Espinas Mezcal Bottle Design

by Maryville University

This is my Capstone Project for my BFA in Graphic Design at Maryville University. I chose to do branding and packaging for a mezcal(similar to tequila). Espinas means "spiky", which describes the agave plant from which mezcal comes. I created the bottle design for four different "flavors" based on the species of agave used to make the mezcal. I created various motifs, each of which is used on one bottle. However, there are small flourishes I use throughout all of the bottles so as to create a cohesive group of bottle designs.
