I'm a solo business chick who's launching an online shop in erotica. Once I managed to get over the moral issues of selling sex toys, I realised it was an interesting and fun industry to be part of! There are a lot of online sex shops that are sleazy, offers pretty standard gear, makes you feel dirty when you buy from them, and sell some pretty nasty stuff. I'm launching something that's the complete opposite of that, and voila, Black Velvet was born. A classy sex shop offering a whole new pleasant shopping experience for good quality, safe adult erotica without feeling like you're going to hell! So I hope you have as much fun designing me a new logo as I do setting up my shop! Thanks! xoxo
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
My erotica shop is targeted at women - career driven women, housewives, the cheeky girl from next door, or the mum from PTA. Women who have the money to spend on a bit pleasure in the bedroom without feeling guilty. However, men may also browse this shop to buy a gift for her so he doesn't get told off for looking at sleazy sex shops online and making her feel like a cheap whore!
The url is blackvelvetboutique.co.uk (the site is not up yet so don't bother looking yet!)
I'd like an image that reflects the name 'black velvet' - something that feels nice, soft, smooth and warm just like the fabric and the colour. The theme I'm going for is burlesque. A burlesque dancer is clean cut, very sexy, beautiful, classy, mysterious, doesn't reveal everything and is glamourous.
This is exactly what I'd like my logo to convey.
Another reminder - nothing sleazy or any unsavoury images that directly make any reference to sex.
The font on the logo must be clear.
Require a logo in a format for print (t-shirts, stationary).
Require a logo in a format for online use.
Also require 2 versions of the same logo - one with the entire URL and one without. You can even drop the word boutique on the shortened version.
