All of the research, testing and refining your design system is done. It’s time to deliver this new identity to the masses.
