Last week CraftBeer.com posted an article about Information Resources, Inc.'s 2015 craft brewery sales data. According to their research, Funky Buddha Brewery of Oakland Park, Florida came in first with nearly $1 million in sales in 2015, and Wake Forest, NC-based White Street Brewing Co. came in fifth, with nearly a quarter-million in sales. I am very excited because I had the honor of art directing these two breweries over the last few years.
From the article...
During my time at The Brandit I worked directly with both of these clients, developing all of the packaging for White Street Brewing Company and creating the brand-level art direction for all of Funky Buddha's products. Dan Bowman, principal of The Brandit, was the creative director on both of these clients. While I personally created the lettering for White Street, I worked with Rubens Scarelli to develop the illustrations for each of Funky Buddha's packages.
