Great designer!! Couldn't have asked for a better designer to work on my project with. He was attentive, fixed any issues I had, and completed everything quickly. Will definitely be using him again in the future!!!

Fantastic interpretation of our brief.
Virtuoso submitted his proposal late, but immediately convinced with a strong, aesthetic design that was perfectly crafted. The collaboration was simple, efficient and enjoyable. All print data in perfect quality. I can highly recommend him.
Thank you for your brilliant work. The first submitted design was just what I was looking for and then you worked with me to fine tune it with excellent communication until we had a finished product. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
So happy with these designs! This designer went above and beyond to make sure I had exactly what I wanted, was a great communicator, and turned files around in a timely fashion. Thanks again :)
Very responsive to feedback. Gave many designs and alterations to choose out of. Fantastic work!!
How Mike Magill started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
The Busholme Public House
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a full service restaurant / bar that focuses on made to order food and live entertainment. Audience tends to be a 30 + crowd in a small modest income town.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
We want to be branded as The Busholme Public House and like the idea of having Established 2016 or Est. 2016 in the logo. In the Past (under other ownership) the restaurant has been the Busholme Inn, The Busholme Gastropub and other names focused around "The Busholme". It is a small town and the buidling given it history will always be known as The Busholme.
The Building was built in 1886. It's a Victorian home originally built as a hospital. It is located in a small town (Erin Ontario, Canada) Originally Settled by Irish and Scottish Immigrants. The history of the town mainly based around fabrication Mills, Grist Mills, wood planing mills, woolen mills etc.
The Busholme has also been an Inn and a hospice in it's earlier days. It was converted into a restaurant in the 1960's. There is a "rough" history associated with the location. You still hear stories of the fights, tables being bolted to the floor, live music etc.
We have only been open since March of 2016 and have definitely changed the old reputation although it is still part of our history. All meals are fresh made in house. We host a wide variety of live music and event every weekend and often throughout the week. The idea is to be a pub with a bit more flair. Food is 50% of our sales as are beverages.
We are still using the old sign from previous owners. Its incredibly dated. 30% + of our business is from traffic driving by as it is on a busy main street. New branding / signage could really help increase that number. Nothing too busy. History / Heritage is important. Not to keen on the idea of having actual photos of the building in the logo. Sketches, renderings etc. of the building are good. We like the idea of a circular logo / badge (doesn't have to be though).
We always hear from customers that they had no idea there are new owners. We need people to know its new and things are different / better. We are a young family run business. Thanks for the interest!
