As beers fight to be seen in niche shops and bars across the globe. Many breweries are now seeking the work of local artists and illustrators to design their labels. We’re a sucker for a nice label and definitely feel the pull for artistic flair in the beer isle.
One artist currently selling work behind our Red Doors has paired up with a local bar to design labels and other illustrated goodies to help them stand out from the crowd.
Hannah Botma, who you all know and love for her Dinosaur prints, also works as Creative Director at Hanging Bat. Designing everything from Labels to Signage within their bar and sister bar Spit/Fire. If you’re after a good beer on your next visit to Edinburgh then these are two highly recommended stops for their great selection of local and world beers.
