Pears and Honey for Ballantine’s Scotch Whisky

Fri 03 May 2013

Computer Arts Mag have published a behind the scenes article on Steven Bonner.

"The Scottish illustrator brought pears, honey and more to life and created a bespoke typeface to boot in this thirst-quenching project for Ballantine’s Scotch Whisky. Award-winning illustrator Steven Bonner worked with digital agency Work Club to design an illustrated animation and typeface for Ballantine’s 12 Year Old, a premium Scotch Whisky. Briefed to illustrate the seven main tasting notes - vanilla, cream, clementine, berries, oak, pear and honey – as illuminated letters, Bonner treated each as an “exercise in expressive drawing”, with each letter telling the story of its own flavour."
