I realized though I share a lot of completed work, I rarely share the process, and though this logo was completed several months ago, I thought it would be a good one to start with. 19th & Mercer is one of the more beautiful pieces of architecture I've branded, it's a high end building, very Northwest modern design, and they wanted a brand that felt simple yet sophisticated. They ended up choosing #1, which I was quite happy about, but I did think there were some other nice options. It was decided the font was slightly too playful on #2, but it's still one of my favorites.

I'm quite late on the game with this one, as I've seen bits and pieces of this lovely store floating around the interwebs for a while, but whatever. The first thing that caught my eye in this shop was the trivet. I feel like an adult having trivets around, as it constitutes that I have a nice enough surfaces that I must protect, which is ironic because at the moment I really don't. Our countertops are going to be ripped out, and our dining room table is a Value Village find. BUT someday, we will have beautiful handmade butcher block countertops, and a real life dining room table. One day.

But back to the trivet, am I getting a little overboard with the geometry in our house? Probably, but I don't care, because I don't think clean lines ever go out of style. Will has yet to put the kaibash on any of it, though he did call me latest creation a 'hipster dream catcher' but that's kinda fair. ANYWAY, marble is starting to really grow on me, particularly in small doses, as has brass and copper, so as you can imagine, there is a lot to love in this little shop. I mean that's got to be the prettiest little bottle opener, right? Oh and a triangle cutting board? Sold.

I just realized I've yet to share an awesome new project, Two Beers Brewing recently launched their single hop, single farm series, and as it's a specialty beer we got to go a bit outside the brand and create something really modern and fun. The beer is also awesome, it's hands down one of the smoothest IPA's I've had, I highly recommend it. Not sure when it'll be in stores but it's available in their tasting room, The Woods.
