I need two things:
First, an ART NOUVEAU logo for 'BESPOKE ARCHIVE.' This is for an online archive of antique paper.
Secondly, a design/mock-up for an e-commerce website, also Art Nouveau.
Attached are images for general inspiration. Here are some key points:
1: I want this to be traditional European art Nouveau like the images. Not American (craftsman, etc.).
2: I want the design to be elegant - NOT over the top. While the images attached are the correct style, they are very complicated. I am looking for art nouveau like this, but refined and smooth, not crazy and in your face. I want a logo and design that I am proud of and for it alone to draw people in.
3: I would like for there to be some iconic element to this other than text and shapes. A woman, a cat, whatever. Since this is an archive with the focus being paper, that could be a part as well. A cat sitting on stacks of paper, for example (just a thought, I am open to anything).
4: I do not need any programming. Once the site mockup is designed, I will need you to be able to chop the image up and give it to my programmer in the different pieces. We are probably looking at 3 or 4 pages. A homepage, a category home page and an individual item page, for example.
5: Art Nouveau is not for any designer. It will be important for me to see that you understand and can work well with the style.
