311 Pittsburgh, PA Poster

311 Pittsburgh, PA Poster by DKNG

311 is touring in support of their new album Voyager, and we were thrilled to create a poster for their stop in Pittsburgh, PA. We decided to pay tribute to the city’s famous french fry and slaw filled sandwich with a 311 twist toasted into the bread.

The 311 Pittsburgh poster is an 18” x 24” four color screen print on 100 lb French Kraft-Tone Manilla Yellow paper, with a separate variant edition on 10pt rainbow foil. We produced four separate color variations in total, with two exclusive to the DKNG store. Check out our initial concept sketch below along with close up photos of the finished prints, and a time-lapse video documenting our process of designing the poster. The 311 posters will be available Monday, July 15th, at 9am PST in the DKNG store. Very limited quantities available.

Almanac Beer Co. Basecamp Imperial Pilsner

Basecamp Imperial Pilsner is Almanac’s latest fresh beer release, and is the first Almanac can to be included in the Lazy Dog Beer Club. Each quarter Lazy Dog Restaurants release a themed pack of limited edition beers. We were tapped to create a label design for their Bushcraft themed set, taking the subject of the outdoors and camping as the inspiration for the design.

Sunshine & Opportunity

Sunshine & Opportunity is one of Almanac’s most popular barrel aged sours, now making an appearance in a can for the first time. The name is inspired by the California gold rush, so we wanted the can to be extra sparkly but more importantly, to feel like the sun was shining directly on the can, complete with casting shadows. Incorporating a spectrum of color also helped give it a fun bright sunshiny look. Amazing photography provided by Almanac Beer Co.

Almanac Beer Co. True Kölsch

The latest addition to Almanac’s core line of year round beers is True Kölsch. As a classic beer style, we wanted this label to take on a timeless, understated appeal. We found that the combination of white, gold, and navy leant the packaging that classic bright and minimal feel of beers of the past. Check out True Kölsch wherever Almanac beers are sold. Photography by Almanac Beer Co.

Creative Works Skill Camp

A few years ago we had the pleasure of spending a few days in Memphis for the Creative Works conference, so we were excited to be invited back for their first ever Skill Camp, to lead a two-day immersive workshop covering our entire poster design and illustration process. It was a bit daunting to plan for a longer format session, but it was a fun challenge and even more fun to see the participants’ projects come to life over the course of the two days. We were blown away by the work that came out of the workshop and are thrilled to share some of the projects that were created here on the blog. Thanks to Josh and all of our students for making this a truly unforgettable and incredibly rewarding trip!

Almanac Beer Co. Fruit Cobbler

The much anticipated followup to our original Nectarine Cobbler beer label, for Almanac’s Fruit Cobbler, a whole bunch of larger than life blueberries joined the fun, and we also added new metallic elements to the label giving it some extra shimmer. With much of our packaging work sticking to aluminum cans, it was fun to revisit one of our favorite bottle shapes for this barrel aged sour.
