Create a new "vintage" logo for the new owners of an iconic small town bar & grill
Check out mpacker314's Logo design contest…
Maybe but not necessarily: "Let the Good Tymes roll"
Food & Drink
Looking for a logo for an iconic small town dive bar in Dupo, Illinois. Dupo was historically a railroad town on the other side of the river from of St. Louis. The bar has been in operation on Main Street Dupo since the late 1800's ... For the last 28 years its been known as Good Tymes Saloon (or GTS to the locals). The bar is a multi-generational community bar. It is a bar that young, their parents and grandparents all go to and remember fondly as "home". It is the ultimate "Cheers" type bar where everyone knows your name and you feel "at home". We are the new owners of the bar and want to create a fresh image for this bar while still honoring its past. We want a "vintage" look to the logo similar to some of the contemporary "vintage" logos used for craft beers and craft whiskeys. We might want to separate the old Good Tymes from the new Good Tymes by calling it "Our Good Tymes" or the "New Good Tymes". We want to be a small bit "edgy" with the logo. We want to breath new life into this bar. We will make it more of a "sports bar" and have more things to do at the bar. The bar serves food (and is like a cafe for the community) - known for fried chicken and fried fish. But we are mainly a drinking establishment -- and the people of Dupo and surrounding small towns like to drink -- mainly beer and whiskey. We are have introduced more craft beers and whiskeys. Dupo is now a working-class town, with most commuting to St. Louis. It's still a railroad town and the trains go by our bar, but the railroad is not as important as it once was. A lot of our customers ride motorcycles (Harleys) but we are not a "biker bar" per se. The bar and town of Dupo sits 15 minutes from the "big city" of St. Louis but has a small town "feel" to it. The bar has become "old and tired" in the last few years and we are putting new life into it.I hope understanding more about the bar and its history and Dupo will help the designers develop the right "feel" for what the logo should be. UPDATE Many of the logo designs so.far are very good. BUT so far none have really hit what I'm looking for. Most of the designs are rather bland and look too much like an icon. We want something that is more original and creative in graphic content. We want the logo to have a FUN and a bit edgy or daring feel to it. We want someone seeing the logo to feel like Good Tymes will be a FUN place to party. We want the logo to attract younger potential customers (age 21-35) - we want them to get the feeling this is a NEW Good Tymes and not just their parents' tavern and that it's the FUN place to party.
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors: Let designers make suggestions: Dark neutrals: Formality, mystery, exclusivity and luxury. Reds: Energy, action, passion and love.
