Draft & Draw Coaster
Let’s face it: I’m a sucker for logos with dual symbolism. This one caught my eye as I browsed. It is a promotional coaster for an event called Draft & Draw, where people can go to drink beer, eat pizza, and draw. It is hosted by an artist who has worked with companies such as pixar, and is a very low key yet weirdly attractive event.
Regardless of the event, I love this design. It’s simple and symmetrical, both of which attract my attention. The focal icon is a number two pencil that is shaped and colored like a beer stein, head and all. All the necessary information is presented, and the layout is just so clean. It all works really well together, especially considering the medium. Printing this on a coaster was brilliant, since half of the event revolves around beer. I applaud the designer for his cleverness.
