UPDATE: As of today, March 11th at 11:00 am I will begin eliminating any designs with 3 stars or less. This is just an attempt for me to "sort" everything out, so to speak. There are a lot of great entries competing for 3 prizes so I'm only doing this to aid in making my final decisions. You've all been super to work with. Every designer has gone the extra mile to help me, you've listened to me, and many of you have had some awesome ideas that have just blown me away. So don't take any offense to some of your designs having been eliminated. There's still time for you to submit new work or revisions. Right now I'm just doing this as a form of "housekeeping", a way to clean up the page so I'm only looking at what I'm really drawn to. Thanks again everyone for all your hard work. Keep 'em coming. -Mary
I'm calling on all my talented design friends on this site to help me out.
I'm finally living (one of) my dreams of opening a bar and restaurant. It's going to be an authentic Irish Themed Pub style Bar with an attached Restaurant offering fine dining, but specifically steaks.
So read the full brief and help a gal out. I can't offer a huge prize, but I will offer detailed feedback/input and star ratings to guide you in the right direction. Long term, additional work will follow which will include Website Design, Menu Design and More.
Pine & Clover Authentic Irish Pub & Chop House
So here's what I want:
the text to appear on two seperate lines, though one line can be arched like around a circle or something like that. I just don't want it all scrunched together as one. Ideally it should read:
Pine & Clover
Authentic Irish Pub & Chop House
or mix and match the word "and" in place of the ampersand.
I'd like Pine trees, as the area the business is in is laden with Pines and Pine is actually in the towns name. I would like four leaf clover(s) to reflect my Irish heritage and to signify that it is an Irish themed venue.
I would like various shades of green and good use of a celtic font, but both lines dont have to be a celtic font - you can mix-n-match to how you see fit just so it's pleasing to the eye.
I DON'T WANT - a red bearded leprokaun or anything over the top Irish. It should be subtle, but still clear enough to reflect an Irish theme.
Layout any way you see fit, rectangle, square, circle - whatever. I have no preconcieved notions of how I am expecting it to look.
At this point I have not come up with a strapline/tagline, so if you have suggestions and wanted to include one great. Or you cant think of one either, but your design is laid out in a way that includes one just use the words "tagline goes here".
If anyone has questions they can message me here or privately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know what it is like to be a designer on here and how frustrating contests can be when a CH is m.i.a., so I assure you that I will not do that to anyone. I will check periodically throughout the day to offer feedback and guidance as well as star ratings. I will choose a winner and I will pay them. Additionally, it will result in future work for the right person.
I have fun on here designing for others but lack confidence in my own abilities to design something for myself so I'm looking forward to all of you "to hit it out of the park" for me.
The logo selected will go on everything from napkins, menus and barware (small), to aprons, signs and billboards (large). So please keep that in mine when formatting. Additionally, it should translate well to grey scale & b/w, for photocopies, etc.
- Item 1...Green color palette and possibly brown and gold with white/black as accent
Celtic style font for at least one line of text
Pine trees and clover. I really like the clovers that are created from hearts
