Hello, i'm starting new business from San Francisco, CA. We are a consignment shoe store that focuses on selling brands like, nike, underarmor, adidas, & jordans. Our main focus is to sell online and in stores and provide one of the best customer service you can find in our field. My cousin and myself are starting the business together and we are very passionate about shoes and passionate about our religious beliefs(Catholic) and we wanted to incorporate those two things into our logo. Our target audience is from a wide range of ages from 13-35+ (people in general who like fashion, shoes, sports, and athletic wear)
Our vision for our logo start with our store name and what our name means to the company. Grail pertains to a holy grail (a rare cup that was thought to use by jesus at the last supper) So what are idea is the customers leave our store with their most sought out shoe that's hard to find, essentially making the shoe a "grail" to them (slang term used in the sneaker community. - A shoe that has both sentimental and monetary value to the owner and supersedes the rest of the shoes in ones collection.)
What are we looking for in are logo:
1. Try to keep the minimum number of colors because this logo will be used on t-shirt, business cards, and such, that every different color you use the printing companies will charge more (they charge per ever color)
2. We want our logo to incorporate a chalice cup, a church cross, a shoe or shoes, but don't hesitant to be creative with these things.
3. We would like our logo to say "GRAILS SF" but we want the font to be a shoe lace type of font. I provided some pictures at the bottom.
4. But more important we want you designers to be creative and use your imagination! I'm a very open person!
Below i attached a rough draft i drew of the idea/concept logo that i'm looking for. It doesn't have to be exactly like the picture, but it gives you a general idea of the concept and what i'm looking for. Feel free to play around as long as the 3 things are incorporated into the logo ( a holy grail cup, a shoe or shoes, and a cross)
Any questions or need of clarifications please don't hesitate to ask!
