Quail Cottage Meadery

Hello everyone! I am sorry it's been several weeks since my last post. I've been very busy working on a couple of commissions. The latest one is actually a job I picked up from my last post. Quail Cottage Meadery of San Francisco needed a label designed for their growing home brewing endeavors and contacted me! Gasp! I thought I would share a little of my process with you all.

The thumbnail/ idea generation stage is always my favorite part of the process. Elements I needed to incorporate into the label were quails, cottages, and mead (which is made from honey):

 I will keep you all posted on the progress, and if you are in the San Fran area keep your eyes out for Quail Cottage Meadery!


  1. i love love LOVE these! I really like the one where the quail is on the keg!

  2. That was my favorite too Hannah! The client preferred the quails sampling the mead idea better.
