This is a package design for Sunk Nitro Cold Brew. The nautical theme is utilized to emphasize the use of sea salt to combat bittiness and accentuate the brew’s natural flavors. The logo for Sunk is rendered by hand as are all of the the supporting illustrations.

The solution was to create an infographic on the back that went over the steps of brewing so people would have a fuller understanding of the product.
