can anyone recommend a layout for this logo please?

Hi Team,
I'm having a problem with a design for a new logo, this is my first attempt at it but my client's not sure about it.
it has to be used on a 'A' frame & a 8' x 550mm fascia,

Any ideas??? :-?

Cheers, Steve :drums:

In stead of just having the grapes laying on the table, why not make a grape vine boarder and put the name and bottle etc inside.

just having a play will my edge is printing
because the logo has to take two forms landscape and portrait
i have made the A Board logo a header panel and repeated it
at the bottom and made the centre a mock chalk board effect - the customer can keep changing his message more £'s for you......

i hate white backgrounds so reversed it so claret background and white text always to me makes things look more expensive...

Here's mine.

Its more of a logo design than a sign design. But I hope it gives you some ideas.

Don't use this - it's already taken, but might give you an idea.

It's eye-catching, memorable, and I like its simplicity.

very nice stevo,
How long does it take you to draw something like that? and where does the inspiration come from? Even if I got the inspiration, (do now and again) It would take me all day to put it down on screen.

Hi Peter.
This design took about an hour for me. Alot of my inspiration comes from old adds I see in "A Magazine About Letterheads", Signcraft magazine, fellow letterheads, painting, package design. I pretty much absorb anything I see that I like and try to emulate or put my spin on it. Package design is a great way to get inspiration. I probably look weird to folk just looking at packages in the grocery store! I cant help it! I look at everything, I can be watching a movie and checking out the signs and lettering in it before the actors!
As far as how fast I did it, its basically all practice to me and I even tried out some new elements in this design to see how they would look. After absorbing all that I see I can usually come up with something within 5 minutes or so and execute it.

Thanks for all the great ideas!!

Adrian - I like the simple layout mate, what typeface are you using? it looks familiar...


Stevo... great design, fantastic stuff, I'm not sure the budget will go to this though. I have suggested digital prints & the extra costs but then again I didn't really have anything to show as an example, I will keep you posted.

Cheers, Steve :drums:

Adrian, I was going to say Bembo!!! :thumbup2:

What confused me was the slightly different character shapes especially the 'R', I use the Adobe version of Bembo (see the font example below)

I've never used it all caps, looks great. I think the Bembo font family is a classic all rounder, it's a very classy font for 9 point copy, a very easy font to read. (used a lot in books)
Thanks for jogging my memory about this useful font.

(I'll let you know if I need the 'vine', thanks again)

Cheers, Steve :drums:

I just wanna say thanks again to Stevo,
I didn't really have any time this morning to take in all the fine detail of your design, it's a great work of art!!!
Did you draw the grapes & vines freehand?
Would you say this is really for print output? I could see some of the elements could be vinyl cut (& if Mike the Sign was still about he would say yes :wink: )
I feel for this low budget job I will end up going along with the ideas that Adrian has suggested, but I will keep you posted.

Cheers, Steve :drums:

No Problem Steve, glad to do it!

This time I resorted to using clip art for the grapes but what I did with them was add some shading and highlights to liven them up abit. I did go overboard on the effects and shading but it can still be an effective piece for vynull output minus some of the effects.

i agree on both accounts..

really likes adrians based on its simplicity and suits what its for. wine sales/bar...

stevo, what can i say.. amzing design mate.. really like it. as you say.. the shape would be hard to incorporate into sign shape but can be used as a top notch logo along side....

i also liked johns suggestion, i know it wasnt his own, but liked it also.

thanks for posting guys, great work as ever.

steve thurlow, thanks for taking the time to use the graphic forum mate.. :wink:

Thanx again folks.

Nik, the typestyle I used on Brockford was from one my fav lettering designers Arthur Vanson, they're neat little details. www.letterheadfonts.com

Well thank you Mr Robert (The Bruce) Lambie.
I will do it more often, it's great to bounce ideas off our talented members.
I will also let you know the outcome of this job.
