Want to use this logo on coffee and espresso cups in an existing pizzeria. Logo also needs to be able to translate to a small exterior neon sign so the basic elements of the logo need to be translated well in a small environment.
I am thinking of something as simple as a pudgy italian man smelling (and enjoying) a smoldering cup of coffee. Feel free to explore other ideas but I like ideas that play on romantic and timeless themes.
Please don't consider your local urban hip coffee shop when designing this logo. I am looking for something more classic than hip.
Imagery of a person with a cup of coffee highly preferred over small icons of a coffee cup with text. I am not so concerned with the text as an appealing graphic that conveys the sentiments I am tried to outline above.
Someone mentioned using old Italian and french posters from the 20s-40s. I think using some of these elements would be great. Here is a page of posters that I really like:
The top 6 are great except the Coke poster.
Nothing overcomplicated. I am thinking of something as simple as a pudgy italian man smelling a smoldering cup of coffee. Feel free to explore other ideas but I like ideas that play on romantic and timeless themes.
- Overcomplicated designs
