I tend to appreciate clean / vintage-style design. I've also created a design inspiration board on Pinterest, which you can find here: https://www.pinterest.com/slowbrine…spiration/
However, please don't let this limit your designs--I appreciate your creative inspiration. As this contest moves forward, I am thinking more about not only literal representations of pickles and krauts (which I love, but don't want it to be limiting, one can pickle all sorts of things, carrots, beets, etc...), but am also thinking more figuratively. I live on the coast, use sea salt for pickling, and work with the farming community on the coast. The name Slow Brine is also evocative of the sea. How might this come through in a logo?
Also, what is slow? Brining vegetables, and the fermentation process is slow. What else is slow. What might come to symbolize the brand?
Thank you for your creativity and working with me through this process!
