Hop Addiction

Well, the designer disappeared during my contest, as soon as I wanted to select him. The mgt of DC really stepped up in getting the design done anyway, although it is not exactly like I wanted it. Overall, great job finishing.

Project description

UPDATE: 4/1/14: I want to get away from the "Addiction" in the branding and focus more on the "HOP". I am getting too much negative feedback and feel I'm alienating customers with the "hard core" addict stuff. Target audience is people who love Craft Beer. Sexiness, edgy, stylistic, technical, Breaking Bad. Einstein. Pulp Fiction. Another alternative is to use the hops creatively to replace something else from a well known photo or image... Use your imagination.

  • I can see, that this is too much for some of u, to create something by yourself. Only loosers are copying ideas.
  • Hello CH, just submitted #4, wanted to know what you thought of the design? Thanks!
  • Hi CH Please let me know if you have any feedback regarding #3 Thanks, K
  • Not really following this one. Is that a maple leaf? The addiction font is nice. Kind of softens the word which is good.
    • No, it's hop leaf. Wanted to associate with marijuana leaf.

  • The hops look good, but the logo is a bit too busy. Not enough realism or structure.
    • See #22. Sadly last one can add in this contest and could be on the completely wrong track lol! I do have a copy with the capsule unbroken, same font. Any feedback very much appreciated (just started with vector graphics). Thanks.

  • Anyone going for the pill bottle look needs to make it look much more real. Like this: http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&docid=9NQtHMFft3Ou5M&tbnid=-cwKlZJ0Fd518M:&ved=0CAUQjRw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.myhousecallmd.com%2Fexpiration-dates-an-evil-ploy-for-your-money%2F&ei=6lU6U8DTIYbcyQHLx4BQ&bvm=bv.63934634,d.aWc&psig=AFQjCNFsZk23A8fJGrIbRsVfp9SLpTLrjA&ust=1396418260955427
  • Hello CH, what do you think about #16? Used the feedback you given me to come up with this design. Thanks!
  • Clean, but the images need to be much better.
  • How about an all white hop, with a bite taken out of it, just like the Apple logo...
  • Not really feeling it. I want the hop to look real.
  • This is actually a really cool design. Maybe play around with the shapes. Try the bio-hazard image on a big hop? http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&docid=posCA-H132SbGM&tbnid=izxKjHVb9UVArM:&ved=0CAUQjRw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.screenrs.com%2Fwallpaper%2F7710-biohazard-symbol-wallpaper.html&ei=8Cs6U7GCDYmMyQG19IGYDg&bvm=bv.63934634,d.aWc&psig=AFQjCNE0JQ352WqRFGfYGfvI_OEAirwdUw&ust=1396406687715293
  • The hops look really good, but there is something not right about the symmetry.
  • This is a clean look and i like it. I think the pill bottle really would work for this if you made it the "O", similar to the example design.
  • I like the lettering on the word hop. The syringe doesn't really do it for me in this context. I think I prefer the pill bottle being the O. Just looking for ideas on how to clean it up.
  • The hop head idea is pretty cool. I don't think it really works for me as a logo, but i like the hop head idea.
  • Check out the image I just posted titled "Lets Cook". I want someone to do a hop replacing the center of the mask, but with the hat and gas mask and glasses all still visible...
  • Dear CH, Please have a look at my design #25. Thanks
  • This is clean. The hops need a little work though. Need to look more real and needs to be more of them. Look at the image I will post titled "Beer-Hops". That may be your image. Also, work on the H and the P so that they have something in common with the O made by the bottle. Lastly, maybe if you could see a little bit of a label on the pill bottle.
  • This one made me LOL. It's really cool, but I think it may just be over the top with the band around her arm... haha. Very cool though. Keep playing with it.
  • Hi CH, I submitted entries #23 and #24. Feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!
