Cattrall Sisters Pinot Noir
Cattrall Vineyards has been around since 1972, but this is the first release of the two sisters Julia and Laura, marking the next generation of Cattrall following in the footsteps of their ancestors.
Julia Cattrall approached me to create a label for her and her sister Laura's first release.
They both wanted to create their own mark, while paying tribute to their family's history and the land from which it came.
With the sisters' story in mind, as well as the wine which was to be an unfiltered Pinot Noir, I aspired to covey a sense of history, beauty, and depth. The background of the label is from a screen print I created from the back of two of my grandparents' photographs.
Creating the visual for this label was a very collaborative process. Julia photographed a bird's nest near the winery, and even sent me a few by mail for me to photograph. Using these, I was able to create an image full of layer and depth to tell the story of the Cattrall Sisters. The label design was completed with a blue wax seal that matched the robin's blue eggs in the nest.

Wine Riot Chicago Postcards
Love this project I did for Chicago Wine Riot! I created these limited hand screen printed postcards for the event. I wanted them to be an updated version of the classic "greetings from" postcards. The idea was to let people attending WR to fill out postcards at the event and Second Glass paid the postage! It paired beautifully with Second Glass's hi-tech iPhone App.
