9 Cranes Inn
This new Seattle bed & breakfast offers four guest rooms in a Craftsman-style house in one of the city's walkable neighborhoods. It will attract guests who appreciate quality, comfort, and maybe a surprise or two. We strive to be kind of an urban base camp for travelers visiting on their own, or coming to see friends and family who live here.
While the property is an older home, there will be no doilies and few precious antiques for guests to worry about breaking. Their stay is about modern conveniences and current Seattle style. Innkeepers are well traveled and relatively intelligent, normal people, yet enjoy slightly off-beat pursuits. We will be as friendly or as hands-off as guests like -- providing conversation, directions, restaurant and sightseeing suggestions, or just leaving them to come and go as they please if that's all they want.
The name -- 9 Cranes Inn -- comes from a piece of art that will grace the inn's living room, and is reinforced by the many positive concepts that cranes symbolize in varied cultures. The particular artwork is a Chinese embroidery textile of nine red-crowned cranes all facing one another (see attached file). We do NOT necessarily expect the logo to mirror this.
Adults from across North America and around the world who enjoy travel and socializing. The hope is that they also have a sense of humor and enjoy some quirkiness or at least the unexpected. Income level will be moderately high. Their reasons for coming to Seattle will be varied -- visiting friends and family, sightseeing, or on business.
We would like the logo to be of equal height and width -- whether square, circular, or whatever.
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo.
Colors are welcome and expected, but the logo must also work in black and white. Therefore, no gradations.
Final version will be:
1. Created entirely in vector art (create outlines for type). Needs to be scalable.
2. Create logo in CMYK and black and white
3. Final product must be usable for web and print. (vector and layered .psd)
