Great working with tasa! She submitted several designs and worked with me until I got what I was looking for.
How NickPres started their logo design journey
Bijou on the Bayou Vacation Rental Property
I am Nick. I am the president of a corporation which is opening a few new websites and running contests for the designs right now. However, I have a personal rental property that is in Slidell, LA near New Orleans and on the water. I am looking for a logo and webpage design and would like to see what someone can come up with to help me market this Vacation Rental better. I really want it to stand out above the rest of the rentals in the area and have a theme that makes people want to rent there.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The Home has been a rental for a year this month and has been renting out to people of all sorts. Mostly Vacation Renters Looking to come to louisiana to Visit New Orleans yet want the opportunity to live the louisiana swamp life, in a quieter area than the city of New Orleans. The Property is filled with mossy trees, cypress, bamboo and all the swamp type things. Canoes down the bayou's and all of the above are what they enjoy. Most of the people coming there will be avid fishermen and there wives looking for a "Fish Camp" if you will. While my home can accommodate this, it appeals more to there wives who want a more beautiful scenic look, a much nicer house with some luxury furnishings and the lack of old moldy smelling fish camps there probably used to. I am also trying to appeal to Weddings and events. the property is on an Acre and with the new deck I will soon be building will provide an "isle" to walk down to a party deck right on the water.
As you can see I am trying to get a Louisiana Swamp Feel, while showing a more luxury type setting. I want to charge a little more than the competition showing our luxury setup while still appealing to the guys looking for a "Fish Camp" right on the water. We chose the Name "Bijou on the Bayou" because Bijou is French for "Jewel" I have attached a listing of the property below so you can go see for yourself the land and the property that surrounds it, the home, its colors, and decorations.
I have also attached a word document where we created a mock up logo with the colors of the house (Yellow/Tanish with Green Shutters). It has a picture of the the house included in the logo (cropped) and I would like to stay with that look. Its a real nature type of place, so I kind of went with a Tuscan type of them with vines all around the image to give it a natural look, but since the property is surrounded by Bamboo, that could even be incorporated.
