We started with her idea: lyrics from "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba with the four beverages mentioned in the name: a whiskey drink, a vodka drink, a lager drink, and a cider drink. I tried to find glasses/bottles that worked for the drinks, and asked her pertinent questions like "Rocks in the whiskey?" and "What kind of cider are you imagining?" Then I showed her different fonts, and with her approval, I moved forward with the design we'd picked! I've never made something with this level of customization before, and it was so fun to collaborate!
It's tough to stitch liquid--much less clear liquid like vodka, but I'm really pleased with the final result, and I think Kristen was too!
