This logo design request is for a beer & wine festival in Washington, DC on Saturday, August 16th, 2014. We are planning to pick a winning design very quicklybecause we need to have our final logo up on a website by Friday morning, 6/20. We are a very responsive client and will be quickly giving feedback for logos we like and also for those that are not headed in the right direction.
The name of the event is the DC International Beer & Wine Festival HOWEVER we are not necessarily wedded to having the wine in the logo, we think its less wordy to remove it and the primary draw for everyone is the beer, not the wine so I think the phrase wed like to use is DC International Beer Festival or perhaps, better yet, DC International Beerfest as the URL for our website is www.dcinternationalbeerfest.com (the website is not yet fully updated from our summer event a month ago, called Summerfest)
The phrase DC International Beerfest or DC International Beer Festival is, at this point, the only words we want to include in the logo.
The concept for the event is that its the United States versus the World with 30 breweries from the USA and 30 breweries from across the world, our attendees will be able to have unlimited samples of any of these beers, deciding for themselves what the best or their favorites are a good entry for this logo will find a clever way to emphasize that its half US beers and half global beers, or that theres a competition for the best beer element to the festival (but theres no real, judged competition, so we dont want to push it too hard and confuse people).
Theres no particular color palette that wed like to use so that is up to the designer.
We would like to include some elements that gives the logo a sense of place in Washington DC (but then also the international angle as well, which may be a challenge when coming up with this logo. We would also like to include some elements of beer (& maybe wine)wheat stalks, beer mugs, etc.
Our logo would ideally work in two versions:
One that is more landscape/rectangular for use on top of our website, in Facebook cover photos, for when a more wide version is needed, then another version thats square for use on social media icons, printing on beer mugs at the event, etc. We dont expect a designer to create different art for each of these, but instead the art should be easily adaptable to each use.
A good reference for what we mean with the two versions is to look at the Crowdspring design competition we ran for our last event Summerfest DC. Thats at: http://www.crowdspring.com/logo-design/p...
