Ahonui Botanical Gardens http://www.ahonuibotanicalgardens.blogspot.com
This is a very diverse and unique botanical garden located on the lush north shore of the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Our collection includes many varieties of palms, tropical ornamentals (flowering trees and bushes), native plants, fruit and nut trees, a working vegetable garden, a nursery and a cacao (chocolate) orchard.
It has a magical feel to it because of the many rock terraces, deep valleys, year round creek and spectacular views of the close up verdant mountains and distant ocean.

Tourists, botanists and locals who love gardens and chocolate and want to do something different than go to the beach. We would like to attract people you have a more refined sensibility and yet love the earth and it’s plants for our garden tours.
We need a logo that would work well for business cards, brochures, on stationary or hats and T shirts.
Included are some sketched ideas. We are thinking that the name and art would be combined in the logo. However, we are open to having a logo (art) stand alone and the name next to it or underneath it.
We are primarily attracted to Vintage or "Old" Hawaiian Style, but also appreciate Japanese style (clean, zen)
It could be a woodcut design. It should have a tropical botanical feel yet be refined, artistic.
Colors could be earthy greens, browns, etc. or we are open the eye catching tropical shades. Please refer to blogsite to see all the variety in the garden and take your inspiration from that.
Please no stock or clip art.
We are attaching files that were quick outlining ideas, but we are open to your creativity. Thanks, and we look forward to your submissions!
