Lighthouse Beer & Wine Festival Poster

by Kathryn Collins

Lighthouse Beer & Wine is a bottle shop located in Wrightsville Beach, NC. From domestic beer to high-end wine and everything in between, you are guaranteed to satisfy those taste buds with Lighthouse’s incredible selection. This family-owned shop is actively involved in Wilmington and continues to thrive in this beachside community.

THE CHALLENGE 

Every October, Lighthouse Beer & Wine puts on a wonderful event called The Beer & Wine Festival. The 15th annual festival will take place this year on October 29th from 1pm-5pm. Sage Island has been partnering with Lighthouse Beer & Wine for many years to help promote and advertise this awesome event though a custom designed graphic, which is displayed throughout the city on posters as well as online. This year, Lighthouse Beer & Wine wanted a Halloween-themed poster to highlight the timing and light-hearted appeal of the festival. The team at Sage Island set to work at crafting a creative, fun poster that perfectly fit the theme Lighthouse was looking for.

THE RESULT

“I always love getting the chance to work on the Lighthouse posters,” says Stephen Eyles, graphic design at Sage Island. “Every year we get to try something unique and exciting. They give us a chance to really let our imaginations run wild!” The 2016 poster certainly proves this! To fully highlight the style and theme of The Beer & Wine Festival, Stephen incorporated a beer sipping zombie to highlight the idea of Halloween and take advantage of the current zombie trend. The result is bright, eye-catching, and a little bit weird, and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

PS: If you want to attend this year’s festival, you’re in luck! Tickets are currently on sale and a portion of the proceeds go toward the Carousel Center. Drinking for a good cause—what could be better?
