Porthbud Beer Can Designs for Bude Brewery, Cornwall

Adam at Bude Brewery in Cornwall, approached me to produce a unique graphic for a new beer product – Porthbhud. Below are the project’s specifics.

  • The design must target the 25 years+ age group.
  • The designs should convey a sense of fun whilst also incorporating a modern touch.
  • The labels must include all legal requirements
  • The labeld must include Barrel Rock within the design

As soon as I was given this brief I went to Barrel Rock with a camera and took some photos. Using these photos, I started drawing Barrel Rock and the surrounding features. However, I soon felt the design was lacking something, so I started sketching an octopus as I could visualise wrapping the creatures legs around Barrel Rock which would fit the brief perfectly.

After that, the look came together really quickly and the end result put a huge smile on the faces of the guys at Bude Brewery. I can’t express how much fun this design was to put together!

Testimonials

We were looking at off the shelf products for an online booking system for our carriage rides business, none of these really met our needs. We were introduced to Dean who not only designed a completely bespoke booking system for us, he completely redesigned our website to accommodate this. Dean has also followed up with advice and help on our social media channels all of which are now starting to improve business. I would certainly recommend him in the future.
