Life of a Dyspeptic describes himself as a Cultural Sojourner focused on food–particularly of the fermented variety. He is currently traveling around South America learning about coffee, pisco, wine, and more. This client wanted a logo that showed the importance of food as culture.
My client asked for a holy grail cocktail as the primary figure of the logo. He specifically wanted a little umbrella, lime wedge, and a straw. I had drawn many different iterations of a grail and decided that something recognizable outweighed a complex design. However, I was not proud with the smaller details such as the over-textured umbrella and lime wedge, and the oddly placed straw.
Refine, refine, refine.
To balance out the umbrella and straw details, there are little embellishments on the grail. We opted out of the lime wedge as it was getting crowded, and instead added a sunset behind to tie together the relationship between food, culture, and comfort.
