I am exceptionally happy with the work, effort, and final product produced by Flatsigns. I had no idea what I wanted when I initially launched my project; however, Flatsign’s innovative designs really helped give shape to my business. Outstanding work.
How Blue Moon started their logo design journey
Blue Moon Beach House Bed & Breakfast
We are a husband and wife owner operated waterfront bed and breakfast on Camano Island in Washington State (90 minutes north of Seattle). We have owned the Blue Moon for six years now, and are #1 rated on Tripadvisor for our area. 95% of our reservations come online, and we do not advertise. Good reviews and word of mouth drive our business. We have a beautiful and unique waterfront location, and the focus of our décor is the water. We are young, fun and welcoming and our business reflects this, in other words not your typical B&B or B&B owners. Before we opened the B&B, we had a café and bakery for 8 years. Please look at our website http://www.bluemoonbeachhouse.com for a better feel of our business.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our guests range in age from 25-65. They are generally couples looking for a private getaway and to treat themselves. Most guests find us through an internet search of some sort. Most guests come to us from the Seattle area, other parts of Washington, and northern Oregon. We also host a fair amount of Canadians from the Vancouver B.C. area.
We are looking for a logo that can be used in many different ways. We put our logo on our toiletries, t-shirts and other merchandise, brochures, invoices and gift certificates. We also want the logo to kick off a fresh new look for our website.
We would like the logo to have a moon, and water if possible. A different version than what you see on our site now. We would like the words Blue Moon Beach House used. We would also like to see a version adding the words Camano Island, Washington.
1. Nothing cartoony or “Man in the Moon” -too often this can go into a nursery looking moon.
2. We are a casual beach house –so nothing too scrolled, fancy or cluttered. Spare and simple -IKEA -like.
3. We like natural colors (water, beach pebbles, sky, trees, mountains), as well as black and white. Nothing too pastel, or neon. We live in the Pacific Northwest –not Miami.
4. The type should be easy to read.
5. No clip art or stock images in the logo.
The files we will require are:
Print file format -PDF (CMYK)
Web file format -.jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
We would like to be provided the font used as well.
Have fun, we can’t wait to see what you create for us! We will give lots of feedback to get going in the right direction. Thank you!
