Making the leap from homebrewing, Rob Kolb and Anthony Acardi opened New York City’s Transmitter Brewing in the spring of 2014 with a focus on farmhouse styles. Their highly-rated releases feature a collection of over 20 isolated strains of Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus.
The brewery is named for its original neighbor, Brooklyn’s Transmitter Park. The labels, however, draw inspiration from the QSL cards used by HAM radio operators. Jeff Rogers has created a unique set of labels that, together, are perfectly cohesive.
My philosophy for these is more is more. The design approach also appeals to me because of my painting background. I use layers and layers of color and texture in my work, so layering with type really makes sense to me from a design perspective.
