How Linda Collier started their logo design journey
The RIM Coffeehouse Co
We are a couple starting our dream Coffeehouse. It will be a small Italian themed coffeehouse specializing in Espresso Coffees, Pastries, Sandwiches, and Wine. The atmosphere is a Tuscan Lodge decor with a fireplace, cozy sofa and chairs, cafe' tables, warm and inviting.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are located in a neighborhood of upscale homes. The market is wide open. Nothing similar for at least 4 miles. There are families with children of all ages, retired couples and college students. We aim to appeal to all of them. We want The Coffeehouse to be somewhere that a person can stop and pick up a quick coffee, sandwich or pastry or sit, relax, access the internet, have a meeting, have a coffee, glass of wine etc. A place where your friends are waiting.
We are looking for a logo that will represent our Coffeehouse. Something that would make you really want to come in and stay a while. The RIM needs to be the primary words, with the Coffeehouse Co being on the logo but, not necessarily in one sentence. We would love to see art work depicting the coffee, sandwiches and wine instead of words. No stock images of clip art please. The colors should be warm, in the mocha family with accenting colors; burgundy, Deep Golden, black etc...just a thought. We need this logo to make our signage for the building and for our A frame boards in addition we will need it for business cards and menus. Please no cartoons. We want it to be very tasteful, with class.
