Hi 99 Designs Community,
We are excited to launch a contest for our business. We run a family-owned jewelry store in San Francisco Bay Area. After initial success operating in our home, we are now expanding to a storefront in the backend of this year!
We are operating our store with the name of Gold Bay Jewelers. This name means a few things to us:
(1) We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and this area is commonly referred to as the "Golden State" due to the gold rush in the 1800s and the Golden Gate Bridge. We are (potentially) open to having the bridge incorporated into the design if it works with your design - but this is by no means a requirement.
(2) We are of Indian descent (North India to be specific). Our clientele loves gold, so having gold in your store name makes obvious sense :) We are also expanding into diamonds and other bridal jewelry, while also working with younger generations who are expanding outside of gold. So we also don't want to overly make the logo too gold-focused if that all makes sense. We are (potentially) open to incorporate Indian-inspired themes into the design, done tastefully.
(3) In terms of style, we would like to strike the right balance of elegance/luxury with clean modernism.
(4) We are attaching a very bad first draft. I don't know who made this for us, but it's a reference if you find it helpful.
Thank you for your efforts! Looking forward to seeing the designs.
