A new club being developed in Harlem, New York is looking for a logo. The club plans to not only serve food, but provide patrons with various nights dedicated to different styles of dance from hip-hop to latin. Above the club, there will be an area that can be rented out for parties.
Note: The full name is "The Harlem Supper Club"
I am helping the owners of the club with the branding of their new establishment. Part of this process is to develop a strong logo and subsequently, to create additional materials. It is my hope that the chosen designer will be given more opportunities to work on everything from stationary to business cards. There will be additional money provided for these projects.
We are looking for a logo that includes the full name of the club. We would like to consider a possible "stamp" or icon that could work in conjunction with the name or on its own as a symbol representing the establishment.
Feel free to explore more retro ideas from the age of the Cotton Club and Supper Clubs of the past. If you have a modern interpretation, that would be great as well.
Nothing cliched. Also, nothing too playful.
