Design Curiosities: Alter for Colonial Brewery Co.

Alter 1

Alter 2

I like a well designed beer can as much as the next guy/designer, but at some point they all start to look the same. Melbourne based design studio, Alter really killed it with this can though. Colonial Draught is a Kölsch ale from Margaret River, Western Australia’s Colonial Brewery Co. Having not tried the beer myself, I can only comment on the clean, fresh, and refreshingly drinkable nature of the design. Cheers!

Good Goods: Sugar and Rice





We first saw Sugar and Rice at the MFAH bookstore, and we purchased it on design alone. It wasn’t until later that we realized what a great read it was. It’s an independent magazine devoted to the food and culture that can be found on the Gulf Coast. Great content and beautiful design. You can find retailers/purchase this issue on Sugar and Rice. The design team behind the publication is an office located in Houston called Always Creative. They do great work.

Try This: Mochi


One of our favorite treats from Trader Joe’s. Mochi is ice cream encased in dough and dusted with rice flour (so they won’t stick to everything). We are partial to the strawberry and chocolate varieties, but they also come in mango and green tea. The texture is great, and the single serving is nice. We can usually resist the urge to gorge ourselves, unlike when we just get a pint. ※ photograph by dc
