The Brief

We have a restaurant, which has run succesfully for over 4 years now, and we would like to upgrade our look to be more contemporary. We have a very nice logo already, but it is not as versatile as we would like, so we are hoping for some great ideas from you guys.

Basically we are a high quality sushi restaurant, where the main focus is on the quality of the food and the great service. We want people to have a great time with us, and get great food as well. We try to mix the traditional japanese sushi with contemporary twists from the nordic region(scandinavia) and the rest of the world, but the basic premise is just to acheive great flavour and beautiful food.

The current logo and uses can be seen here: http://www.kristianelbo.dk/sushilovers/logos.pdf

We are looking for a logo that can help us expand our business and to intuitively connect us to quality and the great times we want people to have with us. It does not have to be a totally different logo – an updated version or use of our current fish/heart, that will allow us to be perceived more stylish/modern/professional is also on the wish list.

Words can be:
Trendy but still accessible, Traditional base, contemporary twists, Soul and heart – passion, focus.
Japanese/Nordic/Modern/Danish design

Target Audience

Everybody that loves sushi :-)
Mostly out customers are 25-55 years – and a lot of younger trendy women also :-)
HIgh school students love it, but the price is often a little too high

I love your quotes, remembering this has run for over 4 years, re-face is better than changing totally.

ULTIMIT:

Estween – there you are :-)
Hoping for something amazing from you guys ;-)

And elaes: Exactly – we actually like the shape of the fish / heart, but can’t quite put our finger on why it is not perceived as modern.
The trick will be to slightly update somehow, and to find a use, that allows for clear communication of our name and logo, until such a day comes, where we only need to show the logo ;-)

- but off course we are open for the possibility of a stroke of genius from someone, to change the logo

And remember, that the whole point about this comp, is to get a logo, that will be EASIER and CLEARER when used in square spaces (like left of this comment) as well as long (like on www.sushilovers.dk), with an updated look, that will be perceived as high quality and modern ;-)

hey ADRIANUS,
I have not copied your design.Two people can design little similar sometimes.It’s a coincidence.As you have submitted it earlier than me,I am withdrawing my designs.So again it’s not copied.
Let the best wins.

ADRIANUS:

Sorry but…
Anyone could take some design presented and transform it with some variations and say it is coincidence, but it is plagiarized, and is a copy of my idea{ is too coincidental to be exactly the same but with more other curved lines, this has only one name, is a deliberately is a copy, and I will not stop until you remove your similar designs. Be creative, and not use the others designs to create yours. Its all, all people see that here, also the client, and is not correctly, now if i like to change my design and somes lines what?
What happens now if I want to change my lines early
I consider your copy to not reach the same lines you’ve done?
That is impossible to be here, 2 works exactly the same.
Please, take out your similar designs
Thanks
Adrianus

Logo king:

i have already removed the similar designs.
Now i can not do anything.I tried to make you understand but as u r not getting the point so no need to discuss further.

Now do whatever you want to do.
And before blaming on others,try and concentrate on your own work.

ULTIMIT:

Hi guys,
Thank you for all your entries, but noone has yet hit the bulls eye, and i’m sorry that I have been silent, but I have had to focus elsewhere for the last fortnight, so I have not been able to give you feedback.
I wonder if it’s possible to push the deadline a bit, so we can start the process properly.

Does anyone know how we can push it for a week for example?

Sorry to bump this but I was curious…what happens in the case of a forfeit like this? There are no refunds to the client so does Logosauce just keep all the money? Haha, it would be better if the money was disbursed evenly among every designer who contributed, even if it was just a few cents each lol.
