We are transforming a "dead mall" into a Mexican mall. We are changing everything- from the actual structure of the mall to the inside decorations and tenants inside the mall. The mall theme will be consistent with mexican colonial architecture. Attached are some pictures of the type of decor that will be prevalent in the mall, as well as the structural design that the mall will have.
The name "Macroplaza" comes from a well known town-center area in Monterrey, Mexico, where most of the local population in this area are from. A famous natural landmark of Monterrey is "Saddle Mountain" (pictures attached).
We want a logo where the words "Macroplaza Mall" are really the logo itself. One idea was to make somehow make the "M" in Macroplaza somehow resemble the saddle from Saddle Mountain. Or to incorporate a lantern on a pole somehow on the "p" or an "l". Or the "O" shaped center part of the mexican flag as a letter. Or the iconic "angel of independence" as part of it.
(All of these are simply ideas- trying to demonstrate the type of idea we have in our minds. Use as many or as few of them as you deem appropriate- you are the designer and know much better than me)
Our goal at the mall is to make the mall as authentically mexican as possible, giving the people who have moved away a small piece of their homeland. We are trying to bring small, subtle peices of their home to this mall- and we want our logo to reflect that idea as much as possible.
I have attached photos of some of the design sketches we have for the architecture of our mall, some decor themes and ideas that will be present throughout the mall, some images of the "saddle Mountain" and some different famous landmarks in Mexico for reference, as well as a rough sketch of an idea for a logo. Again- we are not designers- all of these items attached are not requirements- just simply intented to give you an idea of our mall and what we are trying to do here.
