I just opened a small pizzeria on a shoe string. Everything is local and organic with obsessive attention to detail. What I am not is a graphic designer. You can read all about my philosophy on my (hopefully) very temporary website http://www.flatsrestaurant.com. It is BADLY in need of a whole new look.
I want to cater to those who can appreciate local and organic food and the artisan craftsmanship that goes into making these pies. I want to be careful not to get too pretentious.
I would like to leave this pretty open. I have used one pizza graphic on my sign already and hope to somehow incorporate it. Perhaps it can be manipulated to change it without it becoming completely unrecognizable? It is not a must I am just looking for the best design.
Please try to get past the look of the website and read the content to really understand what Flats is all about.
The Logo should include some image.
Flats and then the phrase Organic Pizzeria.
I am attaching 2 files. The Pizza image that I mentioned above. And a sheet of cards I made for business cards. I would like to incorporate this shade of green in the color palette. (though I am really getting ahead of myself since I am thinking about this color more for the website and print material than having to be part of the logo itself)
I will be happy to answer any questions and give feedback at anytime.
Thanks so much! Paul & Julie
