I am so excited that we are getting a new brewery in Downtown West Monroe! I'm really not much of a beer drinker, but I do enjoy visiting breweries with my husband and friends. They are such good places for hanging out, having a drink, and relaxing in a comfortable and not too noisy environment. I also think that the artist in my just had a drive to support anyone who is making their own stuff and putting it out there, whether it be art, food, or drink.
Jennifer and Heath, the owners of Ouachita Brewing, are super nice folks and big supporters of art in our area. I was very happy when they contacted me about helping them to create a unique sign for their building. Since they were going for a rustic appeal for their overall branding, we created this sign out of old barn wood. This thing is huge and heavy at 8 feet square.
Unfortunately I cannot claim ownership of this very nice logo design, but it did take a lot of painstaking effort to hand paint it onto the old, rough boards. In retrospect, I should have taken step by step photos, but alas, I have not gotten into the habit capturing good blogging content as of yet.
I am very happy with the result and I am so stoked for this new company to get up and running in our community. I always try to support our local eateries, but now we will have local drinks as well!
