My husband and I have purchased a building on the banks of the Loire river in the heart of the Loire Valley, France which we are in the process of transforming into rental apartments/artist residency, antique shop and pop-up restaurant space.
The building used to be the village butcher shop 'L'Ancienne Boucherie' and we have stuck with that name for the moment. However we would like help with re-branding the concept and need a great logo for our website, business cards etc.
The project will eventually require
- new website
- menu design
- monthly bulletin design
We both have a background in fine art but do not have the technical skills required to design a digital logo.
Our preference is for something classic, the use of old typefaces, the obscure, literary references, artistic references...
The region is rich in cultural history - we are located within cycling distance of 5 major castles and there is a long-standing artistic and literary tradition in the area.
The village of Brehemont itself was once a port-town along the Loire and the local economy was based on hemp production for the fabrication of ropes and other maritime materials.
The traditional wooden, flat-bottomed fishing boats are particurarly evocative and symbolic of the village.

Brands we admire include Astier de Villatte, Paris
Cire Trudon, Paris
It may be necessary to come up with a fun/funky adaption of the brand for the pop-up restaurant space.
No Eiffel Tower symbols, fleur-de-lis or French flags please!
We look forward to hearing from you!
