Loparka's design was originally a contender in a contest I ran here a couple years ago. I always liked and remembered her design but was talked into awarding the original win to someone else. I regret this for the last few years and finally got in touch with her to make it right, and pay her for her excellent work! It is elegant, well composed, beautiful to look at and just the right touch of classic and modern. Mahalo Nui Loa from Hawaii!
How nickym started their logo design journey
Rubens Restaurant is a chic and contemporary restaurant. A signature of the restaurant are the steps leading up to the front door, and these are to figure prominently in the logo design. The logo should be clean and simple.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience are both guests staying our adjacent hotel and also returning and new guests. We target all audiences but want the logo to reflect an upmarket clientèle.
A logo that incorporates the restaurant's steps and possibly front door (depending on how they work together) together with it's name. The logo will be used for all of the restaurants stationary, signage etc. so must be legible at various sizes. Keep the colour to a minimum, using earth tones as a base.
While we are looking to have the steps as a feature, other ideas and designs are welcome if you feel they are strong.
Attached are some images of the front of the restaurant.
