Whisky bottle design insanity

There’s a great blog post about packaging design and antique bottles, inspired by this monstrosity from Highland Park.

After seeing the packaging design for Highland Park 50 year old it made me think back to the days that I don't¬†actually¬†have any memories of; the days when there wasn't a bunch of goofy stuff on a whiskey bottle and all you had was good clean glass color and simple type. Lucky for us there are sites like Antique Bottles so we can all have look back and find a little color inspiration. We’re also checking in with current popular brands and their label colors and designs. Drink up, cheers!

Some fonts are not available on the computers of visitors and this may crease some problems. It’s far better to utilize the usual but professional fonts. Designers could also limit the images they include to keep the site nice and clean. They may also minimize graphics within their design. More often than not, the white space presents a much better overall appeal. κατασκευή ιστοσελίδων
