The hunters lodge is situated 80km directly North of Gaborone, Botswana (hence the name).
We are fortunate to have a number of trophy species, the kudu, gemsbok (also known as oryx), eland and sable. All have distinct and ornate horns. Please use any one of these animals/horns in the logo.
We envisage an 'emblem' type logo, i.e. both text and picture.
Of course we are open to your creative expertise, but as a starting point, we had in mind stylized horns only or head & horns. Yes, sounds cliche, so if you've got a new twist on it we're very open to exploring it!
Preferably designed so that the logo could be mirrored / reversed, ie wouldn't matter if printed facing left or right.
We would like for the logo to embroider well on apparel and print on merchandise.
A hunting expedition means many things to different people. We would like our message to evoke the great African outdoors, as grueling as it is beautiful, and to celebrate the magnificent creatures we hunt, from tracking to shooting to gutting to eating to tanning as a memento of the whole adventure.
We hope our brand will communicate our sincerity and authenticity, and that we give more than just game shooting, we give the hunt.
We've attached some photos of the animals and lodge for you to get a feel of what we do. We've also found some artwork and would like to share some thoughts.
Eland Artwork - a bit too clinical and cold, but we like the way it captures the particular curves and growth pattern of the eland horns.
Kudu Artwork - the bottom-center with the horns splayed to the sides in an abstract way gives another option to explore
Gemsbok - the top-center captures the gemsbok's trademark 'eye-mask' very well.
We're not fixated to these, just our amateur first steps in this process.
We hope this project captures your imagination and look forward to working with you on this wild project!
