Although we need a logo first, our priority is getting wine labels ready for printing. So, at some point showing me designs on a wine bottle may be helpful.
Our name, 40:31 Wines references a scripture verse, Isaiah 40:31. This verse reminded us to trust in God while we considered the purchasing our land and vineyard two years ago….and every day since, really. Buying the land catapulted us into the wine industry – of which we had zero experience. To date, we sell our grapes to top winemakers and are making our own wine. We are working hard, learning quickly and loving every second! :)
The verse references "on wings like eagles" and we are not opposed to wings in the design, but if used, it must be creative. That said, the logo does not have to show wings, perhaps an uplift motion or line (simple, Picasso-ish is one idea) that's completely imaginative and unique. Or, something else entirely. We prefer the 40:31 to be horizontal, not vertical. Vertically, causes confusion on pronunciation. We want it to be stated as Forty:Thirty One - not Four, Zero:Three One.
I see the numbers and colon as being large and bold with the word Wines underneath in much smaller letters. We are uncertain to colors at this point. Red always stands out, so that's a plus, but we want to see what you create for us. Lastly, a pattern in the background or a border around the logo are options also. Style types, I am more elegant/modern/artistic and my husband is playful/artistic/an outside of the box thinker. Not sure if that helps or confuses. We are open to your interpretations and creativity so feel free to surprise us!
Thank you all, in advance!
