We are looking for the following:
A simple classic professional fontbased logo (we're not really looking for symbols though the logo can be 'accessorized')
It will be font based and could play on the A of Artisan or the whole word
The design may be that it is even just the words with no image at all.
The type of font is completely up to you! Feel free to use a script font or plain standard sans serif or serif – whatever you like.
We would like quite dark colours please – not too bright or feminine. Ideally we would like the colours to work on a dark (not necessarily black) AND white background.
The final design needs to be provided in Adobe Illustrator format please.
We have run 4 very successful logo competitions before. Particularly look at the logos that were shortlisted for Helen Maynard and Ariadne Capital - you'll get a good idea about what we like from these.
