We are pleased to announce that the design work of Oxide has been selected for inclusion in Communication Arts’ Design Annual 57. The logo we designed for Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild is featured on page 112 of the September/October 2016 issue, and in the online gallery of winners. This marks our sixth time winning CA, and Oxide is this year’s only honoree from anywhere in Nebraska or Iowa.
Based on entries selected out of the total number of entries received, the CA Design Annual is the most exclusive major design competition in the world. As a studio, we don’t enter many design competitions any more, but we still believe it’s one of our industry’s highest honors to win CA.
Here’s the brief explanation of the logo as provided to Communication Arts:
Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild fosters a well-informed and enthusiastic community of craft brewers. This new identity celebrates the guild’s region and its creations.
You can read more about our process and the thinking behind the design on our Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild logo post.
