Wild Ride

Get set for a Wild Ride! Week 49’s Beer-Type logo was once again inspired by a type of beer rather than the typeface itself. I knew I wanted to create Christmas style beer logo, but not one that was over-the-top with holly berries or Santa hats. I also knew I wanted to create a stout […]

Off-farm Beers Are Good Too! Week 48. Just when I was going through my head and milling over the types of beer for which I could make a logo… a beer style I had never tried before! Enter Bloody Butcher Appalachian Grisette from Morganton, NC’s Fonta Flora Brewery, one of the more rare beer styles […]

Bold Flavors and Heaps of Hops to Warm the Soul The weather’s getting colder in North Carolina. What better way to warm up than with a nice barrel-aged barley wine! Barleywines are strong ales with high ABV (yeah, that’ll warm you up) which typically get better with age. You’d think from the name “Barley Wine” […]

A Rather Sly Beer Logo The Beer-Type logo for Week 46 came together at the 11th hour. Literally, around 11:00pm last night, I found myself redirecting what I thought was going to be a rugged, distressed Porter logo into a hand-drawn illustration built around an entirely different font. I love it when a design comes […]

Feast of Flesh

Sometimes Scary Good, Other Times Just Plain Scary Fall brings leaves of color, trick-or-treaters and all kinds of new craft beers to try! Of course many of those seasonal brews are pumpkin beers. They seemed to arrive super-early this year, much like how Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year. Pumpkin beers get mixed reviews, […]

The Good Kind of Funk! Week 42’s Beer-Type logo is inspired as much by a place as it is a beer. My wife and I recently took a quick trip up to Beech Mountain, NC to meet and stay with some friends, and I’ve been thinking ever since about how I could tie that into […]

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 […]

“We brew it, we drink it” Week 40’s Beer-Type logo is unlike others of this project. It was created for a particular beer—more specifically a personal homebrew. Now, I don’t brew a lot of beer. I’m more of the “assistant” brewer. (Read assistant as: the guy who drinks other beer during the brewing process and […]
