Age Old Grain is a student produced Whiskey company that is based and Distilled out of New Richmond, WI with the 45th Parallel Distillery. It follows a style of Art Nouveau, and uses hand drawn and produced typography and graphics. I started with basic sketches followed by rough drafts, inking, scanning, and finally a long vectorizing process. I laser-cut my graphics and fit them to my custom bottle and corks.
My packaging has a very unique cork that I hand-designed and crafted. It is a simple wine cork that fit my bottle, and has a porcelain topper that I painted black and strategically screwed into my cork. The width of my porcelain is the flush with my bottle neck as well. My Designs are all custom, hand drawn, carefully vectorized to mimic perfect circles.
