I created an illustrated brand icon for Black Dove Vodka, a vodka distillery based in Sydney who specialise in dark cherry infused vodka.
Black doves are often interpreted in dreams and fortune telling as a signifier of a contradiction or turn of events in ones life. Using the aesthetic of tarot cards as inspiration, we wanted to create something macabre but beautiful. The symmetry in the tree branches and the doves feet were deliberate as well, as it create a disturbing and surreal atmosphere.
Black Dove Vodka is inspired by the unity of opposites. Taking vodka, a bitter and colourless spirit, and infusing it with the intensely sweet flavour of dark cherries.
