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!

Like what you see then, fancy a chat?

Testimonials

BAAM has worked with Dean for the last 2 years. He helped us set up a website for BAAMfest 2015 and it was a great experience. After the festival Dean was more than kind to help us revamp the website and personalise it. After initial brainstorming he successfully translated our sketchy ideas into a vibrant website. He has always made time to accommodate our requests and assist with hiccups. He is very easy to communicate with and is fast responsive. I particularly like his work cause he has a strong understanding of how to illustrate and communicate ideas through design. Last but not least Dean has worked voluntarily with us all this time, which speaks volumes for his ethos and character.
