Dear 99designs team,
I herewith would like to charge you with finding the suitable logo design for the realization of my desired project, the opening of a little cozy but elegant boutique hotel with high-quality restaurant and a lovely boutique to shop design accessories and culinary specialties. The most predominant colours are grey and a light antique dusky pink. To better develop the logo you must understand my background; I'm German and have studied international hospitality and tourism management and have worked in the hotel and catering industry for many years. I already managed a little cafe bistrot in Germany but many years ago. After that I worked in Brussels in international affairs and came to Italy in 2012 and worked in Milan until 2015 in international sales. I'm currently working for a German company, I'm still in marketing and sales. But being more flexible and as working from home I've more time to focus on my personal dreams and projects. My vision and project is to open up a little cozy and elegant boutique hotel and restaurant. It is my passion to serve people, enjoying good food and sharing lovely experiences while eating and spending time together within a lovely surrounding. I'm already doing this with friends at my place/ at home but I want to share this with more people and this is how the idea of my project was born. This year I moved to the Lake Lugano in Italy at the border with Switzerland. It is a small paradise where I've spent all my holidays during childhood as my parents have a second home there. The dream to live there some day was realized this year. Now I am ready to realize my next dream. With the experiences abroad I feel very international, I love the Italian culture, food and lifestyle, the french feminine style, the language and the open and communicative way of life of Belgian and Dutch people. With my hotel and restaurant I want to combine all those elements with my passion and own personality and create "Chez Moi", which means "at my place/at home", which can be interpreted in two ways. The guest can feel at home, so on the one hand as if he was at home and on the other hand as if he was at my place, at my home while living the ambience I have at my home and want to share, my favourite cuisine, inspired by my huge luggage of international experiences. All I create represents myself and my passion. The logo should therefore include a soft pink rose, like an acquarell or just the shape of the rose incorporated in the letters (in grey schade) of Chez Moi. I'm still not sure about the subtitle, I wanted to write "Fine food and living" but now I am thinking of writing "Boutique & Bistrot" or "Boutique - Hotel - Bistrot". For your understanding, I live in Italy near the Swiss border, the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. The locals speak Italian but there are many German, Dutch and Swiss tourists, so English, German, Italian and also french speaking people live and stay at Lavena Ponte Tresa. The wording should be therefore in English or French in line with my corporate identity. The target group I am looking at comprises the middle and upper class, so to say good and high income earners who are food and art lovers, willing to spend for high quality services.
