We are a family trying to start a site about living a simpler and self-reliant lifestyle. There are really many facets to this, but the idea is that it will the web equivalent of listening to your grandparents tell you about how life was like when they were growing up and ideas and resources to live a simpler life. It's going to grow as we go along, but imagine a site where you could find information about anything from how to tie a tie to how to grow a garden and feed your family without relying on a grocery store. The site will have a blog and a store.
We are really targeting a large group of people. Anyone who is interested in a simpler lifestyle or who wants to learn a traditional skill. We want to appeal to as many people as possible without marginalizing any specific group.
We want to be a classy and timeless design. Something simple and bold that can be used as the symbol of our brand. Think of many of the classic and easily recognizable brands. Ideally this design will look good in a variety of formats. Even as an embroidered logo on clothing or products. Recently I have been leaning towards a logo that involves negative space, but I am open to different styles.
Be capable of being used in
-letterhead, business cards, etc.
-as a watermark in the corner of pictures
-Needs to look good in black/white also.
-We need to own our logo 100%, to be able to be used as we desire, with no usage permitted by any other person.
- If your design includes words or lettering, then I must be able to separate and graphical component from the words.
-100% vectorized .ai file
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo
