Hi, my name is Lynn and I am starting my own business making stylish quality handmade flag bunting, which will be available to hire or buy. Bunting is a ‘happy’ product, a symbol of celebrations and great times and never fails to create the wow factor. I love how bunting can help transform a venue, event, wedding or occasion and the positive effect it has on people.
I based in the West Midlands, UK and will be targeting my bunting for events and special occasions at both local and national level, such as weddings; celebration parties, birthdays, anniversaries, community events, festivals and venues used for events, also community events, product launches and corporate events.
I will not only be marketing to consumers (my aim will be savvy mom’s, people who enjoy outdoor entertaining, and the ‘glamping’ crowd, people who generally love entertaining and having good times). I will also be heavily marketing my bunting for ‘bunting for business’ and targeting corporate companies (e.g. event co-ordinators, marketers etc), retail businesses, marquee suppliers, product launches , photoshots etc. So I need a good design which will appeal to both individuals/consumers and businesses.
My own personal background is in event management and marketing, so my own brand identity is very important and needs to stand out from the crowd. The logo will be the driving force for the whole brand and design process, which will include business cards, stationery, promotional material and website etc.
Bunting has a lovely nostalgic and vintage feel about it, but it is also very modern and up todate these days. With regard to design, I do not want anything that is twee. I would like to achieve a balance of a sophisticated, chic look, which has a fresh, happy feel to it. I very much like colours and themes which have a coastal feel but I am always open to new ideas. However, I particularly like the logo and simplicity of website http://www.delightful.living.co.uk. With regard to other bunting websites, I also really like http://www.robinredbuntinghire.co.uk, because I think it is striking, simple, yet still gives a good happy vibe.
Things which inspire me with regard to design/colour are: nature, the coast, sea, wildlife, flora, green fields & woods or stunning orange sunsets.
My slogan is ‘create a great atmosphere with stylish handmade bunting’.
I do not currently have any software like publisher, so would need deliverables in a pdf file to be able to open the files up.
I would like the logo to be multi usable, so would like the logo with the slogan, but also on it's own, or in other colours. Could you also do the logo in a high viz jpeg version I hope I am not asking for too much.
