We're looking for something simple and clever (see the first uploaded image as a general example). We're also looking for something in the "craftsman" or "retro" style (see the second image). Color use should be minimal. This logo and business card design is just the beginning of our work -- we'll eventually need a website, social media, etc., and we're hoping start a long-term relationship with the winning designer. Thanks for your time!
PS. Need to know what a hotdish is? Check it out on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotdish
UPDATE: Quick clarification: we're hoping to get a design that, either literally or abstractly, includes the look of a hotdish. If you're not sure what that looks like, click here: http://bit.ly/23PSOVa.
We also wanted to emphasize that we're looking for something clever like the Martini House logo below. It's our hope that a designer will figure out a cool/retro way to combine the visual of a home (or neighborhood) and a hotdish casserole pan, much like the designer in the Martini logo incorporated martinis and a home.
Thanks as always for your time and attention!
