Here is the gist:
We are looking for a logo for a new Indian Restaurant: Masala Box. It will be a tapas style restaurant serving a modern take on Indian cuisine. The logo would reflect this modernity.
The client is very opinionated about the aesthetic (it’s a family business) and so he has given me some criteria (you may need to do some research about what the Hindi symbolism means)
This is what he said of the attached sketch that he did (under attached files - image1.jpg)
"It will be a five color logo. The central coils are 'M' and 'B' blended to together in an 'aum' sign (will be red changing over to orange) the arches of 'm' along with the tapering end capture 'heart', the fingerlings are fire licks (which will be yellow)- there's a 'droplet' in the center which represents savitur or the supreme radiance that represents enlightenment-(it will be blue) On a macro level it looks like a palm or peacock feather both have indian connotations"
I met with the client and talked him out of doing something with 5 colors (unless a graphic design ninja thinks otherwise). Feel free to give it a try beyond his sketch - he is open to ideas. Ideally we would go for a less ethnic and more abstract, modern vibe (like the attached Ganesha or Vanakkam logo.)
I am open to conversation - please email me for any questions or concerns.
