We want a simple, sophisticated logo that reflects something warm, earthy, organic. Wood, fire, copper and other rustic elements play a role in the design and the food. The space, food, and food presentation are all sophisticated and modern, however, without being pretentious or cold.
While būccan is an original concept in its own right, in many ways it captures successful elements of other concepts around the globe. Some influential examples include Lupa in NYC, Fore Street in Portland, ME, Bonfire in Boston, MA and Oak Door in Tokyo. Būccan is bringing a cold-weather concept to a warm-weather locale.
Factoids: A buccan is a native South American and Caribbean name for a wooden framework or hurdle on which meat was roasted or smoked over a fire, similar to the original meaning of a barbecue. The French changed this to boucan and called the French hunters who used these frames to cook and on the island of Hispaniola boucaniers. Additionally, a boucan is a naturally burning bed of surface coal. Certain exposed seams of coal can catch fire due to lightning or a forest fire and then smolder for decades, perhaps for centuries.
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo. We do not want anything silly or related to the pirate term "buccaneer." The restaurant name is būccan (pronounced boo-cahn). We'd like the marcon used over the "u."
