How Texasslavgerman started their logo design journey
Texas Slav & German Boutique...texasslavgerman.com
Texas Slav & German Boutique is a web-based company specializing in novelties and gifts. All products are either made in Slavic countries and/or Germany or they are promoting the previously mentioned. Examples of gifts will include: traditional gifts such as christmas ornaments, clocks, flags, pottery, barware; non-traditional gifts such as baltic amber jewelry/collectibles, edgy tshirts, jerseys, jackets, art. Products will be added and changed based upon demand. We would like the logo to represent the company's personality as more progressive and youthful in an effort to capture the younger audience. We would like the logo to be unique enough to also be used on company tshirts as well...not a boring white tshirt but something with focus on the 20-40something crowd (ie fitted, soft vintage tshirts). Please keep the colors on design to a maximum of 3 colors with 1-2 colors being preferred. The logo may possibly be used on a banner when attending heritage festivals.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
People with German and Slavic (Polish, Czech, Russian) heritage with emphasis on the Texas market. Strongly wanting to capture the younger generation (20s-40's) in addition to the older generation. This younger generation has grandparents or parents native to Germany or Slavic countries. This younger group is proud of their heritage but don't often wear tshirts/caps/jewelry demonstrating their pride due to lack of style being offered in those items. Our company intends to change this. Texas Slav & German Boutique will offer these items. It will be a true one-stop shop to find items for this group of consumers as well as items for parents and grandparents who are natives of these countries and may want items of a more traditional form.
maximum of 3 colors...1-2 preferred. I would like the company name and website to be included. the company name is long thus i know it will take some creativity to accomplish this. i'm okay with the website being much smaller if neccessary.
company name: Texas Slav & German Boutique
somehow i envision some type of folk object being included though represented with an edge. (ie. an accordion). this is not required though by any means. i welcome the full creativity of all to show me what you envision.
