This design was for a vacation rental and future B&B that we are intending to use as a flagship brand logo for other possible ventures (including food products). The look needed to be both quaint but with touches of sophistication that would appeal to more urban, upscale audiences who we are trying to attract to this space. It needed to thread the needle between various moods. GiaKenza did a wonderful job, creating different 'looks' for our logo, including versions which featured our building, and text-only versions which did not. This helped us to come closer to finding what we needed to envision our own brand and its various uses, something which the other - very talented designers - did not do. It was this insight - that we didn't have ourselves - which set Gia apart from the others and helped us achieve the look we were striving for. Once he had won the commission, he was very responsive and helped us get the files we needed, and make small tweaks to the deliverables, as we worked with our printer. I'm so grateful - excellent work. I strongly recommend and endorse this designer. Many thanks! -chris bennem, proprietor Glen Hollow
How Funplace started their logo design journey
We are a blogging site that inspires visitors to put together innovative ideas for wedding and special occasion events. We provide advice, visual inspiration, and encourage our community to share their insight and expertise. We will be showcasing wedding and themed events, that are beautifully photographed and posted to the site.
Our mission is to create a tool that compiles much of the needed information in planning an event on one site. From venue selection to centerpiece, cocktail reception to music play list, we provide the inspiration to plan your perfect event.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
People who are interested in planning for a wedding and learning about event trends. Most likely the audience will be female but we expect a some crossover with the male audience.
We are looking for the main logo and an avatar icon- to use with our affiliate partners (e.g. Facebook "F" icon): Below are the requirements:
A) Logo: A balance of organic and linear/ modern design elements:
-Muted color palette
-Logo needs to be feminine (but not too flowery/ fluffy) and appeal to women
-Will be covering current trends and hip events, so need to have a modern/ sophisticated vibe
B) Logo font:
-Like the font @ myfonts.com/ LDJ exhibit (Logostyle.jpg)
-Like the underlying font and some of the sketchiness/ stars/ dots/ etc. but in its’ original format is way too busy/ messy
-Needs to be cleaned/lightened up with minimal scribble/ sketchiness.
C) What we like the logo to look like:
-Need to coordinate with existing wallpaper design (background.jpg)
-The logo should incorporate a tagline and a bug icon – like general layout attached below
-Scribbled line between logo and bug is supposed to look like a wire/ trail.
-Attached is an idea to inspire the designer- LogoIdea.jpg
2. Avatar/ icon using mouse/bug reference:
-Would like to morph a wired mouse and a bug
-Icon recognizable as media button (same shape as facebook, but just with wired bug icon) - this can be added to sites that may want to link to us.
-Attached is a powerpoint slide with pictures we gathered with interesting bugs that can resemble a mouse (Inspiration Bug Logo Design_r2.pptx).
