Mercurey Club (yes, it's spelled that way!)
Looking for a logo for our social club known as the Mercurey Club. The "mission" of the Mercurey Club is to provide a bi-monthly gathering of fabulous people (read: hip gents and sassy ladies) to indulge in what we deem to be the finest things of life: great wine, delicious food, and compelling conversation among friends old and new. Further, our values encompass openness, humor, inclusion, sociability, and the implicit zest for life. Snoots need not apply.
The logo is really just for our "internal" use, primarily on our club website.
While wine is a big part of the club, we DO NOT want anything specifically-related to wine in the logo (like grapes, wine glasses, etc.)
Mercurey is the name of a wine region in Bordeaux, France, which was named after the god Mercury/Hermes.
Mercury was the messenger of the gods, and is often portrayed with wings on his feet. We do like the concept of wings being subtly incorporated into the logo, but it's not necessarily a requirement.
While we'd likely be happy with the logo just featuring the name "Mercurey Club" in a cool typeface, having one or two graphic elements is also interesting to us, especially if they can help capture the feeling of our mission statement above (hip, fun, etc.)
