West Coast Cocktails: An Oral History Has a New Logo!

We are pleased to announce that our new project on West Coast cocktail history has a new logo. Jess Peterson and Emily Collins, who won our logo contest, have created our new design.

The logo contest was run in conjunction with our Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for oral history interviews with bartenders, bar owners, spirit distillers, and cocktail historians who have been key figures on the West Coast. For more information on the project, please visit the project website, listen to clips from our pilot interviews on SoundCloud, or watch clips on YouTube.

Congratulations, Jess and Emily!
