Beer

Less a business than an idea, Beer was the codeword a group of creative types used to signal when it was time to discuss or work on freelance projects. Once the idea was well established, it grew to the point of needing an identity. Because it required working during free time, simplicity was key as was conveying a sense of beer’s effect on one’s mental state, namely enhanced creativity!

Color is a beer-like gold, and the type a mix of fonts representing creativity and, of course, inevitable inebriation.
