We would like the Boston Terrier image to be fun and hip, but not too silly or too cartoonish- it must appeal to all ages. Our look is definitely simple, vintage and timeless- please don't submit modern or contemporary logos. Our target audience is casual and coastal. Our dog image should be winking or have some other subtle humorous look (a tie-in to "chuckle"). A top hat or bowler hat may be interesting.
We will also use this dog image as a stand-alone branding image on tags, sleeves, and other inconspicuous places (similar to the "Life is Good" face). So, it must be simple and able to stand alone from the company name also. The line "Trendy Mementos" will be used on signage and print media, but not on retail products, so, we must have this line as a separate file.
The company name is Chuckletown Productions. Please show us some interesting font styles!
I have uploaded some images taken from google image searches. Please use these as a starting point. The graphic simplicity of the winking dog is attractive. The humor and vintage style of the terrier with top hat and magnifier is delightful. Would love some marrying of these two. The scanned photo is the real inspiration behind the logo and included just for general reference.
If you have questions, please ask!
