Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

What is the exact name you would like in your logo?

The Saucy Taco
We want our name to be either all CAPITAL LETTERS or all LOWER CASE LETTERS and in ALL the SAME FONT & COLOR.

The slogan for our name is "Don't Hate, Marinate"
We want the slogan to be directly underneath our name.


**** WE WANT THE GRAPHIC IN THE TEXT*****

(this means somehow find a way to put the logo inside of the words “THE SAUCY TACO” – an idea would be to make the “U” into a taco or to make the “Y” into a bottle of sauce – these are just ideas, and please think of your own.)


We are launching a new gourmet food truck in April. Our name, The Saucy Taco, is meant to have a dual meaning. The word saucy can literally refer to sauce (which we are going to have – our food cart will have an array of 20 different sauces for customers to chose from) however it can also refer to ‘sas’. The word saucy in British and American slang means sassy or sexy, somewhat having an attitude. Our idea is to give over an appetizing taco (and Mexican food in general) while humanizing the taco making it sexy and/or sassy while at the same time keeping it tasteful.

What is your industry?

Food and Beverage

What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

Appetizing, fun, exciting, sassy

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)

****WE WANT THE GRAPHIC IN THE TEXT*****

We are looking for a strong wordmark including a distinct and world class icon. The logo must replicate well in full color, and also in one color b+w & reverse. We want the logo to be simple yet stand out. We want the LOGO/GRAPHIC inside of the text.

*** WE WANT THE COLOR RED ***


Please try to stay away from primary colors if possible! There are MANY shades of red that can be used!!

Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

When we franchise we are going to expand to 4 Food Trucks.

We will have 4 ‘Saucies’ if you will—The Saucy Taco (Mexican Food), The Saucy Burger (American food), The Saucy Naan (Indian Food), and The Saucy Wonton (Chinese Food).

So whichever logo we pick has to be versatile and able to change with many different food groups so that when we expand it can be used accordingly. (ie—do not limit us to Mexican colors, like red yellow and green together, because will are not only doing Mexican food forever).

Does anyone want to try make a logo where the word 'TACO' is written and the 'O' is actually an aerial view of a bottle? That would be interesting.

Once again, Please see the materials we updated to get an idea of what we want when we say GRAPHIC IN TEXT. All of the logos that are titled "Graphic in text" are examples.

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone for being so patient with us throughout this process, especially as we have closed and opened our contest a few times, we are so grateful to everyone for contributing!

Design is certainly not our industry and it is actually through this process of people submitting entries that we are discovering more and more of what we want in our logo.

It has been fun and challenging reviewing all of these entries. Each one has their own unique twist and flare to it :)

We spent a lot of time reviewing entries the other night and really minimized our list. If your entry has 5 stars (which only about 20 out of 475 do) you're one of our favorites! We may still be collecting more or editing a few as well, so hold tight!

Once again, thank you everyone for working so hard on these, I know it's not easy but your effort shows <3

It has been fun and challenging reviewing all of these entries. Each one has their own unique twist and flare to it and all of you are SO talented it blows our minds!! :)

We spent a lot of time reviewing entries and decided on one that we felt was clear, could be seen far away, and had an iconic image incorporated into the text that worked with our name. Once again, you were all amazing artists, this designer just happened to capture the name a particular way!

**** IF your logo has 5 stars on it PLEASE message us your email address or comment on your design with your email address, we are selecting some logos to make t-shirts out of because we liked them so much and we will pay you for the design if we turn it into a t-shirt and we want to be fair and able to send you payment so send us your email!!*****

Once again, thank you everyone for working so hard on these, I know it's not easy but your effort shows <3
