Harvey Shepard

We first found out about Harvey Shepard through his wonderfully gorgeous book, Oh Beautiful Beer, which began as a blog dedicated to his love of beer and label design. When we researched the author, we discovered that he is an awesome design ninja at heart.

He hails from Massachusetts, but now resides in Seattle. He travels a lot and he mostly tweets about baseball, but Harvey’s designs focus on creating effective and memorable solutions. He specializes in logo design, branding, web and print design. With a rich arsenal of work including musicians, breweries, agencies, clubs and events, Mr. Shepard is sure to guide us to the promise land.

Q. In your opinion, what’s the best 6 pack under 6 bucks?

Miller High Life.

Q. Where’s the weirdest place you’ve ever seen your book?

Definitely here.

Q. What’s your favorite baseball movie?

I have stared at this perhaps more than any other question I’ve ever been asked. After much deep soul searching, I have to give A League of Their Own the nod over The Sandlot.

Q. Would you rather shovel snow or go to a Nickelback concert?

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s Nickelback and it isn’t close. I moved out of Massachusetts two years ago and I’ve hung up my snow shovel forever.

Q. What’s the best airport food?

Honestly, I put zero effort into airport food. I’m just scouting out the best beer in the airport and eating whatever that particular bar has to offer. Layovers can be an opportunity to scoop up beer you don’t normally have available to you, so it’s important to take advantage.
