Creative Beer Websites 24-Pack Series:
The Spin Tab concept is a simple improvement based on current can packaging that identifies one consumer’s drink from another. Each beverage can is provided with a color ring painted on the top and the consumers can point to their favorite color by spinning the tab. The selected color can be seen through the hole in the top of the tab and provide distinction between different drinks at parties and at bars. Designer Zhongren Zhang says the ring can be extended to different designs including mood icons, nations or rival team logos.
Will Paint For Beer: Beck’s New Art Labels
More artsy than artisanal, Beck’s enlisted six independent artists to dress up its bottles with limited-edition labels—on sale now through the end of July at select retailers.
Collaborations with artists and graphic designers seems to be a pretty hot trend in label design these days, but this is no new concept for the brand. Beck’s has been promoting the work of artists on its bottles of suds for over 25 years now, including images by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Yoko Ono and Jeff Koons.
This year’s diverse lineup of creative types includes balloon sculpture artist Willy Chyr, hyper-clever Miami conceptual artists Bert Rodriguez and Freegums, Geoff McFetridge — the designer and artist who masterminded one very cool video for the band OK Go! with over2,000 pieces of toast — and M.I.A., better-known for her Grammy-nominated music. Check out labels below.
MillerCoors will launch this summer a new beverage: Coco Breve, a coconut water-infused clear malt beverage targeting women.
