La Manda's Restaurant

Project description

Ours is a small Italian restaurant that will be celebrating our 70th anniversary in 2017.  My parents, Jerry and Maria have been here since 1967 so 2017 is also 50 years for them.  while my main focus is to have a 70 year (1947-2017) celebration logo i'd like to see if we can also incorporate an acknowledgement of their accomplishment of fifty years (1967-2017).

we are a simple family place.  we serve traditional Italian food including pizza.  if you go to our website you can get a better feel for our place.    in the photo section you can also see our large neon sign in the front of the restaurant.  without having an official logo for La Manda's, I've used that script for our menus and business cards.  it's been a simple black script on white background...  

if i were to use a color in the logo i'd go with maroon.  that is the color of the front of the restaurant.

  • Hi. thanks for your submission. can we make the La Manda's font more script like the neon sign in front of our restaurant? also, what if we got rid of restaurant and moved the since 1947 to the bottom.

    • Hi. this is a positive step. can we swap the 70 years and the La Manda's. i don't know if we need the fancy feathering at the top and bottom so can we try with and without it. also, Jerry and Maria are celebrating 50 years of ownership, not marriage, so maybe can put 50 Years At The Helm or something like that.

    • @lamandas you may please check #52... I have presented 3 variations... please let me know which one suits you better,if you have some other changes in your mind feel free to ask... Thanks

  • Dear CH
    this my first submission #48
  • These are great thank you. however, my goal here is to accentuate our 70th anniversary. can you see if you can work that in? #28
    • About #28, @lamandas I've added 70 years to the design #40, #49. Hope you like it.

  • HI CH! Saw your comments and applied it. Hope you like it! Let me know which of the two you like more.Cheers! #35
  • Hi and thank you for taking my comments into account. you are one of the few. we were thinking that the zero could be a plate of pasta so it would almost look like a table setting with the very clever knife and fork.

    how do you think it would look if we curved the writing to go with the outline of the circle. maybe move la mandas to the top. get rid of restaurant and put "Since 1947" under the La Manda's. maybe this will uncluttered it a bit and let the 70 years part stand out more. #26

  • Hi all. I may have not been clear enough in my initial description. I am not looking for a general company logo for my restaurant. I am looking for a logo for our 70th anniversary year in 2017. i would, if its possible, like to pay a tribute to my parents' 50th anniversary of owning the restaurant, which is also 2017.
