Adobe Design Achievement Awards 2017 Semifinalist—Commercial—Packaging
Bold and refreshingly hoppy, Holy Ghost is a monastic pale ale that boasts a brass-toned body as clear and translucent as a divine apparition. Finished with a papal-inspired wax seal crown, its design features an ornate interlacing mantis border, gothic typography, gold leaf accents, and Christian iconography influenced by Celtic illuminated manuscripts. Its uniquely-shaped deep green bottle is reminiscent of medieval elixirs and alchemy. Central to the design is the pious mantis, resplendent in its ecclesiastical robe, cloaked in cardinal red, and consumed by the Holy Ghost in prayer.
