SBP logo

A long time ago (April 5, 2005) we posted this in our newsletter:

Possible logo
Ok, so we don’t have a logo, have never really felt the need for a logo, have rejected a couple of ideas, and laughed when we were told we’d disappear without one. We’re still here, right? You can see this? Is there anyo

Okay, so (reprise). Here’s the gig: make us a pretty Small Beer Press logo and we’ll hide it, ah, put it up somewhere on our site, put up a poll to see who likes
which one, and maybe at some point even use one. If we do use it we’ll pay you something (you like chocolate, right?). If we don’t, well, you had fun, right?

Below are a few of the logos sent in ages ago and never posted, sorry folks! Rich Stoehr, Brian Worley (#’s 2+3), and Beth Adele Long, are the artists. All of them captured something of the spirit of the concept: tasty comestibles are us. Thanks again everyone who took part.

    I like the last one best — it’s the most striking, would look better on any background and great on T-shirts!

    I don’t like any of the above logos, they look like clip art. SBP is a special press, the home of “The Mount”, “Trash Sex Magic”, etc. You should have a logo that is as odd and beautiful as the books you publish. It could be time to look for a good freelance graphic artist.

    I agree with Gwenda, the last one. And for the same reasons, most striking, very bold, elegant and simple, great on a t-shirt. Also it seems very flexible, like it would look great on anything and it is immediately recognizable.

    see you new years!

    […] Small Beer Press posts some possible logos, for your consideration. (via Gwenda) […]
