Endurest

Enduring 52 Weeks of Beer-Type Logo Designs! Week 52’s logo was somewhat of a culmination of my year-long personal graphic design project. I’ve been wanting to use the Endurest font for a few weeks now, after stumbling across it on Creative Market. In typical Beer-Type fashion, I wasn’t originally sure how or when I would […]

F25 Executive

Secret agent, man! Week 41: F25 Executive. This font reminds me of spies and secret documents. And since it’s an undercover theme, why not a stout? I’ve been itching to design a logo like this for some time—both the blacked out letters, as well as the reverberating overlaps of color. F25 Executive is a free […]

Rye

Give a Rye a Try I was struggling to find the perfect font for an Oktoberfest Beer-Type concept. I went through what seemed my entire font catalog and still no luck. So what’s a logo type designer to do? Head over to Google Webfonts, that’s what… And what did my weary eyes find? A font […]

I Smell Bacon Week 38’s Beer-Type logo is a play on meat packaging. I originally created a logo with the Carlingford font for a construction company here in Hickory. But upon initial review, all parties agreed it would make a better logo for a bacon label than it would for construction! I’m not big on […]

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 […]

Rio Oro

A River of Gold? I’ve been eying the Rio Oro font for a few months now wondering what kind of Beer-Type logo it could make. I thought surely it would turn out to be a cerveza of Spanish descent or maybe even something Wild West or even California gold rush. But then my taste buds […]

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 […]

A Tribute Celebration Week 25’s Beer-Type Logo design is a tribute to one of my all-time favorite craft breweries. Can you guess which one it is? That’s right, Sierra Nevada. And the font used on their beer labeling and branding is almost as iconic as their beer. I mean, if you were designing a beer […]

Here we are, Thursday night again—a new tradition. Sippin’ some craft brew and designin’ some logos. But hey, if that’s a bad thing, please clue me in. Week 21 is very much inspired by my choice beverage du jour: Epic Brewing’s Brainless Raspberries. And it sure enough is a good one! A great font for […]
