Ditty was a delight to work with. She was fast, responsive, and very receptive to my ideas. I appreciated her patience whilst I experimented with a few ideas, each giving me the opportunity to become clearer on what I was after. I had chosen Ditty because I loved some of the work she'd done, and especially her DAYA logo, so I opted to choose her straight away for the project, rather than opening it up to other designers. I was after something with a similar look and feel to DAYA, however I wanted the logo to incorporate Infinity signs, plus the Tree of Life, plus magical colours, a mandala-like feel, and all of that inside of an oil droplet (because my business is essential oils). That's quite an ask, and Ditty did a beautiful job. I'll very happily use her on other projects.
How Michael Salmon started their logo design journey
Hartstone Inn & Hideaway
We are a 21 room Inn/Boutique Hotel with a gourmet restaurant that has been in business for 12 years. We are located in Camden, Maine on the scenic Maine coastline. Our restaurant does not have a separate name from the Inn, which is part of our challenge with designing a logo.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Sophisticated travelers interested in fine cuisine and a "foodie experience."
The Inn is a foodie destination with gourmet dining, cooking classes and other foodie events, so we would like this to reflect in the logo. This is what stands us apart from our competition. The Inn has a French Country decor. We are currently using Balmoral font in our materials for the name.
