Winning design #259 by Walawalakim, Logo Design for East End Hardware Contest
Gold Medal

designed by Walawalakim

Project description

We are converting a giant hardware store into a bar in an up-and-coming Houston neighborhood. The bar will technically be a private club (to avoid city restrictions). The atmosphere of the bar will be unpretentious, friendly, clean, and artsy. We will serve craft beer and simple food. There will be a stage for live music, a huge patio, bar games, and an off-leash dog run. We are incorporating vintage industrial fixtures into the decor, and playing off the hardware theme in a minimalist, artistic way. We are building light fixtures out of plumbing flanges and purse-hooks out of giant screws. There will be a few gallery walls of eclectic art (from our personal collections) and we will feature artwork from local Houston artists. Additional design opportunities will be available to the winner (menus, murals, t-shirts, etc). 


Thank you for helping us!

  • My friend suggested making the small circle look like a bottle cap (very similar to a gear) . Everyone loves your designs! #259
    • Yes, I deliberately made to resemble a circle of the gear, I had thought it would be more in keeping with the theme of your company name "HARDWARE". But if a small circle in the design of # 259 is to be made such as bottle caps, I will try ..About #259, @themartingalebar

    • @themartingalebar This will be our winning design. Can you make more changes? On the logo with 2 circles, can the small circle be a bottle cap and the big circle be a gear?

  • Please check my design
    Thanks #420
  • Logo with new colors #415
  • E-E logo preview #403
  • E-E logo #402
  • Here are different variations of #5 as requested. Thanks. #401
  • Can you put a space between "east" and "end"? #215
    • @themartingalebar Hi just uploaded entry #400 for your feedback thanks..

  • Hi. Look new design #389, @splayd
  • please check#384, #381, i hope you like it.......
  • I really like the circle part. #311
  • This is really beautiful. #340
  • I love this design. Can you put the EEH in a circle? It does not need to say the name of the bar. #5
  • I love this. Could you do a pint glass with the gear? #320
  • #260 (the design on the bottom)

    In the small circle only, can you put "craft beer and simple food"? The two circles will be different.

    Can I see the EE in a different font?

    This is our top design. Thank you so much for your time, effort, and ideas!

    If you think of any other revisions, we would love to see them.

    Thank you!

    • Hi,

      I apologize for the slow response. I made some design "EE" and the placement of "Craft Beer and Simple Food" as an option. Hope you like it. Thank you for your patience and I've liked the design. Thank you very much :). About #260, @themartingalebar

    • @Walawalakim Thank you! I posted some pictures with some ideas. I really love your work. Thank you!

    • @Walawalakim I like the first EE, but can you put a small, subtle H in the middle of them?

  • Hi,

    I apologize for the slow response. I made some design "EE" and the placement of "Craft Beer and Simple Food" as an option. Hope you like it. Thank you for your patience and I've liked the design. Thank you very much :). About #260, @themartingalebar
  • Here are a couple variations on a directional theme. I have not seen any designs taking advantage of the direction in the name so I tried to use that in the design. Would love any feedback you might have #364
  • Hi! Let me know your thoughts :) #356
  • Hi, I am sorry for the slow response. Yes of course, about the changes you requested I will soon do so, and of course you will get all the design...
  • Love this! Thank you for your time and effort!

    Instead of "Craft Beer and Simple Food," can you put "Ice House"? #196
    • Thank you for feedback. Thanks also had liked my design. I had to fix the design, I'm not sure what your point is, what coupled with "ICE HOUSE" or replaced with "ICE HOUSE", so I made both. Hopefully, in accordance with what you want. Thank You :) About #196, @themartingalebar

    • @Walawalakim Would you be able to do this? And would we get all of your designs?
