I felt urged to leave a feedback for Isaac. Working with him has been a real pleasure. A truly professional, good design ideas, able to follow design guidelines with precision, and most of all a designer to trust. It happens that by my mistake he got paid before I had the final version of the files, and he kept working and making design adjustments for days after the contest finished, and uploading several version of files until I was totally satisfied with the end result. In a single word: Magnificent.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Apple cider from organic apples grown in the Australian High Country. A craft cidery making highest quality ciders.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Front label for 425mL cider bottles. I need 2 labels: one called "Harry Cider" and one called "Harriet Cider".
Harry Cider is a slightly bitter cider and Harriet Cider is slightly sweet cider.
At the moment I would just like the labels for the bottles but I am after 2 related logos (Harry and Harriet) and a design philosophy that can also be used on advertising material.
I am after something that
(1) fits with the location of my cidery—a small country town named Harrietville in the Australian High Country. Think remote forested hills, farms in the valleys, snow in Winter, mountain huts, crystal clear rivers
(2) suggests something unusual and unique—my cidery only produces a small quantity of the highest quality hand-crafted cider.
(3) has the feel of a traditional beer/cider bottle (not can!) label
Perhaps a drawing of a stylised Australian Harry and Harriet as icons for each cider. Nothing too serious--drinking cider is fun!
