Industry
Beauty
Color Preferences
Primarily black and white with nodes of warm gray. Please explore other color and or use of high-end of textures.
Our Ideas & Additional Information
** After seeing a lot of text with no concept, we would like to incorporate examples from this beauty industry, which is related to nails, spa, (so elements of zen like nature, a leaf, , etc), natural, etc.

*** We are open for explorative ideas that feel like a luxury, high end experience for our customers. Textures, and elements tied to our business.

We want it to be unique as the name already suggests Gen Bean. Please don't use actual beans in the logo. Hotel chic is an appropriate description of how our actual storefront will be designed, with heavy use of black and white pinstripes on a wall inside our store for example highlighted with yellow flowers on a table - with texture everywhere from custom low-back chairs to marble flooring. Customers should feel like this is an elevated brand experience and want to come back.

** Please develop your own style**

Style. Please see our examples for styles. We are definitely interested in emblems, wordart, signatures, and anything organically drawn that is very custom and unique.

We are open for characterization art of a stylistic woman/man (ie starbucks).

Application: Our brand will be used for web, apparel, retail, tv, and mobile app experiences.

Please have example of a logo with our full name : Gen Bean Beauty Bar
And also the abbreviated version of just Gen Ben.

If an icon is presented we are ok to see GB along with either short or long form name above.

Name inspired by the Owner's name Genelle - but possibly think of a tie in for the Bean portion of the name.

Discussion

 
Collectively we are getting a lot of logos just recycling fonts with no creativity. Please understand the business and tie in concepts to the logo that are relevant to the business from nails, to spa, to beauty in general, a woman and man escape, etc. There are tons of nail salon imagery that can be worked in but we are rarely seeing the creative aspects that are inspiring us.

Please explore gray and gold together. (gray in the background) - as an alternative color treatment. Black and white is still our primary.

Dribbble.com has logos that are very detailed so far, and we feel the font treatments are not that detailed. please attempt some ideas with GB that have style.

We've tried to comment where we can, but are struggling to find a logo we are proud of. We may have to open this up to all designers once more, rather than just the top 5. There are several approaches to this logo that could work, but we are struggling with the quality and attention to detail that is so far presented. Please approach this extended round if you so desire with quality in mind, not just a recycling of past concepts. We want something that is unique, and yet strong. Visually compelling, and fit for a national US-based brand.

Possibly focusing on just the icon - that should represent us well, isolating that in these next revisions, so that we can see a brand develop outside of the name itself.
