My name is Cory, and I spent 10 years on active duty in the Marine Corps as a helicopter pilot, and am now in the Marine Corps reserve still flying the same helicopter. The helicopter I fly (the CH-46E) is nicknamed the "Phrog" or "Battle Phrog". That was the inspiration for the name of my homebrewery. I love flying the Phrog, and the community of people in the squadron. It's a 40 year old aircraft, but she's never let me down. I've got ideas in my head of what I want my logo to look like, but can't draw a darn thing.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Beer snobs, fellow web forum junkies, family and friends. I'm hoping to eventually start a microbrewery/brewpub so the audience would expand at that point.
The idea I have for my logo would be a cartoon frog wearing Marine desert digital cammies, helmet and carrying a rifle with a burning cigar hanging out of his mouth (think dirty, grungy, combat-weary Marine that is also a frog). Behind him would be a CH-46E approaching to land (I've included a picture of what that looks like). I don't really have any ideas for font, placement or style of the brewery name - but I definitely want that included in the logo. I also don't have a tag line - so feel free to throw one in that you might think appropriate. Other than the graphic idea listed above, I'd love to see your creativity! If you think you can come up with a design that involves Frogs, Helicopters & Beer that doesn't include what I envision above - I'd love to see it! Maybe your idea is better than mine!!
