Contest Brief

Frederick Kirby is an Executive Chef and offers his services as a Private Chef/Cooking Classes and Catering (weddings/functions):
Please check out our business to gain an understanding of what we offer; [url removed, login to view]

We require a logo / business card design & letterhead design to rebrand our business.
We are looking for a less 'gimmicky' logo than our current design - please do not submit similar knife/fork designs or anything including chef icons (e.g. chef hat etc).

We are looking for 'Frederick Kirby' as a name to feature in a classy font and the name to be the main feature of the logo.
Please keep in mind Frederick's style of cuisine is fine dining and therefore the font/design needs to represent this.
Prefer oblong design logo but not limited to this shape (dislike oval/round).

COLOURS: Must include burgundy, black and white (IMPORTANT: We will not consider other colours).

Please consider a logo that will suit the background of our website. It will need to replace where the current logo is on our website.

Our logo needs to include the following wording:
Frederick Kirby
under the title: COOKING CLASSES / PRIVATE CHEF / CATERING

Business card needs to include:
Logo
[url removed, login to view]
email: info@[url removed, login to view]
phone: 0431 961 959
facebook logo required on the business card (please represent the facebook icon as per the traditional square facebook logo).

No design for the rear of the card please.

PLEASE NOTE: Please do not post a comment on our Facebook wall (our customers do not need to know we are rebranding yet) - this will automatically ensure your design is not selected - Thank you.

    Please kindly take the time to read the updated brief.
    Frederick's style of cuisine is fine dining and we would ask the font/logo represent this and demonstrate an element of class.

    Please understand we will only consider versions that include our chosen colours as per the brief.

    We REALLY do appreciate everyone's efforts and time taken to submit your interpretation.

    We look forward to selecting the logo we will proceed with at the end of the 7 day contest.

    Thanks again!

    Dear Ardiy and alkalifi,
    Your entries #37 #38 #39 and #42 are very identical to my entries ( #24 #28 #31 ).
    I'm sure that you two are very good designers and you will find another design,so please, withdraw them or change them.
    Thank you

      Good Afternoon,
      I can understand your frustration and do see the similarity.
      I thank each of you for your designs however we will not proceed further with #24, #28, #31 or #37, #38, #39 or #42.
      Unfortunately they are not the style we are after, we are seeking a design that speaks class and not quite this style.

      Thanks again!
