On-board since 2017, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with the great team at one of Chicago's most delightful breweries—contributing art for a handful of one-off labels while owning several of their ongoing series: Neon, neonette, Deluxe, and Arrow of Time. Studio photos courtesy of Hopewell Brewing, via Jack Li.
With NEON being the brewery's largest and brightest series of brews to date, the label always had to be a special one—something completely out of category. Working closely with the team, I learned their labeling machine could go as small as 3/4" in height, this seemed like the perfect way to let these Pét-Nat beauties speak for themselves. Neon, neonette labels and glassware ongoing since early 2019.

Arrow of Time (Wild ale, 2020), the first of a "once in a while" series of Oak aged Wild Ales. Abstract type, more to come.

Fair Point (Belgian-Style Ale, 2019), "you know what, that's a fair point" is what you might hear in a debate about art, so I kept the label blank to let people color it in themselves and have a debate about art. Please color responsibly.

Electric Jewel (Wild Ale w/ paw-paw, 2019), matte paper with glossy spot varnish jewels + jewel exploration

Stonethrow (Wild Ale w/ peach, 2018), three year anniversary label and fruit stickers (applied by hand) + exploration + glassware
