The Lightning Whelk, the state seashell of Texas is in our logo and will likely be placed on top of our tap handles for brand identification. We would like a graphical of the whelk, could be simple sketch could be detail we are open to any ideas on anything.
Words "Galveston", and "Island Brewing". emphsising galveston and island brewing. Any use of iron work from galveston could be used as well (attached red one is one example for a bar we have connection with.) Galveston is the oleander city but dont want to bring it to girly or beachy cliche. Important to remember its a brewery. we are making great local beer.
galveston is known for its beaches, mardi gras, and a destination for many houstonians but also a strong local culture.
we just had the idea of (trying) placing a graphical of a conical fermenter with the shell on the side of the conical.
if one was creative enough they could integrate the outline of the geographical picture of the island into the words or something else, just a thought.
UPDATE 2 days remaining: you can see the works I gave high ratings to, but please, for new entrants I encourage not doing a variation of the works I liked the most but submitting original works. I am going to select a few of my favorite styles and do a poll with my friends and family with which style they liked the most. Example: if everyone does a variation of the fermenter logo I am ONLY PICKING ONE OR TWO designers of that style, then the other 2 I choose for final round will be very different directions. My friends/family will help me choose which direction to go.
The name can be in a pictorial shape but I do not want round, try more of a unique shape.
Dont forget we are an island, a beachtown, an easy going relaxing place and the brewery is only about a 600 feet from the ocean.
