Project description

We are a new Bistro & wine bar in the heart of Sonoma County California “Wine Country.” We are in need of a logo that shows our commitment to purveying our food ingredients, beer, wine and all aspect of our new bistro from within a 100 mile radius.  My wish, is that the artist that wins will have some personal insight to the organic, sustainable and true artisan nature of classically prepared French inspired, organic, artisan, from scratch - California cuisine that is our community and culture.

My idea for a logo includes the sense of distance (like a mile marker on a map), with roots in or as a compass showing in a silhouette fashion.

Our style is sophisticated dining in a well-appointed jazzy-farm table atmosphere with a casual experience. The atmosphere is a sense of a weekend jazz concert at a small farmers market.

Our logo image - apart from the name - will convey (without words) our commitment to the 100 mile concept and our commitment of root to table and community:

sun, roots, compass a sense of local distance between us and the farmers as a wine country Bistro... Or lets see your new completely DIFFERENT ideas?

  • Dear CH, I suggest you to consult with someone in graphic design industry about the requirements for the logo. About how the logo could be applied on different surfaces, used in online media, it's colors and the thickness of the lines/shapes, pros and cons of the different styles. We're not allowed to do that here. This is your money. Technically, we can draw waterer you want to get the price, but many of us want to deliver logo that you can actually USE. Thanks.
