A brand new business requires a top notch, clean and creative logo. Lots of freedom in the design brief to flex those creative muscles, help shape our new business!
We like clean designs, and would like to see something with a symbol and the words 'Bean Republic'. The symbol and words can be separate or combined but must have both. We are also leaning toward a web 2.0 style logo but this is not a requirement - we will consider all types of designs.
Our new logo should work well on a dark and light background, for use on the web and in stationery. It should definately convert well to black and white - for use in newspaper advertising.
There is no restriction on color use - be creative and impress us! :)
UPDATE: We are thinking possibly something like the attached file (DemoPic.jpg), but with the fist holding a take-away coffee cup instead. While the hand is holding the coffee cup we still like the idea of the first - viva la revolution style, so not sure how you could work that in. Maybe also make the circle outline from images of small coffee beans. Just something we have been thinking of after we posted the contest.
