First of all: I love creativeness and creative people, i really appreciate good graphic design i admire what you guys can do and i look forward to working with you, now and in the future! :)
"GOLDMUND" - is the company name (can, but doesn't have to be in all caps )
"Delikatessmanufaktur" - means delicacy-manufacturer and describes what i do.
"Fressalien & Spezereyen" - is my slogan, shouldn't be as prominent as the name and could even be left out alltogether.
I'm open to both, a logo with the whole name spelled out as "GOLDMUND" as well as variations with just the Initials "GD" or "GMD" for "Gold-Mund-Delikatessmanufaktur".
Most of my products will be in glass jars (picture in the attachments) and bottles and i plan to print circular stickers with the logo to put on top of the jars, therefore the design should work in various sizes (kinda obvious, i know).
the most important factor for me is that the logo looks interesting enough so that people stop, pick up my jars and look at them.
The actual labels (the next project for 99designs), saying what's in the jars, listing the ingredients and the price will be folded tags attached to the jars and bottels with string.
Please no handwriting-fonts, no cute cartoonish and comic-stuff, thank you!
On my Pinterest-wall i have collected a few designs and colour schemes i like, feel free to have a look:
as you can see by my examples, i'm currently drawn to line art, botanical illustrations and teal and gray-blue and olive green shades,
BUT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DO WHAT YOU THINK LOOKS GOOD, i appreciate outside of the box-thinking and fresh ideas!
UPDATE: Illustrations don't necessarily HAVE TO BE botanical, to me it's more important that the logo reflects my company's values and what i do.
cooking utensils, cutlery, pots, pans, ingredients, there are many options :)
UPDATE2: would love to see some folk art designs, maybe with love birds!
Have fun, surprise me and make this the best logo for an austrian delicacy manufacturer you have ever done! ;)
