Cocktails

Browsing a stationery store recently I stumbled across index cards sold in packets of 100. For those of you too young to have seen these in the wild, they were most commonly found in libraries and other places where cataloging was worthwhile pre-computer proliferation.

I immediately wanted to use them for something and so I decided to embark on a small design project to support a hobby I started about a year ago - cocktails!

I decided to use them like recipe cards, and make a small illustration for each one. For the illustrations, I wanted a minimal, line drawn, flat colour style, with each cocktail presented in isometric. Being an avid Blender user for years now, rather than use Illustrator for these, I modelled each one in 3D and then used Freestyle (which is built into Blender) to create the line drawn style I was after.

Here's what a single card looks like for my favourite cocktail, the Negroni!
