The logo is for the Dutch Quinoa Group. Quinoa is a food product, almost like a grain but it is more a kind of seed or spinach. It is a healthy alternative to rice, pasta or potato's (high levels of protein, low glycemic index) and it can be used in a wide variation of dishes (breakfast porridge, bread, salads etc). Our company grows quinoa in the Netherlands, which nobody else has ever done before. So Dutch quinoa will be available for the first time. Our quinoa is whole grain, which most quinoa is not. We work with a group of farmers which are very important to us. We aim at reaching everybody in the community as a potential quinoa consumer.
The logo we search for must be grafically simple, very clean and should be a good icon too, so we can almost use it as a symbol. Our name should not be in it. Also not the letters DQG.
We like fresh designs, with clear colours like blue/yellow/white/green. A Dutch or agriculture accent might be nice, but no grain image please, because it is not a grain (I have included a picture of quinoa as an attachment).
Please use our examples. Try to make them look a little more professional. We like the colours en the blocks (representing acres). The quinoa plant must be graphically simple but please make a nicer one.
