I would like an elegant/sophisticated logo or a cool/hipster logo that appeals to both men and women.
I like the idea of using a leaf/leaves/vine graphic in the design.
I am quite relaxed about the format/style/font of the brand name in the design, but the brand name will be printed on products (some of which are quite small), so the brand name on 1-2 lines is better than the brand name on 3 lines).
I will be registering the winning logo for a trademark in USA and Europe which will require the logo/design to be unique.
The full logo will go on the brand website.
The full logo will be printed on product packaging/boxes, which will either be black or white/cream colour. So, I think I will need a light colour for the black packaging, and a dark colour logo for the white/cream packaging
The brand name (and possibly the full logo) will be printed on the products, some of which will be quite small (eg. knife), so the "Silver Leaf Bay" wording needs to be clear/readable when the font size is small.
