Want to help The Maine House select a logo? The locally focused craft beer and cocktail lounge, opened in July 2014 by mother/daughter team Coby and Deanna Thibeau to the delight of Hallowell residents, began soliciting entries in a logo contest last November:
Today marks our 4th month of being in business and we still don't have a logo! Because this venture has been a true labor of love and family we've decided that we will now call upon all of you to help us out! Design The Maine House logo contest is officially underway starting today, we will be accepting submissions until December 27th and will reveal the winner at a logo launch party on January 3rd. The winning submission will not only have bragging rights but also receive 2 free beers* a week for the entire year of 2015, free merchandise displaying the logo and a locally sourced gift basket. Keep in mind that your design will potentially be displayed on coasters, t-shirts, glassware, stickers, etc.
The official January 3 reveal was pushed back as the business didn't announce four semi-finalists until January 12. A panel then selected two finalists, who had a chance to fine-tune their submissions and create glassware mock-ups. Now fans will choose a winner: the design that receives the most "likes" on Facebook by 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 4 will become The Maine House's official logo. It's been a long campaign trail; time to go have your say in direct democracy.
