Vince of penstudio submitted several designs for our logo, and each one was a strong contender. In the end, he designed a logo that responded very specifically to the creative brief and also had a stylish, sophisticated look. He provided even more files than we requested, so we have a complete array of logo formats to use. Really great designs!
How J. Crittenden started their logo design journey
Charleston VIP Magazine
I am starting a magazine in Charleston, SC called Charleston VIP that will feature party photos from the grandest galas, socials and philanthropic events in our community. The publication will entice readers with stories of the history of Charleston, first class views, and special interest sections.
The magazine will be a monthly publication and readers and "social butterflies" will be anticipating the arrival each month to find photos of themselves out and about in the city of Charleston and surrounding areas.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The readers will be approx 60% Female to 40% Male, average household income of $50,000+ that are interested in art, design, volunteerism, social scenes, and hosting parties.
They shop at high end boutiques and gift shops and are members of at least one philanthropic organization.
There are no other publications in the Charleston area related to these topics and events.
I am looking for a classy, sophisticated logo that will catch the eye of a consumer or reader!
I would like "Charleston" to be some sort of scroll lettering, a little more formal... smaller print, but definitely a unique font!
I would like "VIP" to be bold and larger, maybe a sort of block letter with a shadow, etc.
And then "MAGAZINE" maybe in all caps under the title Charleston VIP.
All black and white logo that will be changed with each cover of the magazine depending on the cover photo, season, etc.
