A recipe book—
for classic cocktails
Project Title—Hunting Blind Tigers
Objective—design a conceptual cookbook. This collection of cocktail recipes explores modern bars that celebrate historic speakeasy culture and serve up classic drinks with a new twist. The book offers a look into modern speakeasy bars while offering up some of their famous recipes for readers to recreate in their own home bars. A guide to essential liquors and bar equipment and glassware is also included.
Design—a modern interpretation of a bygone era. The overall visual direction of the book is very much inspired by the past. Geometric patterns throughout the book are meant to recall Art Deco styles of the 1920's, but with a distinctly moden application. Stamp-like motifs, often running off the page, refer back to older and more inexact printing techniques. A variety of lush color pairings create a visual richness that recalls the sensory experience of enjoying a well-mixed drink in an intimate setting.
