Jazz Mutt 2015

This is the first label in the Jazz Mutt series of beers. These beers are made to share with friends at our yearly trip to the Saratoga Springs Jazz Festival.

I outlined an image of a saxaphone then turned it into a siloutte. The mutt was created in Photoshop and in Graffle. Why Graffle? Because it was convenient and I didn't have another scalable vector graphic (SVG) application handy at te time (I'm currently using Boxy SVG). The lamp was created in Photoshop. For such a simple label, this took a surprising amount of time to create!

The "K&D" logo appears on all our beer labels. I created it based on an old photograph of Daine and I in front of one of Diane's quilts.

This is another label that doesn't use the standard "Brewed and Bottled..." ribbon across the bottom because it wouldn't work with the overall design.
