This design was for a vacation rental and future B&B that we are intending to use as a flagship brand logo for other possible ventures (including food products). The look needed to be both quaint but with touches of sophistication that would appeal to more urban, upscale audiences who we are trying to attract to this space. It needed to thread the needle between various moods. GiaKenza did a wonderful job, creating different 'looks' for our logo, including versions which featured our building, and text-only versions which did not. This helped us to come closer to finding what we needed to envision our own brand and its various uses, something which the other - very talented designers - did not do. It was this insight - that we didn't have ourselves - which set Gia apart from the others and helped us achieve the look we were striving for. Once he had won the commission, he was very responsive and helped us get the files we needed, and make small tweaks to the deliverables, as we worked with our printer. I'm so grateful - excellent work. I strongly recommend and endorse this designer. Many thanks! -chris bennem, proprietor Glen Hollow
How Mazen Fahme started their logo design journey
Australian College of Arabic
The Australian College of Arabic is the first institution of its kind in Australia. For the first time ever in Australia, people can learn classical Arabic in a professional, structured environment. Launching in January 2011, our teachers are very qualified and will be flying in from all around the world to take part in the establishment of such as unique project.
We are trying to make the Arabic language very accessible, and the most innovative, professional and exciting methods of teaching will be used. Our campus will be very modern and suitable for a learning environment.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
There is a very big market in Australia! We are targeting two types of people:
1. Arabs who have lost their Arabic tongue and would like to regain it
2. Non-Arabs who will like to learn a new language
Our target is adults. They are generally people who are busy with work, families and study.
Our target is looking for professionalism and quality education.
We are looking for an exciting logo. We want to look professional, but we don't want to look like a bank or accounting firm. We want to be unique.
The name of the company is "Australian College of Arabic". It is abbreviated as "ACA", but we would rather use the whole name because it is a new organisation.
A really excellent logo for us would actually have the arabic name as well. This is not a must, but it would be a bonus. What is more important is that it looks clean and unique.
The arabic name is: الكلية الأسترالية لتعليم العربية
We are not fussed about colour.
Thanks so much for working on this brand. We look forward to your designs.
