I was just recently notified that the government approved our label for the new Summertime brew. The design was designed for a 12oz. can. The beer goes into production on Friday and we look forward to sampling it. This label was inspired and designed for people who enjoy their time cruising on the Mississippi River or some pond in the middle of nowhere. One again I wanted to capture the nostalgia of old time beer labels with a slightly new feel. As soon as I can get my hands on the first 6 pack I will report back with reviews and photos of the sexy new can. Cheers.

There is a great piece on page 6 and 7. HINT: It's me. Spoiler Alert: It's about the award I won. Note: It has all the other winners from different categories too so it's not a total loss. Some good competition this year. I invite you to check it out. What is the point of a blog without shameless self endorsement and being a smug bastard once in awhile.
I had the honor of winning a GOLD American Advertising Award for my package design and marketing campaign for "Duber Pilsner Bier" brewed by Dubuque Beer Company in Dubuque, IA.
The next step is moving on in the upcoming national competition. That's where they separate the men from the boys, or girls from the women to be politically correct. This country. It was a pretty great honor and something I had been working on for a long time. I will keep you posted on upcoming events in case someone, besides my mother, is reading this. Cheers for now!
Would you believe I spent time trying to come up with a catchy headline and that's what I settled with? Meh, it's Friday at 5:15pm. After much prep and updates, changes, material, and ink. We finally finished my latest t-shirt design. I wanted to create a tourist shirt that lets people know what Dubuque's all about. Da-booooze Iowa.. get it.. ok, I'm done.. I'm stupid.. no more workie.
If you are interested in purchasing one they are exclusively sold at Murph's Tap in Dubuque Iowa.
