Most Boiseans who drank a Blue Moon this summer may not have realized they shared something in common with the art on the label: The artist who created the design is Conrad Garner, a former Boisean. Garner graduated from Boise State University with degrees in graphic design and visual arts before moving to Tampa, Fla., to work as an art director for a national branding and advertising company. Garner submitted his artwork to Blue Moon Brewing's 20th Anniversary Artist Series competition and won. Along with his artwork appearing on thousands of Blue Moon bottles, he received $20,000. This Boise State alum is one we're proud to call our own—even if he did leave us for the sunny beaches of Florida.
