1.) FYI - I've attached photos of existing balsamic vinegar offerings on grocery store shelves, the high-end expensive ones have very serious designs and logos, while a minority have a modern, colorful approach.
2.) I wish for a logo that that is:
a.) only TYPEFACE
b.) Is revered for its uniqueness of typeface
c.) Conveys TRADITION of Italian food manufacturers
d.) Conveys something Classic and represents the "Old Country", not modern nor whimsical.
3.) Websites for reference with what I consider to be unique typeface logos are below for reference.
4.) I've attached a photo of the actual bottle on which the logo would be placed. I believe the white background color of the label is a differentiator as most labels are not white, in addition it balances out the fact the balsamic is very, very dark.
I intend to have the label designed next, which of course would incorporate the logo.
If you have any questions or comments for me, by all means ask!
