Urban Cactus Brewing Company

Business Brief

We are a large scale brewery producing craft ales that are sessionable and full flavored. We tend to make clean crisp beer to beat the unrelenting sun in the south west. We keg, can, and bottle our beers for distribution to restaurants, pubs, bars, liquor stores, convenience stores, and anywhere else craft beer is sold. We also have a one of a kind tasting room, where you can come experience your favorite beer, try something new, take a class and learn a bit more about the beer making process, or just sit out on the patio and enjoy our work with friends.

Ideas & concepts

Looking for something clean and modern. I picture a cactus silhouette, but then how to convey the urban part of it? Some sort of dense building skyline? Or is Urban Cactus an Arizona building that just looks like a cactus? The motivation beyond the name is to associate with Arizona from the use of cactus, but less of the 'wild west' that people may think of, and more city or metropolitan, hence urban. The tap room makes use of polished concrete, exposed metal beams, glass, exposed brick with splashes of color to keep it light and playful, but with an industrial feeling that you are in fact in a brewing facility where the beer is made.

i like the negative space to create the space of the logo
With Saint Archer the arrow and wings can be used on it's own and recognized, or like in this image the full 'proper' name is used. It's simple and clean.
another good use of negative space, could play well on a variety of colored backgrounds for each type of beer style we make.

These submissions so far are awesome! Thank to you everyone for participating so far. It looks like the use of a skyline with a cactus is a solid way to convey 'urban'.

The cactus can be pretty abstract in it's shape. With 'cactus' in the name, that leaves a lot of latitude to simplify the shape/design and still have it relate to a cactus.

It doesn't have to a traditional cactus shape either. Experiment, with different types, shapes, portions.

Looking for a logo that can be modularized for tap handles, cans, bottles, coasters, placemats, and more. So far the submissions are great, and I am super excited with work done so far. I'd like you to think about how to spice the logo up for a variety of applications and uses. Intertwining the name and the graphic might not be the best solution?

Think bright colorful palette. We're looking for something that stands out among the standard circular beer logos with their name in a wavy banner.
