Update on EXTENDED Contest
We have several entries we like so far that are in the lead for an award. But, we want to provide more time to see if we can get closer to our vision. The good news: this guarantees an award.
The house is the most important thematic element. Our recommendation, regarding the house, is to render the house in the colors as shown in the EPSON130 JPG file in the uploads. Look at the picture in the lower left corner and notice the gray/silver of the tin roof, white of the house, and red trim along the base of the house. We like the angle of the house based on the picture in the upper right corner where you see folks standing in the yard. But, be creative, just know that the porch is where all the storytelling happened. You do not need to include the people, the trees or the bushes. If you do and it works, that's great. The white picket fence might be a nice touch if it were included.
We only received a few submissions in the style we recommended in the original project description. I have taken a screenshot from that link and placed as a file called ARC.png. We would like to see efforts closer to that style with both the name and the house incorporated.
Thanks to all, looking forward to working with you soon,
Storytellers Brewery and Meet House
We are a small nano-brewery in Corona, CA called Storytellers Brewery and Meet House: [login to view URL]
We are looking for a logo that incorporates several thematic elements and which leverages what I would describe as an ornamental font style. You can find examples of some of the font styles we like at:

In particular, we are a fan of this one:

We are not looking for a replica and are open to other styles.
In our logo, you must incorporate a rendering of the house from which we derive our name. Our grandfather ran a self-sufficient farm in the foothills of the Appalachians often referred to as The Meeting House. Built in the early 1900s, it was a popular gather point for folks that lived or passed through the area. Many folks gathered on its porch to relax, share a drink, and swap stories and news of the day. Sort of a physical chatroom of its time.
Also, we would like to include among the ornaments and flourishes, subtle clues to the states in the USA from which each of the owners have lived and that make up their story.
These flourishes could be state birds, flags, flowers, trees, whatever. The states are: South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Texas, and now, California.
I have attached a few pics of the old Meeting House. The house is no longer, and was torn down years ago. So, it lives on through the theme of our brewery.
This logo will be used on T-shirts, hats, window signage via large sticker application and other placards and banners in the future.
This initial contest is to find something we feel le can work with. After that, we are likely to engage the winner(s) in a project to refine the logo.
“Brilliant work! One of the easiest contract arrangements I have had. Coming from the software world prior to opening this brewery, that is saying a lot. I have sub-contracted many folks in my career and this was one of the easiest and with a beautiful result. Our logo is closer to our vision than I thought possible. I will be reaching out to Agustina in the future as our brewery needs artwork for other projects, beer labels, etc. ”
