New Logo for Private Bar/Lounge Coming to O’Fallon, Illinois

Posted on April 29, 2024

BEYOND is a private, members-only bar/lounge coming to the Blade Building’s 5th floor in O’Fallon, Illinois. The founder described the establishment as follows:

BEYOND isn’t just a haven for the finest cocktails, but a sanctuary where people gather to inspire and be inspired. Our Founding Fathers envisioned BEYOND as a place where people could shed the weight of everyday expectations and dare to dream bigger and reach further. And so, BEYOND lives up to its name, helping its members reach BEYOND their dreams, see BEYOND the possible, and believe in their wildest imagination. Pursue what seems impossible. Go BEYOND.

Here were our initial explorations which were heavily inspired by bourbon logos and labels:

…and here are the final logo lockups. The final logo was inspired by a barrel, but in an abstract/ambiguous way as bourbon, whiskey, and wine all use barrels to age and refine.

So I Had a Visual Lure Sign Made…

Visual Lure logo sign design

While recently scrolling through Instagram, I stumbled upon an incredible handcrafted wooden sign that immediately caught my attention. Its intricate details and carefully placed colors impressed me, compelling me to click the profile. Upon visiting, I discovered a huge selection of remarkable signs and was immediately convinced that I needed to have one made for myself. To my pleasant surprise, the cost was very affordable, and the level of craftsmanship was truly exceptional. The sign I requested was two feet wide and cost approximately $250.

The process was seamless and efficient. I provided my logo design in vector format, and within a day, I received a CAD drawing/rendering of the sign for my approval. Once I gave the green light, the sign was promptly created and shipped within 14 days. It now proudly hangs above my office computer.
