In this conversation with designer and cocktail author Nick Barclay, some of the topics we discuss include:


  • How Nick made his way to Australia by way of the UK, and how the Land Down Under’s flourishing cocktail culture inspired him to start designing for the liquid medium.
  • What Nick means when he aims for “simplicity” of design, either in a print, in his book, Measurements: A Proportional Cocktail Guide, or in an actual cocktail.
  • Some of the challenges behind creating 2-dimensional visual representations of 3-dimensional objects like cocktail glasses and garnishes.
  • How color became an important consideration when representing the proportional relationships between different ingredients in drinks.
  • A few thoughts on the wine culture in Australia as compared to consumer tastes in Canada and the US.
  • The trials and tribulations of a cocktail lover who doesn’t enjoy the taste of whiskey
  • And much, much more.
