We wanted additional naming options to consider from an experienced external expert, and BBG did a great job of providing strategic and thoughtful solutions. I especially appreciated the timeliness and professionalism.
- Ben Hafele, Lean Innovation Manager
BBG guided us expertly through the entire process (at times it felt like they knew more about what we needed than we did, which I am grateful for!), and I appreciated the helpful structure they provided to help our group articulate our vision along the way - that felt above and beyond what I would ordinarily expect from a creative process.
- Madeline Vitek, Associate Director
Working with BBG was fantastic. I highly recommend them as a creative partner and look forward to our next engagement together.
- Greg Becker, CEO
Josh is a consummate professional, which is demonstrated in both his process and his work. He has an amazing ability to navigate the challenging waters of brand strategy, while faithfully guiding his clients through a deeper understanding of their core values, and how to best communicate those values through branding. Josh’s strategic process cuts through the morass and uncertainty of our client’s current brand strategies and replaces it with team cohesion, excitement, and confidence in the new direction.
It has been a pleasure to work with Josh and to see the results that he is able to produce with our craft brewery clients.

- Limbert Fabian, Creative Director at Moonbot Studios
Working with BBG is a breeze. They are very prompt and helpful answering all of our questions via email and telephone. The team always gives thorough explanations and will walk you through steps if needed. BBG helped us create a beautiful new website for our company and we are so appreciative of that. We have enjoyed working with them very much and would recommend him to anyone.
- Angela Ling, President
From the beginning of our project, Josh... provided actionable input to our ideas and was critical to our logo, label, and packaging design... Josh was able to quickly provide us with a beautiful canvas of detailed sketches to review. His input and logic-driven approach helped us decide on a beautiful logo and brand design that we would have never been able to arrive at on our own. We highly recommend working with Josh...”
- Taylor, Jack & Jorge - Founders
Serendipity led my path to cross with Josh’s several years ago. His creative gifts, wrapped in his warm and generous spirit, compel me to ensure that our paths continue to intersect. We worked together on an innovative business plan for the better part of six months and I continue to be amazed at his ability to understand, enhance, visualize, create, and extend ideas. I would jump at the opportunity to work directly with Joshua Berman again and consider it an honor to have him as an active member of my network.
- Heather Hollick, Coach & Leadership Developer
Black Abbey Brewing
I worked with Joshua Berman when he led the design effort for our can designs for our first foray into packaged beer. Joshua exceeded our expectations... Through a collaborative effort we were able to narrow down the choices and come to an end product that we felt represented our brand better than we could have imagined. Joshua was a consumate professional during this process and brought new ideas to the table that made the process a success. I would gladly work with Mr. Berman again and strongly recommend him for any product design job.
- John Owen, Founder & Brewmaster
King's Sandwich Shop
It’s easy for me to pen a few words of praise to BBG for their work on King’s Mobile... because our patrons and passers-by tell us - very frequently - how amazing we look. What began as a brand ID and logo re-design quickly morphed into a retail storefront design challenge and merchandising project that has taken off like gangbusters.
BBG was exactly the right fit for us, not just because Josh is an extremely talented creative. His consultative planning, ability to help us prioritize key needs, and marshaling urgent agency resources led us to impactful and highly effective solutions (typically under breakneck deadlines). I’m also grateful for Josh’s calm, thoughtful style and outstanding sense of humor, which collectively made for an invaluable partnership.
Josh is a killer creative with a keen business mind to boot, and I hope that he and I collaborate well into the future.
- T.J. McDermott, King's Sandwich Shop
Eurisko Beer Co.
Working with Josh was a journey from start to finish. Rather than jumping immediately into icon sketches and brand identity concepts, he spent several Skype meetings really trying to understand who we were as individuals and what vision we had for our business. By the time we had begun discussing design ideas, he was already deeply in tune with our vibe. Josh went above and beyond what we expected. Could not have asked for a better design process... we really could not be happier with our branding...
Seriously f#$%ing nailed it!
- Zac Harris, Partner
Oconee Brewing Co.
We were first introduced to Josh while working on a company logo with The Brandit. From the first time we spoke on the phone, it became evident that Josh was determined to learn about the local landscape and market that we aimed to appeal to. It felt as if he immediately became a part of our team, even using words like “we” and “our” in our conversations.
We were amazed with Josh’s professionalism and creative know-how from the first round of the creative process. He was able to envision our description of Georgia’s “lake country” and transform it into a classic, yet elegant logo. He has a keen eye for the future of the brand and makes suggestions based on the uses of the logo and the growth opportunity of the company. When our company ran into some trademarking issues and had to change the brewery name, Josh was our immediate go-to for help in navigating out of a stressful situation. Josh’s understanding of the storytelling potential of a logo guided us into a more illustrative direction that helps the consumer visualize the meaning behind our new name.
His experience and knowledge of the brewing industry in particular make him an invaluable partner and someone that we can really rely on as we continue to grow our brand. Josh created two top-notch logos for us and we would go to him for a hundred more!
- Taylor Lamm, Owner & Brewmaster
The Nakta Designs team absolutely loved working with BBG. Their insightful initial questions helped guide us to the right concepts to share, the process was very open and communicative, and their ability to iterate was so impressive. We walked away from our engagement with a beautiful logo that fits our brand perfectly, and we still get compliments about it years later! ”
- Mailande Moran, Owner & Founder
My search for someone who could really comprehend our creative requirement wouldn’t have come to an end without the help of Joshua Berman. From the very first introductory interaction to final stage, the whole methodology was very friendly and transparent which proved Joshua to be a tremendous help in order to achieve a remarkable imagery for our brand. Collaborating with him was so convenient and hassle free because of his extreme professional approach and being accommodating at the same time.
- Josh Goraya, Fashion Designer
Josh was instrumental in helping to establish our brand presence. Even before we were in operation, I knew we needed a strong image and brand to pair with the beer and direction I wanted the company to go. Over the course of many months I accumulated and sent a huge mass of materials, images, napkin thoughts, and emails to Josh and his team to wade through. The result was a concise catalog of branding that has helped to set us apart in a competitive industry that excels at creativity.
If we had a conceptual idea that we really pushed, even that wasn’t quite inline with the rest of our projects, Josh was able to persuade us to go in the “right” direction. I often work at subjects at 0 or 120 mph, and Josh is patient enough to reign me in to prevent me from making rash decisions, and that has helped keep our brand consistent and cohesive. We have continued to utilize Josh for all our creative streams from website development to POS materials and will into the unknown. Our two most common compliments are, “You guys have great beer” and “I love your logo!” So Josh is responsible for half of our praise.”

There really aren’t enough words to give Joshua Berman’s work justice. When I started working with Josh, I had a basic idea of the direction I wanted to head in with my re-branding, but Josh really honed in on my particular needs, and even foresaw how my brand would evolve over the years.
As a designer myself, I have very distinct likes and dislikes, but not necessarily the technical acumen to translate those preferences to the graphic design medium. Josh quickly figured out what made me tick, and the resulting logo and web design were 100% me. Josh managed to create a juxtaposition of romantic and modern styles, something that I wanted but couldn’t quite verbalize.
The website that Josh designed for me is an incredible platform to showcase my work, easy to navigate, and truly distinctive. I will sing his praises until the end of time, and recommend him to everyone I know!

BBG is a joy to work with. They are patient and thoughtful, while still honest and decisive. I trusted him to create… the three most important visual pieces for my company and he more than exceeded my expectations. I have received countless complements on the aesthetic and personality.
