Here is the winning design turned into the winning poster for the 2012 BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival by Jessica Crouch who also took home $1,000 to boot for the winning entry. The design is comprised of many forks formed into the shape of a wine bottle. The design also incorporates the No. 7, which the festival encouraged as its lucky number in its seventh year. Crouch said of her work, “By creating an array of stylized forks collaged together to make the shape of a wine bottle, I was able to capture the various unique tastes of the festival in a simple icon that is easily recognizable.”
Crouch, a graphic designer by trade, has made her home in Charleston now for more than six years after relocating from West Virginia. She has worked with clients including Lowcountry AIDS Services and Pet Helpers & also won a 2011 Silver Addy from the Advertising Federation of Charleston. So what do you think about the design?
The festival, which unveiled the poster last Wednesday night is something we have been looking forward to for a while at the Pigtail Brands Barbecue Sauces And Marinades camp as we will be exhibiting Big Ed’s Heirloom Barbeque Sauce in the Grand Tasting Tent on Saturday for the first time. We are very excited and hope to see everyone there. Get Saucy Charleston!
