Mr. Giftster is a new online gift retail company designed to make the average online consumer the ultimate gift buyer. By specializing in the most creative and innovative gifts we plan to differentiate ourselves from our competitors by personalizing our products, giving our site a sense of authenticity that will change the way people shop for their gifts.
The first example logo is my own and represents the character or type of character I'd like to use for my site. (Thinking a vintage classy Santa, Secret Santa, or Bond Santa. What he does when he's not doing Christmas.) I like the old vintage feel. Also, a big fan of the type of artwork of the whale in the example logo section. The classy Santa with the Top hat in the whale type of art might be cool if at all possible.
I am also alright with just text considering I'm not sure if I am incorporating the character into the logo yet.
The website that is currently up is not the one that will be used. It's going to be made to work with the logo. Tentatively leaning towards color scheme for website of the CXXVI Charcoal/Sand or it's inverse (Top 2 to the Right in the Example Logo's) So if you feel like you have a color scheme for the logo that will go well with the site feel free to use it.
Be creative, and good luck!
