Carolyn's Sakonnet Vineyard

Wine Label Illustrations

Next Image Title

Artist Name

I designed and illustrated nine wine labels for Sakonnet Vineyard, an award-winning vineyard in Little Compton, RI. The goal was to create colorful, highly-detailed, eye-catching labels that would entice new shoppers to try the brand. These labels were very successful; the vineyard now produces these images on wine charms, and displays them large-scale in their tasting room.

Profile

I am a designer and illustrator who specializes in colorful, whimsical illustrations, hand lettering, and simple vector designs. I have a degree in illustration from Syracuse University, and was lead product designer for Alex and Ani, a globally recognized jewelry brand. For six years I honed my skill at A&A, working on seasonal collections and special projects such as Harry Potter, Disney Parks, and Disney Consumer Products. Today, I continue my work designing pins, patches, jewelry, and other merchandise for Wildflower and Co., while also running my own charity-focused pin shop Riddle and Jinx. Additionally, I've illustrated wine labels for Sakonnet Vineyard, and I am always painting whimsical watercolors in my down time. I love a design challenge, never miss a deadline, and am looking forward to finding new, inspiring clients in 2019!
