Default Boilermaker Brewing Co

Just starting and getting some first round sketches. We don't always do first round sketches but it helps me figure out what the soon to be owner wants.

So this is for NinjaJoe - aka-Boilermaker brewing co.
Design – An anvil or boilermaker like purdue, then thought how about a Pig Boilermaker?

So the first concept was too much of a cartoon and he wanted something more realistic, which is going to take me a bit longer since cartoons are easier to draw then a more life like image.


So my second concept was based just on the anvil.Then I added the hammer and why it looks like the handle is kinda invisible. lol

Nice. How would the type work with the imagery?

There are alot of ways to incorporate the text.. so to go into detail wouldn't really be needed.. But stick around and you'll probably see us play with the text..

Yeah, as long as you're not a professional, the anvil is nice. Alesmith might take exception to someone else using the anvil as a brewery.

Even if they were starting a company (they aren't) This anvil would be just fine to use. since it's completely different than Alesmiths logo.. A company usually tradmarks their image not the concept, like an anvil..

Yeah, lets go with the anvil. The pig boilermaker can be a label idea for the future.
