How Tom Gallivan started their logo design journey
We live and work on Nassawadox Creek Virginia growing oysters. Nassawadox is an Native American name meaning “Land between two waters” and that is reflected in the flavor of our oysters. There is a rich history of oysters here and we work from an old oyster company that was founded in the 1880’s.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This will be on our oyster boxes and website and will try to catch the attention of consumers and wholesale buyers in the competitive half shell oyster market.
We are Shooting Point Oyster Company on Nassawadox Creek in Virginia who grows high end aquacultured cocktail oysters for the half-shell oyster market.
Out current logo is a Native American with his head tilted back slurping an oyster but this logo is similar to one of our business partner’s logos and we would like a change.
I would like a small Indian standing on the right hand side of the logo shooting an arrow arching across the page. I would like the arrow to have an oyster tip. Arched over this I would like the words “Nassawadox Salts” I would like a readable but semi-antique font for this. The Indian should be standing on a shoreline of a bay…maybe some marsh grass sticking up and the horizon of water under the arching arrow and the “Nassawadox Salts” name.
I would like the words:
“Hand cultured heirloom oysters by the Shooting Point Oyster Company”
I envision this going on a white box with red lettering and artwork. So please do this in red one color only for printing purposes.
