Forgotten Boardwalk is an artfully devious microbrewery and teller of tales located in Cherry Hill, NJ. Led by Jamie Queli, one of the youngest female brewery owners in the U.S., they seek to craft beer that sparks curiosities through deliciously unique flavors and the folklore of the Jersey Shore Boardwalk.
Original brand and packaging designed by Perky Bros / CD Jeff Perky  ​​​​​​​
Each can features a story of sideshow oddities, historic events and darker side of the boardwalk’s past. I worked with the team at Perky Bros to design and illustrate two cans based on their original packaging.

The background on Fake Radio War can’s true tale: In 1938, radio star Orson Welles annihilated the world with a tall tale of Martians invading the earth. Newspapers fanned the flames by writing of the Fake Radio War that terrorized a nation. What few realize is that the real battle wasn't a war between worlds, but a fight for the eyes and ears of a country.
The background on my second can, For Amusement Only: Before pinball games had flippers, winning was much more luck than skill. Laws were enacted to ban pinball gambling in most major cities. Manufacturers tried to evade the bans with labels that said "For Amusement Only." By the 1940s, many pinball machines had been destroyed. The last pinball ban was finally lifted in 2016.
