An ad for an imaginary raspberry-flavored beer (no, I’m not a beer drinker) for a college design class. We created the labels in Illustrator, printed and attached them to a bottle, photographed it, and then used the image for our ad.Concept and copy were also mine. That’s actually my instructor, if I recall correctly…the man, not the dog.
