Pendulum worked to identify ways in which a redesigned logo could better communicate the business’s mission statement and purpose. First, we pulled together some beer logos to get a sense of the craft brewery landscape. From there, we found a way to combine a few common beer themes with local elements to maintain a sense of provenance.
From our research, something bold, clean, and assertive emerged. Our solution was to create a seal around the iconic shape of Lake Tahoe and draw inspiration from the surrounding environment for the brand colors. We created a logo system that provides some character and flexibility while providing a familiarity of California’s well known public lands.
“Let us be your guide”
Using the “beer guide” concept, we created a badge that mimics a common trail marker shape—a nod to the Tahoe Rim Trail—to add an adventurous and exploratory element to the system.
Window decals were created to designate breweries that are participating in the tours—a cheap, yet effective marketing tool.
