Hawaii is truly one of my “happy places”. The warm breezes, fragrant plumeria flowers, and tropical vibe – what’s not to love? A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to go back to Oahu with my husband to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Yay us!
Even before the trip, I found myself drawn to a Hawaiian inspired label. Maybe the idea came from simply packing for the trip. Sometimes I’m mystified by the origins of inspiration. Before I reveal too much of my label images, here is the basic framework of what I’ve come up with:
- Label type: Beer bottle
- Company name: Grass Skirt Brewing Company
- Product name: Volcano Pale Ale
- Special printing effect: Die cut label with “interactive” feature
I’ve already shown Steve my initial label concept, so for now I’m keeping the rest a secret!
