Contest Holder Name:  brewrivergastro

Company Name: BrewRiver GastroPub

Company Slogan: Right From The Beginning

Description and What We Do: We will be cooking food that is high quality, farm to table, with emphasis on local ingredients. We are located on the ohio river.

Top Three Things To Communicate Through Our Logo Design:

#1 that we are craft beer enthusiasts and our food is equal in quality to our beer

Our Target Audience:

We are located in a high end neighborhood on the Ohio River. We are surrounded by neighborhoods inhabited by college educated, food savy, wine and beer lovers. In general, the population surrounding us is hip, well travelled, into arts, music and enjoying life.

We've seen some exciting new directions and we'd like to see everyone put it in high gear for a strong finish.

If we've asked for revisions, please give us everything you've got. We would like to consider purchasing more than one design, so if you're not in first place now, show the effort and we'll see it.

Thank you to everyone who is working with us on this!

We are excited to see some full color logos entered as well. We are not married to 2 or 3 colors. We would love to see what can be done with more color. Thank You for all your amazing work!

A lot of the designs are being done in the same color of aqua. We would love to see some bolder colors, or maybe even some of the designs above recreated in some bolder colors. Thank You

We saw a font we liked at this address:

http://www.letterheadfonts.com/fonts/unlovable.php

We'd like to be more decorative with the direction overall. We love antique furniture with lots of carving and characters. Lion's heads, Monks, Cherubs, Griffins, and Grotesques as they are used in architectural applications.

The ideal logo will be artistic, creative, unique and clearly recognizable from a distance in terms of shape. We like family crests, shields, beer barrels, and perspective point river themes.

Looking forward to seeing things like this!

The following site is a great reference for the fonts we would like to see incorporated. Please take a look so we can move in the right direction from here.

The pictures above are things that inspire us, such as the cherubs with steins of beer, hops plants, or pieces that will be fixtures in our pub. We hope that this will help to inspire you as artists.

The designs above all have elements that we like. However, we would like to see our logo have an easily describable and identifiable shape. If our customer sees the logo from a distance they would be able to identify that the logo is BrewRiver's. We are open to characters being integrated, such as cherubs holding up the banner that says GastroPub. We would love to see a crest or shield, etc. Hopefully this helps

Beer Barrels, Beer Mugs, or Hops are other design ideas that could be incorporated.

After seeing the first few designs we have concluded that we would like our logo to be contained within a shield or design, i.e. a riverboat, etc. We want something that captures the brewing history of cincinnati along with our river history. Our location is on the ohio river and therefore it is part of our identity. We would like some playful colors, and any other design that could be included such as belgian monks, or cherubs with beer, or other brew related ideas. We are young and fun and yet respectful of our history and the city's brewing history. We know it is a juxtapostion, but hope that these comments will help.

The attached image is of an old early 20th century british pub sign that we are going to convert into our sign for the gastropub. Though it might be helpful to see it.

Welcome and Thank You for Choosing LogoContest.com!

Here are some helpful hints to make sure you get the most out of our site, and your contest.

 

1. Please rank your submissions or post general comments a minimum of 1 time per day while your contest is running. This is required should you want to request an extension to your contest and will produce the best results from our designers.

2. Once your contest receives 40 design concepts, your prize amount will become "Guaranteed".

3. Please make the most out of our messaging and comment systems.

a) Place general comments on this main contest page to give all of the designers your preferences and what you would like to see or not see.

b) Clicking on any designers submssion will bring up a page of all submissions by that designer with an option to post private comments pertaining only to his work. (Only the contest Holder and that designer can view and post to this page)

c) Clicking on the designer username under a submission will allow you to send a completely private message to that specific designer.

4. Please "Eliminate" only those logo designs that you feel have no chance of winning your contest. (Be aware that eliminating everything may discourage participation from the designers.)

5. Please rank the designs 1 to 10 and there are also options to rank Elements you like, Colors you like, and Fonts you like. This will help guide the designers toward the design that you are looking for. For the best variety of designs, try not to keep the same design ranked #1 for an extended time as this may result in copying of that design.

6. Once your contest ends and is in judging mode, any revisions to designs that you request from the designers can be emailed to support AT(@) logocontest.com and we will enter them into your contest for you.

 

Discussion Guidelines:

1. Designers and Contest Holders please always be respectful of each other, we all have the same goal.

2. Please do not criticize any design publicly, these discussions should only be held in private.

3. Designers may not post any external links to any designs.

4. Please do not ask a contest holder to view your designs or discuss any other designs.

5. Designers can not discuss copied designs on the contest pages and may submit a Logo Dispute to the Admin only.

 

Our team at LogoContest.com as well as our designers will make sure you are 100% satisfied and want you to leave here with a design that you love!
