Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

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

B&B Interiors

What is your industry?

Other

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

We are Construction Management/General Contractors. We manage commercial construction projects in the New Jersey and New York City markets, specifically Manhattan. Our company name is B&B Interiors. We work with some high-end clients such as The Peninsula Hotel, the Trump Organization and private schools. The partners love to work hard and play hard. The partners ski/snowboard, travel and enjoy the outdoors.. We wish the logo to have grey/green colors, see attached image of the mouse. We want to avoid any logo that has a NYC background. We want the logo to be smart, evocative and fluid.

The name of the company may change one day so I would rather not put the name as the main logo as this example: SAA’s logo http://www.saaia.com/layouts/containers/saaia/i...

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

Image + Text

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

We are drawn to the Meta font. The Meta font is used in the Herman Miller logo: http://logok.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/her...

Brief updates

A few updates that may help you with the creation of our logo!

Thank you for assisting us.

a) We do not want the letters B&B to be part of the main image of the logo. We wish the logo to be separate from the company name. For example, Symantec's logo is separate from the company's name and not integrated as one. See: http://v12ntoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10.... Or see: http://www.donbowie.com/wp-content/uploads/2011...

b) We really like the use of negative space.

c) Both partners are high educated with both bachelor's and master's degrees.

d) As construction managers, we do not actually 'build' the building/space. But rather we hire and manage a team of professionals (carpenters, electricians, painters, steelworkers) who build it.

Some ideas that may help you with the design! Thanks!

e) We do work in NJ and NY. There is a major river, the Hudson river, that separates both states. We want to draw attention to our ability to work in both states.
f) We like the concept/idea, that when a job is finished, it has the B+B Interiors "stamp" on it. We have been drawn to the Japanese Hanko, or 'name stamp'. Google "Japanese Hanko" for an explanation.
g) Tom, our president, has wanted to run a construction company since he was a child. There is a photo in our office of Tom as a child and his father beside him on a construction site. Perhaps this image as a silhouette would work.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, we DO NOT want the letters B+B to be part of the main image of the logo. The name of the company may change one day so I would rather not put the name as the main logo.

Hey Everyone,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer would prefer to NOT see their business name in the logo. They would prefer to see image based logos so please start submitting some new ideas with an image based logo.

Thank you!
