We are a microbrewery from Romania and we will produce craft beer inspired by Belgian beers, in small batches, with quality ingredients and Belgian yeast.
Oriel name comes from Uriel, the archangel of light, and his symbol is the fire in palm. The target audience will be all the craft beer drinkers and connoisseurs (especially the Belgian beer lovers).
The main motif in the logo should be the symbol, or a symbol created by you, similar to the one attached. Oriel should be written big, while "beer" smaller. The shape of the logo could be a stained glass window, abbey door or any shape you think is suitable for it. Other details that may be included: barley, hops, chalice glass, other abbey symbols (except crosses). It should also include the text: "est. 2015".
The slogan is not a priority, but if you need to fill the logo, it can be added.
The logo should be at the balance between modern and classic and related to abbey/Trappist/monastery (the beers are abbey inspired).
It should be versatile enough to be used on the bottle labels, glassware, coasters, t-shirts, website etc.
We are looking for something a lot more professional than the mockup done by us (attached).
We would prefer the colors:
background: black, text and symbols: white , but gold can be used too.
The colors can be reversed too (lighter background, darker texts).
If you think adding some colors would advantage the design we prefer: blue or/and orange.
We would like a long-term collaboration with the designer, to help us also in the creation of the labels and other graphic designs (flyers, banners, website layout etc), and to help us establish our brand identity.
