We love pirates! Gasparilla festival... rum... swashbuckling... rum... cool costumes... rum... what's not to love! So we are branding the bar of our new house with a pirate theme.
The bar has a pool table, multiple TVs, a walk-out deck and, of course, a bar - featuring a large selection of high-end rums. Patrons will mostly be neighbors and a blend of adults and kids, but we prefer adult/classic pirates, not cartoons (think Jack Sparrow, not Jake and the Neverland Pirates). We also lean towards the villains and some of our stuff stretches towards steam punk. There will also be an adult dress-up closet full of Hollywood prop quality pirate gear. Yeah, we're a little obsessed :)
This is also a fairly high-end endeavor with a 19th century restored back bar and antique/collectable decorations. We want the logo to reflect that same sophistication (if you can call a pirate sophisticated).
We plan to put the logo on cups/glasses, coasters, and likely will incorporate it into artwork. That means we'd prefer the designs to not be too busy or hard to replicate in just a couple colors - or even monotone.
We included a slogan, but you do not have to incorporate it directly into the logo. We plan to use the logo both with and without the slogan, so it needs to stand alone as well.
We have obviously included a name for the barrrr, but we're open to other suggestions - that goes for the slogan too.
We are having a lot of fun with this project and want you to have fun with the logo too. Whimsical is great - just not cartoony.
Thanks for reading and looking forward to seeing your designs!
