This is a logo I worked on a while ago for the bold and saucy Elizabeth Callahan of Lilly’s Lunches – she went in a different direction eventually (her current logo is wonderful, by the multi-faceted Steve Tam), but this was a great chance for me spend some quality time with Adobe Illustrator (we are totally BFFs now). The result was a diner-esque logo with a bit of pin-up sensibility.
Keen eyes may have noticed the logo also has the company name wrong (Lunch vs Lunches) – another give-away that this logo was from the company’s formative days. The business has evolved in other ways as well – Lilly is doing delicious pop-up lunches at Northwood (a favorite spot) that can be enjoyed there or taken across the street to Christie Pitts. Haven’t you always wanted a picnic?
I was commissioned to make a logo for a lovely couple who have been together since 1999. They were having a barnwood table made and one of the table’s options was to have inlaid lazer cut silver writing placed under the glazes. They decided to commemorate their love with a logo – it gives the table an awesome heritage restaurant feel (if that makes any sense at all). Since both of these excellent women are from my homeland (Saskatchewan), you may notice a wheat theme. What could be more suitable for Canada’s breadbasket… of love.
So here are the logos I gave them to choose from. (I may have gone a little bananas with wildly different options. Such is my way). The next post (on Saturday) will reveal which one they picked and the finished table! Which one would you chose?
