For this logo I wanted to create something as personal as Joe, so I decided to hand-letter his name, as if he had done it himself. I also created an illustration that captures a moment in every tap room that Joe longs for and enjoys, the cheers. Together these elements convey a personal uniqueness that Joe needs to accomplish since he medium is blogging. The color choices are based off of Joe's favorite brews and help to give a worn and established look to the logo, as Joe is experienced in his craft.
