Inspiration: when web designers go … to drink

The topic galleries of inspiration always arise in me a certain interest, especially if I have the fortune to find many collections related with the object of the design I’’m working on. It’s with this spirit- aware that I’ll make somebody happy- that today I’m gathering a rich collection of sites with an …”alcoholic  content”, sites that deal with beer, wine,  spirits  and whatelse.

So, if you’re working on the creation of a layout with this topic, or planning to do so in the near future… this collection is for you. Be inspired!

Considerations

Apart some  exceptions where you opt for a particular and intentionally eccentric layout, for wine shops sites and, more specifically,  for  single labels, layout with a classic, elegant and sophisticated cut is preferred.

In most all of these sites, the predominant  color is white and the graphic style adopted is decisively minimalist,  in order to emphasize the beautiful emotional images or the professional photos of the wine bottles.

Considerations

The site layout of breweries, or of  single labels, choose  a “grunge “ style, less sophisticated than the one used for wine shop sites.

In many layouts,  wood texture and details of green are used to recall conceptually the typical setting of  Irish pubs. Other graphic elements that often find approval  in this kind of layout are paper- effect textures, mats, brushes that trace the strains of “bottom glasses”, this messy style   is certainly appropriate for the target group to which these sites are focused on, a target  completely different from the one that turns to wine bars.
