The house in "French & Music House" is our residence, where many of the operations take place. We want to use the outline of our house in the logo. The house is how we identify ourselves and how we create our sense of family and community around our business. This familiarity is important.
We may move to commercial space in the next few years, and we want the image of a "humble" home as starting point.
The principals are also fans of the design style best displayed by the television show "Bewtiched". It is the style one sees often in the 1960's. Also, the principal music and language instructor (and face of the organization) resembles Elizabeth Montgomery.
If possible, we would like the arch-way and chimney incorporated in the design. We can envision a blond women in under the arch-way and the name "French & Music House" above the house. We just don't know how to integrate everything and we worry it will look too cluttered or busy.
I included pictures of the house, a vector art drawing of the house and a picture of the "face of the company".
We are open to different designs, ones that don't use the house or the woman, but that is our initial thought.
