Great design with multiple iterations, received and implemented feedback well, good communication, good turnaround time. I'm very happy with my designs.
Great work and fast implementation and feedback.
My original request was, " Challenge your limits to create a story in a two word description." This has been achieved and I couldn't be happier about the outcome. I saw amazing work from all competitors and to reduce this to one choice was not easy. Fiorald totally nailed the design I was searching for and at a glance I could see my story appear in two words. Awesome job and many thanks to Fiorald and all other competitors.
DeGab created a design that was exactly the aesthetic I wanted for the vision of Apprecia Post. She is extremely talented, incredibly easy to work with, generous with her time and advice, and very communicative. I would work with her again anytime.
Amy is fast and skilled!
Great working with you! Thank you very much for your support!

We are converting the existing restaurant BeachPit BBQ into Shabby Chic BBQ Lounge. The address is 1676 Tustin Ave, Costa Mesa, CA 92627. Go to Google maps and take a walk around. We like the building the rest will change. We are looking for that relaxed classic southern shabby chic feel. The front patio will be transformed with white umbrellas and more classic hanging lights and a mixture of regular tables and chairs and couches and coffee tables with a fire ring. It should be a little feminine but not too much with some Southern charm. It will be a place to go for a glass of wine or a craft beer with some BBQ, pasta or other comfort food in a really casual but sophisticated feel.
The back patio will be dedicated for hardcore BBQ foodies. Old school texas brick pit bbq cut to order and served on pink butcher paper with bread and pickles and eaten at community tables.
The logo will also be reproduced as a lit sign on the tin roof. Pictures of the actual restaurant front are attached as well as some others for reference.
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT. BBQ is not grilling steaks or fish on the grill. Its smoking meat low and slow. Please please do not include pictures or references to grilled foods, fish, grilled vegetables, etc. If you don't know about Southern BBQ then watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtmV4fuUT2s.
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the logo and hosted website?
muted colors with a kick. grays, browns, RED, mauve. We are not looking for a traditional Western look so please no cow heads, wagon wheels, cactus, rope borders, etc. This is Shabby Chic from the deep South. Imagine going to your grandma's house in the Deep South (Georgia, Texas, Alabama on Sunday afternoon for supper. The look is eclectic Southern with a little modern twist in the text font. It should be Southern California cool too since we are near the ocean.
