Haha, you remember the Ropana piece sketches? I did announce a businesscard design & restyle in that blogpost aswell, Paul asked me to do it.. And as it is a company that has to keep the safety near the metrorails when there is maintenance work to do, you never know when they're working; I got a couple of months for finetuning before I could speak properly to my client and then.. My order was placed at DrukwerkDeal haha. My design was 1000 times thought but without the help of DrukwerkDeal it wouldn't have came out too well! I really liked the way of ordering (when uploading a file they test it for you on crop marks, cmyk colours, overset text and more!) and my 200 business cards were here in 2 days!

So back to the subject: I got a old business card from him with the message he 'wanted something new'. I am getting more and more familiar with printing methods and things that are essential when designing, so when I got the card it was a bit of a laugh.

So the restyle was more dark, because they often work in the night and the tunnels is what the subway is famous for. Also made an illustration of a typical 'Walki Talki'; They use them to contact the subway company when there are problems, or they want to ask a question about the status of the railway tunnel they're working on. Nice and full of info.

The back was more empty, the greenish tints are used again but in a negative way.. Also the key info elements are added at the bottom. A nice new touch for Ropana!


Thanks to GraphicBurger for providing this mockup!

Hi followers! If you guys read my blog from the start on, you maybe notice I've made a (home)printable beerlabel for my uncle's homebrew beer. The label was for the 'Honing Tripel', a nice 10 percent alcohol beer with an soft honey flavor. The end result really asked for an return.. So here we go! Its a beautiful opportunity to practice producing a printable and paste-able label.

We already created the 'Honing Tripel' design (in the middle). There's a nice beer structure on the back and the display of a bee doing his work. The left one is a snow covered mountain in the evening.. I wanted to give it a warmer feeling because its a christmas special called 'Kerst Bier'. The vector shows some snowflakes falling down. And last but not least; the right side. This one depends on the season, but I thought autumn colours would fit on this 'Seizoens Bok'. Again a mountain (in daylight this time), with in the display 2 falling leaves.

We already talked about a fourth piece to complete the puzzle; A cherry flavored beer. This is getting more and more creative! We didn't catch a name for it yet, first we want a name for the brewery itself. The logo is that little A on the left of the labels, because my uncle owned a pharmacy when he was younger. That got him into beer brewing. More in a short amount of time!

Long time no see guys! New works are on their way. I chose a plotted design to be noticed in the streets or anywhere else. It is in full colour and after the print they coated it with UV protection foil, to protect it from the violence that mother nature produces from time to time. Got it done in three colours.. Without noticing I could drop some 'Seck Head' traffic lights now haha. Dope!


Trafficlight placement!
