I am returning to home brewing after a long time off with kids. I am converting from college stove top to a all grain setup. It is has been great lurking here for ideas in restarting.

It seems like there may be a few underemployed designers out there. I would love to trade gift certificates for a logo for my brewery and bottle labels. I would like a label file that I can use as a template for each brew. I don't have enough creativity to come up with one, but can probably figure out enough of Inkscape to alter one.

I would like to call my brewery the Sleepy Fox Ale House (based on last name and a subtle dig at SWMBO) but am open to ideas. My nickname is unfortunately Buckethead, so that could be a possibility.

I prefer classic simple designs, earth tones, and want to be able to record when the beer was brewed and bottled to allow easy monitoring of conditioning.

I am an open minded Berkeley grad who loves different perspectives, so I will not be offended in any way. I welcome any and all input.

Any takers?

Thanks for your reply Matt. COY is working on a logo and what he has so far looks great. I appreciate your relying though.

Great prelim sketch Coy! I kind of like the rough look & the notebook paper is actually pretty cool; reminds me of Stick Figure Theatre. I think just cleaning up the text & keeping the notebook paper look would look great on a bottle or tap handle. Regards, GF.

Thanks

It should have this type of feel to it when done if Kfoxpt likes it.

I thought it was Sleepy Fox not 'Sleeping"??? I like Buckethead better for a brew name anyway. Sleepy Fox sound like a winery...

Here is the first draft to see what you think so far. after the logo is done we'll work it into a lable that can have the beer and other information added as needed.
