Layout Design Bootcamp – Episode 2 – Label / Drink Coaster

Welcome to episode 2 of Layout Design Bootcamp where my goal is to take you through entire design layouts to show you the exact process of how it’s done. In this second episode, I continued to implement the brand of “Barrelers Beer” that I developed in Logo Design Bootcamp Episode number 2. I decided to design a label that will go on a standard beer bottle and a coaster for that beer to stand on. This tutorial will teach you so many things including:


  • Figuring out the correct size for your layout
  • Setting up your document correctly
  • Setting up your images for a print layout
  • Using transparencies
  • Locking & unlocking elements
  • Content-Aware fill
  • Clipping masks
  • Envelope mesh distorts
  • Balance of design
  • Saving for print
  • Brush strokes
  • and of course…..much more!
