We would like similar shapes and colors shown in the pictures. You can be as funky and creative as you want, but it must represent the cool side of 80's America. It must be childish/fun and memorable, and the brand must be instantly recognizable. Feel free to use symbols as words and incorporate shapes into the logo as seen in the pictures. You can also blend shapes and styles from the 1950's and 1960's, but the final logo must come together to be a symbol of 1980's America. Think loud colors, big hair, the fashion, the gadgets, the music, the trends and so on. The logo must epitomize the 80's.
Our slogan: "Cooler than a Popsicle" is a figure of speech. In other words, our brand is a symbolism for coolness, time-travel and the 80s.
Perhaps you can also incorporate a time travel theme into the logo, because we will have a Delorean from Back to the Future 2 on-site, something which we might incorporate into our marketing strategy.
We've also attached our prototype logo we had for reference purposes.
Please see pictures to get some inspirational ideas.
All the best,
