Here’s another fun design project by Minnesota illustrator David Schwen. It’s a poster depicting nine beer cans representing characters from across varying pop cultures. The identity of some of the cans are fairly obvious while others were inscrutably unknown to me, presumably because I’ve become more old curmudgeon and less with-it-hipster. I can say with certainty I knew 6 of 9 — itself a pop reference — or one-third of them right off the bat. Two more I figured out, more or less, and the remaining one I never got, though now that I know it, it makes sense. Think you know them all? Leave a comment identifying all nine.
You can even buy a print of the poster in five different sizes at Society 6.
