We prefer the emphasis to be on the word Eatia; with the word Media being downplayed.
If any objects are to be used in the design, the items we prefer to associate with the brand are: cutlery (forks, knives, spoons) OR olive(s) OR any of your original ideas as long as they relate to our type of business and/or the clients we serve as described below.
With the cutlery we prefer their use is subtle and not the obvious of using a knife as the letter i.
The reason we associate with olives is because they remind us of fine food and martinis and for us have a feeling of sophistication. I describe this in case it helps you to identify other icons that may work in the design.
Items that don't seem to work for us unless done very subtly are speech bubbles and play buttons as they are a bit overdone in our area and also don't really apply to what we do.
FInally, our primary customers are upscale restaurants and luxury wine and spirit brands and we want our design to be mature and tasteful without being boring and stuffy. In addition to traditional print advertising we also do web design, social media, video, and mobile marketing for our clients among other things and we do like to be considered at the forefront of newer forms of marketing.
Please don't hesitate to ask any questions or if you want to discuss any concepts prior to investing your time. Thank you very much.
