LOVELY DAY FOR A GUINNESS
This summer is a summer like no other. The sun is shining, the days feel longer, and the pints are colder. To celebrate this summer and to showcase Lovely Day for a Guinness, Guinness is delighted to announce the second in a series of collaborations with Dublin-based artist and illustrator Kathi “Fatti” Burke. The Guinness summer line was created by Irish illustrator and artist Fatti Burke and Dublin 8 gallery and studio Hen’s Teeth. They have joined forces to create a capsule collection that brings Lovely Day For A Guinness to life.
From festivals and beer gardens to BBQ’s and road trips, this colourful collection has you covered. Fatti’s instantly recognisable designs don the eye-catching slogan t-shirts, tote bags and bucket hats as well as prints which have all taken inspiration from Guinness’ iconic trademarks.
Kathi, who is an award-winning illustrator from Co. Waterford, has been working as an illustrator since graduating from the National College of Art and Design in 2012. Her work revolves around the things she loves – food, home, jokes, colours and creamy pints of Guinness! Her bold colours, patterns and designs bring playful energy and life into her work and has achieved just that in this line of vibrant wearables.
Speaking about the collaboration, Kathi says; "I’m so delighted to be teaming up with Guinness again to create the Lovely Day for a Guinness collection, I've had the best time bringing that specific type of Irish sunny day joy to other Guinness lovers! That unique blend of a lovely bit of weather, a creamy cold pint and finding a great spot outside for all your mates is the best feeling!"
Also speaking about the capsule collection; Niamh Commins, Senior Culture & Entertainment Manager at Guinness said; “We are thrilled to collaborate with Kathi Burke and Hen’s Teeth as we embed ‘Lovely Day for a Guinness’ in consumer culture this summer. It’s a holistic, fun and energetic partnership. Kathi’s vibrant and distinctive artistic lens, as well as her clever wit, help us to inject fresh colour into Guinness in a way that is eye-catching and relevant. As always, the team at Hen’s Teeth bring such energy and ambition to all they do on the streets of Dublin 8 and beyond. This is a collection of collaboration, fun and summer energy – we look forward to seeing it on the streets, beach and beyond!”
The collection is available to purchase at the All Together Now festival, the Guinness Storehouse Retail store, and on https://shop.guinness-storehouse.com and in Hen’s Teeth Studio in Blackpitts, Dublin 8. In 2021, Hen’s Teeth and Fatti designed a pub snug – an immersive installation celebrating the beating heart of the iconic Irish pub.
Guinness is breaking into new sunny territories to support Lovely Day for a Guinness, with its biggest summer ever - showing up at festivals across the summer, including, All Together Now, the Big Grill and the Galway Races.
