I am opening a beer shop in my town and I need a brand new and stylish logo to go with it and it needs to be cool as hell.
First things first, the beer shop will be named Fat Cat. I want Fat Cat Pivoteka - Beer Shop to be written on the logo (pivoteka means beer shop in my language).
I included some beer logos/designs you can look at to give you an idea of what I like. The 5 Barrel Pale Ale and IPA designs from Odell Brewing Co. look best to me (absolutely top notch), also the picture with multiple beers from the same brewery on it looks really good.
Now, I don't want the logo to be overly complicated, but give it some character. It has to be clean, recognisable and versatile. If you are going to incorporate a fat cat in the design, make the cat simplistic and/or stylized.
The colors: red or blue with the addition of cream, white or gold. A combination of two colors works best for me, but don't feel like you are limited to only colors I mentioned. The combination from the 5 Barrel Pale Ale appeals best to me + red is the strongest selling color, so yeah, I would prefer red (with some cream). Second best for me is blue. The absolutely best thing that you could do, would be designing a logo that looks good in any color (and I feel like the 5 Barrel Pale Ale does that).
I want the logo to be kinda retro/vintage and maybe a little bit rustic. From the start I'm going to be using it on panels, windows, t-shirts, flyers, webpage and maybe on my beer glasses.
If you have any questions, please ask!
Thank you for all of your inputs guys, looking forward to your creations!
