Volta

A Turn for the Better In Italian, the word volta means “turn”. A Google search led me to the Poetry Foundation who state, “In a sonnet, the volta is the turn of thought or argument.” Hmm, a turn… yes definitely a turn. Because if you asked me if I liked German beer about 2 years […]

V is for Vienna Lager Week 27 was a roller coaster ride of inspiration and process. I knew I wanted to create a Beer-Type logo for a Vienna Lager, so instead of choosing a font and then selecting a craft beer style to match, I did it the other way around. The original font wasn’t […]

Thirsty

Ok, so I couldn’t resist. What better name for a beer font logo than Thirsty? It’s not quite the dog-days of Summer just yet, but the warmer weather has me thinking about sippin’ brewskies by the side of the pool. A Summer Shandy is your craft beer of the week, you ask? Why yes, because […]

Week 20’s beer-type logo was fun! What better way to celebrate North Carolina craft beer and breweries than to play off the highway that connects them all? (Well, almost all of them. No offense to those off the main drag!) And what is better than 40 ounces of beer? A question I found myself asking […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo, y’all! (As heard hear ’round town in North Carolina that is.) In honor of this festive occasion we’ve all adopted as none other than a beer-drinking holiday, I present to you… Mexcellent! A “special beer”, this brew logo was inspired more by the holiday (and font name of course) than by […]

Belizio

Ok, so not many (any?) craft beers are brewed in Italian Tradition. Not even sure that makes sense! But this slab serif font is great for a beer-type logo, and the inspiration came to me after trying to research the origin of the name “Belizio”, which seems to be a family name hailing from Italy. […]

Raceway

Raceway

Raceway was chosen in honor of the Daytona 500, for which I was able to attend for the first time in my life (bucket list item—check). I’m not a huge fan of this font by any means. To be honest, in my humble opinion it’s kinda old school and the kerning is absolutely terrible. But […]

Nelson Engraved

A great beer type font in my opinion, Nelson Engraved is truly special. Paired with Nelson Ornaments, wonders can be achieved. (Note: the flourishes, stars and wood background are found in the Nelson Ornaments font. Even the little birdie at the top!) When crafting this beer-type logo, I decided a lager was the best craft […]
