https://www.dropbox.com/s/t6d5eu2ccy96gf0/logos...

What I like about each logo: 1. Cafe Zen = Simplicity & Colour
2. Organico = The mix of traditional and modern style
3. Buffaleaux = The rustic feel and I love the icon
4. Zest = The simplicity and colour
5. Abel&Cole = The font and texture
6. tonys =The colour combo and the image integration
7. Paper cup = The font
8. Graze = The simplicity
9. The Chaai = Logo and font

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

We would love a logo that encompasses the rustic warmth of an organic cafe with a hint at the fresh juices and health elements.

We would hate a logo that is too futuristic, too vibrant, or that just emphasizes the juicing element.

We would also like an image/icon to be part of the logo too.

I've just added a logo that I knocked up very quickly a while ago to illustrate more of the direction of where the design needs to go. It is certainly not perfect, but should give designers more of a directive as to were we would like it to go.

I've just added an image FILE 3, that shows you what the feel and design of the place is going to be. Hopefully this will help inspire the logos.

Lots of texture: wood, brick, glass, slate etc. Logo has to compliment this.

We'd like to also invite designers to consider the latest image attachment, a logo we particularly like called Natural Kitchen. The designs so far have been great, but we also want to see if designers can create a minimalist logo that takes inspiration from Natural Kitchen too, with a simple striking font and iconic emblem.

I want to invite a more entries as no one nailed the logo design entirely. Many people are taking only inspiration from each other, and I want to rule out the use of a coffee cup now entirely. Coffee is certainly not of the major products of the place.

I also want to see if we can get a good mix of classy and cool in the same logo, like the Jamie's Italian logo, that I will upload now to the brief so people can see what I mean.

It's got to be urban and cool in amongst the natural, rustic and earthy tones.

Let's see what a few more days can bring....
