No mistaking what services are offered at the establishment whose logo is my fourth Design Pick of the Week!
Even if you can’t make out the logo’s text on your smartphone screen, the beer pint you see here can’t represent anything other than a good ol’ boys brewpub. Throw in the antlers, and you know for sure that the Thirsty Moose Taphouse isn’t some fancy city bar!

We’re packing our bags for a great ski weekend in Vermont! Saturday is the Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge finals at Okemo Mountain Resort. Representatives from 11-year series presenter Chevrolet will be there, and from the other generous sponsors we’ve been working with this past year: D’Angelo, Frito-Lay, Irving Oil, Muscle Milk, Neuro, and Rockstar Energy Drink.
If you missed seeing the Infusion Studio-designed posters hanging in your local supermarket this winter and are wondering about the Challenge, let me fill you in.

For women business owners juggling work and family, the thought of kicking back with a cup of coffee and spending a free hour perusing some of the excellent business sites and blogs out there seems about as likely to happen as an afternoon at the day spa with your girlfriends. Who has the time?! The amount of material is overwhelming. It’s less stressful just to turn your back on it. Let those magazine subscriptions and e-newsletters pile up, and keep plugging away at the projects in front of you on your desk. But we all know you can’t grow your business without learning from others.
For the last few months, we’ve been trying to share one article a day with our colleagues and clients via Twitter (@InfusionStudio1). Just one article – often a blog post really. Something that will take mere minutes from your day to read. But that will keep you thinking for some time afterwards.

“Really elegant and mouth-watering” was what one team member said when viewing the home page for this week’s Design Pick. “Yum!” were the words of another. The logo for Dover-based catering company The White Apron is set against a full-screen close-up photo of asparagus on the website – as effective a design treatment as crisp white linen napkins against a rich green damask cloth. I hope you’ll click through to the company’s site to get the full effect when you finish reading my comments about the logo itself….

For my third Design Pick of the Week, I’ve selected the logo for Windblown Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing in New Ipswich. Owner Al Jenks purchased the land in 1963 for $15,000 borrowed from his grandfather. He was just 16 at the time, and pursuing his dream would have to wait for college and time in the Army Corps of Engineers. He opened for business in 1972.

I started the Design Pick of the Week last Monday – and everyone on the Infusion Studio team has been having a great time sending suggestions my way. Some are website banners, some are corporate logos, some are store signs seen while out running errands. But they all have one thing in common: They are all New Hampshire businesses.
And my pick for week two is the logo for what is truly an up-and-coming New Hampshire company, LaBelle Winery in Amherst.
