Product and apparel design for local brewery in DTLA.
Mumford Brewing is a Los Angeles-based craft brewery that makes all kinds of delicious artisanal brews from black ales and Belgian styles to Imperial stouts and Triple IPAs. The Mumford brand has a fun California vibe that’s laidback, unique, yet experimental. Inspired by references rooted in West Coast Americana, Mumford products are grounded yet forward-thinking, standouts in an exploding beer renaissance in LA.
I find designing packaging for Mumford to be a creative endeavor where the designer is free to be playful and innovative. Unlike the old timer beer brands with their stale and never-changing can designs, Mumford is always innovating. Below are a select few can designs produced with various techniques — from Illustrator vector patterns to fractal equations and cloth simulations in Cinema 4D.
Coasters are another canvas in every Brewery’s design arsenal. For this Mumford coaster series, I have written a Processign sketch that generated a new design with each execution. Simple repetition of Mumford’s logo with slightly changing size and rotation created dynamic, intricate and visually pleasing variations.
Love for patterns is something Mumford Brewing and I have in common. Even though this T-shirt design turned out to be challenging for printers, it was a very fun concept to explore.
Color Gradient Beers
For these glass beer packaging designs, I created a series of complex color gradients reminiscent of Mumford Brewing beers on the beach during California sunsets.
