How Rickostergolf started their logo design journey
Oster Golf Houses
I create "purpose-built" vacation homes for groups of guys on golf trips with their buddies. The homes are upscale and loaded with amenities like; 4 master suites with two queen beds in each, plasma TV's, huge "great room", billiard room, fully equipped kitchen, large outdoor entertainment area with stainless steel grill and putting green! Beats the hell out of a hotel room! Everyone can hang out together and do what guys do, in a luxurious "home away from home". Check out http://www.BandonCottages.com for my first attempt at a website and logo. Show me how much better my image and logo can be!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Guys who travel with their buddies on trips to play golf. Most of my customers are male, 35 to 65 years old, upper income, managerial types. They like golf, wine, cigars, poker and probably hookers although I don't offer that!
I'm open to various interpretations. I sometimes get stuck on combining a golf symbol with a house symbol. In my mind that makes sense, but I'm open to other ideas. I like the power of the "O" in the name Oster. It makes me think of the hole or cup that you aim for, it is the shape of a golf club being swung and also the golf ball. I enjoy the green grass, trees and blue sky of golf, along with a beautifully designed home. Another theme would be the togetherness of the group, usually 8 guys that know each other really well and have a great time together. I don't want it too complicated, try for simplicity. Surprise me!
