LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
We're starting a small brewing effort based out of Seattle, WA. At first we are going to be non-commercial, but we still want to have a brand around our efforts. In the future we hope to evolve our brewing into a more serious outlet, but for now it's just a hobby.
We make 5 gallon batches of both lagers and ales and take great pride in throwing parties to drink the beer we make. Our favorite brew we make is the Carlos IPA which is a super-hoppy IPA much like Stone IPA.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We're looking for a logo for our brewery. This logo will be used on pint glasses, t-shirts, our website, and of course bottles of our beer.
In addition to a stand-alone logo we'd like a logo that adapts itself well to being modified for labels of specific brews. For example we may have a t-shirt with the Twin Bridges Brewing Company logo and a beer label for a specific type of beer say the Carlos IPA. I imagine this coming together in a logo with an arched top and our name with our art in the center. The art could then be replaced with at specific to the type of beer and a beer style name on the bottom (this is similar to how Deschutes Brewery's logo is designed (http://www.deschutesbrewery.com/brews/ye... - you'll notice their generic logo in the upper left and the brew specific logo on each beer label).
For our art in the logo we'd like a rendition of the two bridges nearby our brewery: The Fremont Bridge and the Aurora Bridge. We think that a rendering of the Fremont Bridge in the open position with the Aurora bridge above it would look good. See the attached photo for an example. We're open to both a perspective shot of this or a head on rendering.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Beer drinkers! We'd like to convey a slightly rustic and authentic feel. Ideally the logo shouldn't look too clean or neutered. We'll always be a small craft brewery so we should convey a unique hand-crafted feel.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
As mentioned above we're big fans of the style of Deschutes Brewery: http://www.deschutesbrewery.com/brews/ye...
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
We would prefer to have the fonts used in the design as well.
