It’s June, which means that degree-show time is upon us. Cue sleepless night, frantic days and fights over spraymount. Our degree show was so hardcore that we actually stole the printer from college (inkjet, not person) and threw our sketchbooks into the show through an open window after the deadline had passed. Got a First, though, boo-yah.
As seen at the Kingston degree show by one of our roving reporters was this set of drunken-themed wine bottles, illustrated with euphemisms for being pissed depending on the alcoholic strength of the wine.

Really, really cool labels for 1270 wine. If you’re using letterpress, then frankly you can do anything with the layout and designers will still get a a chub. But if we’re honest, although we love the aesthetic, they leave us a little bit cold. Rather than evoke the flavour and richness of the wine inside, they remind us more of a Stanislavski theatre studies textbook, which nobody want to enjoy on a sunny afternoon.
