Best Place to Get Branded: Neltner Small Batch

Camp Springs, Kentucky native Keith Neltner cut his teeth at local agencies and quickly became a force to be reckoned with in the design and music worlds, producing work for artists like Shooter Jennings and Hank Williams III. His Neltner Small Batch design group has produced branding and illustrations for some of our region’s favorite spots: Arnold’s Bar & Grill, Braxton Brewing Company, HalfCut, Herzog Music and Lucius Q. He’s created a mural for Cincinnati’s Brewery Trail, collaborated with ArtWorks and recently completed a graphic novel-inspired mural for the new Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center at Union Terminal. The work created by Neltner and his team is self-described as “unearthing a brand’s heart,” and if you fall in love with a certain design, there’s a chance it may be for sale on the Neltner website via a poster, T-shirt or print.
