These six beer bottles showcase three different essays about psychopathy. Initially, I discovered the article You Might be a Psychopath if you Like IPAs based on my interest in IPAs. I figured the bitterness is an acquired taste, so I looked up “What kind of people like IPAs,” and it was the first article to come up. It basically explains how people who tolerate or enjoy bitter flavors are linked to having psychotic characteristics. Because it’s focusing on taste and beer, I laid out the essay amongst a six-pack of beer.
Since I displayed the essay on beer bottles, I felt I should design it to look like a realistic brand. That’s when I researched more articles on the topic. One article talks about characteristics psychopaths have and the second was a list of brutal psychopaths. I featured six different psychopaths across the bottles which includes their name and a gory fact about them. I used the article about the different personality traits to look like a warning label like a beer bottle would have.
