Tell me what you think
« on: July 23, 2015, 05:18:49 AM »
I've been working with a guy on Outsource.com to develop a logo for the possible brewery I may start when I retire in a few years.  Here is his nearly final effort:



I've incorporated and trademarked the name.  All the cheap stuff...

I think it looks nice. I can't wait to see it in color.

Looks awesome. As a Navy vet I am inclined to ask for a discount when production begins.

As a fellow Navy vet, I'll bet you'd drink for free

But, I don't think I'll be able to get going with it till I retire (7-8 years) so that I don't have to worry about income.

Make sure to hire enough strong, young backs.

That could actually be a legit concern. Shipyard as well, though Anchor would be your bigger problem because of location. I'd research the font and overall shape too - I remember seeing the logo shape before but can't remember where. It's a fairly generic shape though.

It would be a 300 dollar question, but I'd take a bunch of competitor examples to a lawyer specializing in trademarks/copyrights and see what he says.

Yeah, that is my next step.  I have the name trademarked, and I don't see how someone could trademark an anchor.  It would have to be identical in every respect.

Depends. From what I hear, Anchor has been successfully defending their anchor for years and years.

If the anchor is the main concern, have you considered maybe some other symbol? Like a ship's wheel or a compass?

Just a passing thought.
