One of my very favourite new blogs is the suitably named Oh Beautiful Beer, a collection of thoughtful and good-looking beer bottles, posters, glassware, logos and other beer-related design. It’s a celebration of slick illustration, glassware and branding innovation.
Although small South African breweries have often neglected the importance of considered and consistent design with their identities and advertising – added to the difficulty of sourcing specialist materials and packaging – I was pleasantly surprised to see Triggerfish’s handsome bottle for Ocean Potion featured on the site. Good on ya, Trigs.
In any case, I’d bookmark it. It’s a daily dose of beer and design porn of the highest standard.
