** PLEASE PLACE LOGOS ON WHITE BACKGROUND, NOT CREAM**
We need a logo design for our sourdough bread startup in San Francisco. We're two Stanford grads who make handmade sourdough bread, and sell to startup employees. Your design will be in front of employees at all the top startups & tech companies in SF. We are calling the bread "start" bread. (for sourdough starter and startup companies!) We want the word "start" to be the logo. We would also like to see some type of abstract logo / symbol - this would be great but is not necessary. The stylized word "start" might be sufficient. We will let your creative eye decide that! If it's just the word, we'd like it to be very unique / recognizable. We want to see bright block designs. Very modern and fun - different from normal bakery or artisan companies out there. We will use this on a website and also print this on paper packaging. We want the packaging itself to be bright - so we can print the logo in white, etc, but also want a version where the logo is brightly colored -- so we can put it on a neutral or white. I'd love to see a color scheme from you. We like reds, turquoise, orange, white, green, etc. We are open to upper case, lower case, or title case. We want to see something different from the "hipster" or "minimalist" designs currently out there in artisan food. We are inspired by jonathan adler's modern and funky eye -- bright pops of color against neutrals. We like geometric patters as a background, so would like the logo & text to be block / something we can print large & in 1 color. We are looking for fresh, clean lines. Feel free to reach out if there's anything else I can explain to inspire you!
Update: i'm looking for something more modern - with NO reference to the baking aspect - i do not want to see rolling pins, bread, etc. in the logo. It should just be a modern brand.
