I'm opening a store to sell Japanese and Chinese teapots, tea sets (with cups), other teaware, and tea. I always wanted to stop working for the man and start my own online business, so this is my first real attempt. I need some help on the design!
The audience is tea drinkers shopping for asian teapots and tea sets. This tends to be slightly female, slightly older audience.
What I want:
A vector logo with stylized (but readable) text (Unity Teapots) next to it. ".com" should not appear in the text. The logo should be to the left of the text, not overlapping or integrated.
What it should be like:
Simple and clear. Maybe an outline of a teapot, or a solid shape with a cutout of a teapot. Feel free to use teapots, tea leaves (look like normal leaves), and circular/radial shapes. If you can put some asian flair in there, then great.
Colors I had in mind were creams, greens, purples, yellows, oranges, black. I'd stay away from reds, blues, and browns. Probably prefer light colors. 3 colors max so it looks ok in black/white/gray.
Things I DON'T like: anthropomorphic things, photographs, cluttered/busy art
Also do a search on "japanese teapots" or "tetsubins".
1. File in the original format in full resolution (PSD or whatever program you use)
2. Standard size JPG, appropriate for a website header.
3. The font family you use, so I can tie it into the rest of my site.
Thanks so much ,and I hope this is descriptive enough! I'll be happy to answer questions you may have.
