We are soon to open an historic small town Bakehouse as a restaurant and guesthouse. We are renovating the circa 1938 building with its huge old bakers oven in a modern rustic style, incorporating old jetty timber for verandah posts, recycled red bricks for paving and an eclectic mix of pre-loved furniture and fittings. We will be serving tasty wood fired food with locally sourced ingredients.
We wish to incorporate our antique black rooster as our symbol, based on a wrought iron sculpture/chandelier which will feature prominently at the entry of the building. The exact pose of the rooster is not important as long as it is our rooster being used. We know it is difficult to see from the photographs but we are sure a talented designer will figure it out as we have managed to draw our own version of it (although we have fattened ours up a bit to make it more visually appealing). We are uncertain if we prefer silhouette or feathered look for the rooster. Will depend on overall design. If feathered keep it simple. We do suggest the rooster to be drawn with one foot only, less complicated and pleasing to the eye.
This logo will be applied to our signage, advertising, staff uniforms, menus and packaging of saleable products etc.
Our target market is a mix of locals and tourists as we are based in a popular tourism location famed for wine and a pristine natural environment. We have found while researching for our mood board we seem to like logos that belong to Bars, rather than restaurants which creates a relaxed kind of ambience.

Below are some photographs of our rooster, our drawing and a font example we quite like. Thank you to everyone who submits entries for our competition, please read the brief thoroughly. We will give feedback for the first three designs from each designer after that we will have to move on as we are on a strict schedule. All the best, the BakeHouse '38 team
