Over the last couple months I’ve been enamored with the work of Simon Walker. He’s an Austin, Texas based designer/typographer who does some of the most consistently great branding work I’ve ever seen. He’s been working on a project with Austin Eastciders for a while now to brand their newly released Gold Top Cider. I found it interesting because I would see different designs pop up on Flickr, slowly progressing to the final packaging which you can see up there on the left.
Simon had created some designs with stickers and labels, but I have to say that this version, with the simple white silkscreening, is my personal favorite. I think the goldness of the cider is so strong and intense, it only serves to make his beautiful design work look even better. You can see a couple of the earlier versions below.
Now they only need an online shop so I can order myself a case! You should also check out all of Simon’s work on Dribbble so you can understand just how good he is.
