Seattle-based boutique design agency Mint, which earlier took on the creation of the Monx Belgian Beer brand, has now followed that up with branding work for Hilliard's Brewery. In the words of Mint, "A new artisanal brewery opening in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood warranted a sleek contemporary twist on the vernacular of beer culture. A fresh application of a crisp herringbone pattern balances cleanly executed typography, channeling traditional European blackletter in a contemporary way."
The wordmark for this craft brewer draws from the classic American beer vernacular.
