Longwood Brewery approached us to create unique brands for each of their beers.
We created the name Stoutnik for their Russian Imperial Stout. It seemed a fitting choice for a beer as dark as space itself.
The packaging design features a matte black bottle, prismatic foil stamp on the logo and wordmark, and an embossed Morse Code story about the beer.
