This is my 100th post. When I started this blog three months ago, I had modest ambitions. I just wanted to learn more about good beer—and dominate all forms of media, Oprah-style.
If you actively troll beer blogs, you may have noticed that several other blogs use the same frothy beer mug background photo. It's a free Blogger background template that seems appropriate for our content. I thought about changing it, but have become quite fond of it. So it's staying. However, it's time for this blog to get a proper logo.
Jeff, a good buddy of mine from St. Louis, owns a graphic and web design firm called TriFecta Creative. Although he lives in the land of Budweiser, Jeff appreciates good craft beer and was kind enough to support the cause by designing a few logo options for my blog. He's doing this even though I made a not so subtle jab about the beer at his wedding in my very first post. What a guy!
Since all seven of you (maybe we're up to eight now) will be seeing the new logo on a regular basis, I'd like to get your input. Here are the three options:
What do you think? I think they're great and would be thrilled to use any of them. But I do have a preference. Which do you like best? I'd really appreciate your feedback! These are drafts, so we can mix and match some design elements. If you don't feel like commenting, please vote in the poll. There's a voting box on the top right of my site. I'll keep the vote open for a week.
If you're in the market for logo or web design services, check out TriFecta's website or Facebook page, and contact Jeff if you have questions. They do excellent work!
