Big Grove Brewery Logomark
Posted 5 years ago and submitted by Steven Noble | Share link:

Big Grove Brewery needed to update and improve the quality of the brewery’s brand image. Graham Spencer contacted Steven Noble to come up with a unique and creative way to combine elements of both hops with an oak tree, and include a half acorn-half hop logo mark. The end results were original and conceptual illustrations never visualized before for an identity.

Client Background:
Solon, Iowa, is a tiny bedroom community just outside Iowa City. It is home to one of the finest small craft brewery/restaurants in the United State: Big Grove Brewery. In 2016, Big Grove executed a dramatic expansion into a 28,000 sq. ft property in Iowa City that features a 10X increase in brewing capacity to 10,000 bbl/yr (310,000 gallons).

Big Grove’s ultimate goal is to be a hub of activity, fun and hometown love in a newly redeveloping sector of the city they cherish; to continue to serve up great beer and food and to help preserve and protect Iowa’s natural spaces and local culture.
