Beer for Any Occasion

ISO American Aleedit_IMG_7854I was in charge of organizing an ISO meeting on image permanence and durability in Chicago, and one of the members had offered to brew beer for the occasion. A plain brown bottle wouldn’t do. I took a couple of old photos I had taken in Chicago and added some text. The resulting beer bottles are distinctive and serve to document the event. Some attendees even took their bottles home with them.

I used Artisan to add the text. While the program is intended for photo books and photo gifts, its flexibility, along with the ability to save and print the resulting design, makes it ideal for special projects.
