CS Labels celebrate winning four awards and a high commendation for digital labels in 2017.

As the awards season comes to an end we are really delighted to celebrate four wins and a high commendation this year.  This is the most we’ve ever won in a single year. 

The project that we worked on with Leeds based geniuses at Northern Monk BrewCo, their Californian friends Fieldwork Brewing and the travel giant Lonely Planet  scooped four of the gongs. The Travel Notes peel and reveal label has been recognised for its outstanding display of great labels and graphic design that has been optimised for digital print.

The peel and reveal label showcases a floral, fruity IPA which features five ingredients sourced from five continents. It offers a world of extraordinary flavours explored in Lonely Planet’s Global Beer Tour. It is a peelable label, and you can read all about the beer while you drink.

On the Labels award the judges said “Great use of colour spectrum and diversity of front label and inside peel and reveal label. Imagery also relates to ingredients of the beer.”
