Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our company Homebuilders Hardware has been selling Solid Extruded Brass Hinges for close to 2 decades. We sold them under a no-name brand - just as Homebuilders Hardware. We are at the point where we feel that we need to create a brand for the hinges we sell.
These hinges are a luxury item and is usually installed in high-end homes as well as hotels and banquet halls. They are usually spec'd be designers and architects of fine homes/venues.
The biggest "competition" in this field is Baldwin Estate (hinges and other hardware). Another big player is Emtek.
We need a logo which will give a feel of "old-time" quality, very "fine"/elegant products. If possible incorporate an element of Royalty or Aristocracy in the look (This might be achieved by the colors - our thoughts were to go with gold on black, but we are open to other suggestions).
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What colors do you want to see in your design?
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
Old Fashioned look
Clean Icon and creative lettering
I like the Icon + name idea. I do not like the font
Clean and sharp look - font is "high end" feel. I do not particularly like the Icon/Logo element
Closest to what I have in my mind. Icon, Name and sub-title
We are not sure if we should go with a logo which has the Brand name (Ambassador) in large and under it in small (almost like a sub-title) either "by Homebuilders Hardware" or "Solid Brass Hinges", or just the word "Collection"
If we go with "by Homebuilders Hardware" - it leaves it open to add additional items (in the future) to the "series" or "collection"
Please do a image search for Baldwin Estate Hinges as well as Emtek and/or Omnia Solid Brass Hinges to get a feel for the item we are trying to brand.
