We are looking for a logo which is fun and energetic, but smart and stylish.
We prefer strong, distinct colors. We are open to creative suggestions as well as more literal translations (monkey in lotus position or yoga pose). The point we are driving is that our food is PERFECTLY BALANCED and we would like some hint to it in the company graphics. We are looking for a 2-D design. Stylish, simple lines preferred to cartoon images, but not ruling anything out!
At the end of the contest, we will require the winning designer to provide the following files in the handover phase:
1. unlocked vector file
2. unlocked .eps file
3. unlocked .ai file
4. large .jpeg file
5. Font names and file location(s)
Once the logo is chosen, there will be lots of package design work, cart design work, napkin design, etc. We would prefer to work with the same designer for more projects in the weeks following.
Be as creative as you want, we want to be wow'ed! And feel free to pepper us with questions, we want to be as involved as you want us to be.
