Beer Stained Pulp celebrates the timeless quality and effectiveness of beer mat design
When looking for awesome new creativity to share we tend to look at the latest trends, emerging talents and across platforms that have traditionally proven to be rich hunting grounds. These tried and tested methods have allowed us to find tons of incredible work but recently we’ve been looking back at creative archives in order to find timeless ideas that will inspire and influence our communities future work. Whilst undertaking this process we came across an Instagram profile that was celebrating nicely designed beer mats and this quickly became one of our must follow accounts for 2019. Curated by Adam Kimberley, Beer Stained Pulp, illustrates how beautifully designed beer mats used to be. This Instagram page is loaded with visuals that champion the use of typography, colour, shape and graphics whilst remaining simple and direct. Their timeless quality and effectiveness are ideals that designers continues to aim for so if you are a budding creative then we recommend you take a look, follow and share this brilliant project.
