First off, I would like to say that I'm considering first off of using this logo for my large signage outside the restaurant. However the image needs to be scalable so that I also may use it for my menu, website, print materials, etc.
I would like my image to convey a sense of Vintage Hawaii.
I have included several images, two of which I have grabbed off the internet and another that is a sketch I drew up. The first image consists of dolphins, flowers and a palm tree. I choose this image mainly for the Hawaii text. I envison a font similar to this arching across image.
The second image contains the text, "North Shore" at the top. I chose this image mainly to show the kind of weathered look I am searching for.
Both images are of the vintage type which I hope to include in my logo. I hope to get this weathered look along with the look as if my logo was painted on a wooden surface with the grain lines.
The third image is my sketch of my general idea. I don't have professional tools to work with and neither the professional skill of creating something useful so I'm sorry. I hope, like I mentioned above, that the Hawaii text will be in some type of vintage script type of font, arching rather than straight, while the Grill portion in more of a block font.
I was thinking maybe two to three flowers (hibiscus, plumeria, bird of paradise) would be nice along with a palm tree perhaps. And some big, green, leafy leaves (ti leaves, banana leaves, etc.) around.
I hope this is useful. If there's any one thing I'm really looking for in the design is this vintage look. If you google image vintage hawaiian signs you will get a feel of what I'm looking for.
Thanks for your help and I look forward to all of your amazing proposals.
