Art and design

There's been an occasional sideways glance at art and design on here. It's something I'm becoming more interested in; how brewery branding works from pumpclip to bottle label to beer mat. How a photo can (almost) capture the essence of a great pub but never really do the same for the beer within. Why anti-design still works in our consumer culture. Why glassware sometimes transcends marketing and utility and becomes a work of art.

Why Orval is the sexiest bottle ever designed.

Here's a few posts featuring art and design: expect more.
