I recently collaborate with my colleague Tereasa Surrat on a very special holiday gift for friends and clients. The gift is a limited-run maple syrup that looks like it was smuggled from prohibition era America. Inspired heavily by bootleg whiskey labels from the 20s and 30s, I created the Wandawega logo and hang tags for the bottle, which was then wrapped in newspaper from the 20s (found on ebay) tied with butcher string and laid inside a custom built wooden crate. Everything came together beautifully and looking at the resulting bottle you can almost picture them being snuck across state lines in the back of an old Ford Model T truck.
