This SpecHops existing logo, the "Eagle and Fouled Anchor" were taken directly from military emblems. They're in the open source world and we need something more unique to our brand.
We'd like to see some fresh ideas--a little out of the box that incorporate our name, but also convey Military, History, Beer, Special Ops, Mystery, Masculinity, and Courage. I'm not completely set on the Eagle and Anchor--other fresh logos would be suitable as long as they have a modern, clean feel and can stand alone, as well as with our words: "SpecHops Brewing Company" and our phrase "Unconventional Brewfare".
We are looking for a clean design that works well in a single color and single font--as well as one that incorporates SpecHops (one word, uppercase 'S' and 'H') with a military-type logo. We are especially interested in a modern logo that incorporates negative space to integrate both military themes and beer (beer glasses, hops, etc.). Our current logo--the eagle and anchor need to be updated and made more modern without directly copying the Marine Corps, Navy, Special Operations, or other existing military emblems. Lastly, any logo must be respectful and not based on "death" or "violence." Our business honors faithful service and patriotism.
We will award a design that is bold and can easily be scaled--so no fine lines-- and the print needs to be bold and easy to read as well. Think "military unit patch" that someone would have embroidered on a hat or uniform.
Thank you for your hard work and participation in our project!
