The current website with current logo is here: http://www.scrittura-elegante.com/se_en/
We want a new logo, and we are also building a new website. The new website, under construction, can be found here: http://scrittura.mag2.skyberatedev.nl/se_nl/
The color scheme for the new website is not determined yet, so you can influence this in your proposal for the color scheme of the logo.
As you can see in the new website, there is one support color (f.e. when hovering menu items). Currently that is orange, but this will NOT be the definitive color. Please use a color, NOT orange, that can be used as the support color for the website and also fits the new logo. The website support color must match the logo, it does not necessarily have to in the logo itself, but that is allowed.
As you can see the logo is overlayed on a image banner on the homepage. Take this into account in your design. But on any other page, the logo will be displayed on a white background. The image banner picture is not ours, it is fake. We will be showing Fountain pens and writing instruments in the real website. Please show us how the logo would look on a picture background (home page: http://scrittura.mag2.skyberatedev.nl/se_nl/) like we have now on the new website (as well as optionally on a blank or black background). The logo will be placed on the site top middle page where "Argento neue" is written.
The current logo features handwritten words. This is not required nor restricted for the new logo. Scrittura Elegante means: elegant writing.
We are aware the instructions still leave a lot of room for interpretation. So surprise us. We will probably be better at providing more concrete instructions once we see examples of designs.
