The Immortal IPA – Elysian Brewing

Elysian Brewing recently unveiled a label refresh for one of its OG beers, which was first brewed over 25 years ago. As one of their longest standing beers, Immortal’s original label was inspired by Greek mythology, showcasing Zeus sitting defiantly on his throne as he harnesses heaven’s lightning into a vibrant scepter of power and fire. 

Seeking to maintain a connection to the beer’s original roots, Elysian’s design team approached the Immortal refresh by looking at the original tagline ‘Power in Balance’ as a jumping-off point for new art. They had attempted to refresh the brand several times over the past few years, but nothing really clicked until this original narrative was introduced into a tarot framework – an idea that was first sparked last year. 

To further build upon this framework, each of the designers were enrolled in a tarot class and the synchronicity helped to inform and illuminate this direction they’d ultimately charted. Individually, each designer created a tarot card that represents a different part of Immortality. Together all three cards tell an interconnected story, but individually represent a different part of Immortality:

  • Turtle + Lion: Balance / The Immortal Balance
  • Old Man: Wisdom / The Immortal Wisdom
  • Snakes: Power / The Immortal Power

Sisi Spray n’ Style

Tired of bad hair after an hour at the gym? Or losing space in your luggage trying to fit your hair care essentials? Sisi Spray N’ Style solves every one of these everyday problems.

Years of struggling to brush and style her daughter’s hair left Jessica Urzua feeling frustrated. The brush bristles were always too hard, and she couldn’t get the detangling product worked in fast enough. Both causing sensory overload to her child.

True to a mom’s problem-solving nature, Jessica came up with the idea to combine a gentle brush with a spray bottle, and Sisi Spray N’ Style was born.

  • DETANGLE: Using a mix of boar hair bristles and nylon pins, the brush glides through wet or dry hair with ease.
  • MASSAGE: The curved brush head massages your scalp with each brushstroke, creating a fun and relaxing sensation that even the most sensitive of kids will love.
  • VERSATILE: The compact design allows you to take the brush with you anywhere. Perfect for gym-goers and any person on the go as you will no longer need to pack large bottles of hair product. The Sisi Spray N’ Style is also TSA-approved, also making it perfect for travelers who need that precious luggage space.
  • REUSABLE: Each brush comes with three reusable spray bottles so you can have all your hair care needs readily available. The vacuum-style bottles also make cleaning simple and easy.
