The local homebrew club needed a new logo (I don’t actually recall if they had one to begin with) and hit me up since, at the time, I worked for a brewery and and was therefore somewhat “in the scene”. As I agreed to do this for them in trade for beer, they gave me a lot of freedom with the design. We agreed that something illustrative, with nods to vintage labeling and the Pacific Northwest beer scene. They also wanted it to be easily printable on swag such as shirts and glasses, so a single-color version was needed.
