We desire that the logo be fresh, crisp and classy. We want a stylish vintage farm/retro 50's kitchen look. Elegant but fun. Fun but elegant.
One idea we like is that of a crate/wood fence, distressed print/paint feel. (But please don't feel limited to this. We're open to ideas, as long as they follow the basic guidelines we're giving.)
Something important to keep in mind is that we do not want a particular animal, plant or product to be the one central theme, since we are actively expanding the products our farm offers. (Don't want to box ourselves in.) If you do include some of our products in your logo (chickens or a beehive, etc.), they should be peripheral and not iconic.
Words that describe what we're after:
- Vintage/Retro Country! (40s, mostly 50s)
Specific things to NOT include:
- No barn
- No silo
- No tractor
- No farm trucks
- No photographs
- No stock images or clipart
- No fat, curly 70's fonts
- No cutesie animals or silly cartoons
Color is great! Think of 50s color schemes. We also like combos of blue, green and earth tones.
Must be vintage fonts. We like masculine vintage fonts or cursive, forward-slant retro fonts.
Fonts MUST be easy to read and scale well as our logo will be used for everything from large banners and t-shirts to flyers and business cards. Components of design need to translate well to a website.
File Types Required:
Adobe Illustrator and all fonts used as TTF or Mac compatible.
