Fierce Whiskers Distillery – Design

Fierce Whiskers is a new entrant to the whiskey market from Austin, Texas. To get their brand off the ground, they turned to The Butler Bros, an agency that specialises in naming, narrative and visual design. The good news: The Butler Bros did an incredible job. Through smart, insightful design they were able to create a brand that is at once premium, authentic and trustworthy. It has all of the design cues one might want from a whiskey, giving it a sense of heritage, but it also stays entirely on trend with current liquor design.

3rd Year Publication Brief

There’s nothing we love more than sharing the incredible work our students produce and this is one of those times when we get to do so.

The following images and designs were produced by our 3rd year Graphic Design students for their first brief of 2018. You can read more about the project directly from the lecturers below:

The first brief for the 3rd year Graphic Design students looked at Impact design, which is based on the impact that values and behaviours of human kind would have and has had on environments, society itself and economies. The students had to write their own stories deduced from a current issue but interpreted into fiction. This project therefore required that the students create a set of books, which was written, illustrated, hand bound and packaged by them reflecting life on planet Earth in the year 2018. The full exhibition can be viewed during OPEN DAY on the 3rd of March 2018.

If you’re interested in seeing this work at our open day, check out this post here for details.

 

YouTube Rewind 2017 Website

Wow! What a great piece of multimedia design by Hook. This website, which was designed for YouTube Rewind 2017 (A kind of highlight video of all of YouTube’s best content for the year) has a great navigation design, which explains all of the memes, content and ridiculousness that made the year what it was.

You can check it out here.

Full marks if you get all the references!

Birds of Tokyo – Ryo Takemasa

We love this! Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa collaborated with the Tawarasha Design Studio to create this beautifully illustrated Bird Handbook, highlighting some of the common birds that can be found in and around Tokyo.

Sadly they were never actually for sale and were handed out at a Tokyo Midtown event, so to all the people who have a copy, consider us very jealous!
