When he approached us to have a look at the logo ideas they had come up with, we kindly obliged as any good graphic designing neighbour would. A few beer meetings and a late night design session later, the birth of the logo had finally arrived. It's simple, iconic and easy to brand the boards with. Note the texture on the logo, unlike some we always choose to go for the handmade approach - the texture was created from designing, then printing several logo's out and using sandpaper until we had achieved the desired effect.
Now back to the title of the post… happily looking at the logo gratis has allowed us the opportunity to further work with Andrew and his brilliantly minded business partner Cobus. We'll be designing the swing tags with product description info for the various product range as well as a collectable poster in the very near future.
And a very big plus is that they will be at the Blue Bird Garage market this Friday/tomorrow in Muizenberg. They'll have a good selection of their boards on display and ready to take your custom orders. Be sure to swing by, you won't be disappointed!
Below is a selection of our proposed ideas and the final tweaks made to the selected logo.
fermented baltic herring, lingonberry jam, Salmon trout, new potatoes and herring, rye cracker bread, black pudding, household cheese and yellow pea soup... Or some where the name is just right, like 'Mellan Mjölk' the Swedish 'in between' milk.
Having only spent 7 months here in Cape Town, this to us, is a fantastic show to watch. We saw two whales playing only 150m out, near Kalk Bay. There were quite a few people standing watching, and even cars stopping, so maybe this amazement never wears off, how ever long you live here.
Casa Labia called us up on Wednesday looking for a poster design to go up at the Blue Bird Garage Friday Market - this Friday - TODAY! They have a range of cool shizzel happening over the next few months and want people to know about it. Personally, we're super keen on the movie nights, but there's something for everyone.
Several conversations to various printers and a very late Wednesday evening later, we had the printed artwork delivered to them this morning. It's a fun and approachable poster relying purely on typography and illustration to deliver the message. We printed A2 and A3's to go up inside the market and A4's to be placed on the tables. They'll be up all weekend long as the market is hosting a 'Barrel & Brew' beer & wine festival over Saturday and Sunday.
We'll definitely be doing some beer tasting this weekend, come and join us.
