We are a take-out and catering company that specializes in southern style pit Bar-B-Q. The menu is traditional (brisket, ribs, chicken, homemade sausage, pork loin, etc.) with recipes that go back three (3) generations. We're known for our slow-smoked meats and bar-b-q sauce along with our kickbutt beans and potatoe salad.
We are looking to take the business to the next level (dine-in restaurant, bar-b-q competitions, online ordering, etc.) and need to start with a logo that identifies us.
What message we want to convey: Good, Old Fashion, Pit Bar-B-Q
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Lovers of old fashion bar-b-q! Customers range from coprorate to blue-collar.
Have fun and be creative; we're easily impressed but will know IT when we see IT!
We are open to typeface only or typeface with icon designs; all for which are clear and bold. We would like something that truly represents an 'Old Fashion' theme. We've included examples of other logos that we like but are to be used only as a reference. Will tell you that we like the Jack Daniels styled logo but have seen it too many times.
Not interested in stock images or clip art unless you can make a compelling creative statement; we are looking for original works.
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
High resolution for printing
Ultimately we want to have an ongoing relationship with the winning designer for future projects.
