Southern Landscape Designs

Describe your company and organization and target audience

We design and build beautiful and functional outdoor environments according to our customers' needs and budget. We build both classic and modern landscapes from outdoor kitchens and living spaces, to stone retaining walls and inviting entrances. We have been based out of Vinings since 2006 and serve customers across Metro Atlanta. Your best outdoor life starts here.

The design should have the following

Want to have a classic feel to the logo - denote high end design without being too modern. Logo will be used on website, business cards, trucks and yard signs. Should be easily able to read given advertising/marketing is often seen in a hurry (truck in someone's yard doing work). Would like options of both long test (southern landscape designs, and SLD). Brand mark may include tree (beechtree, white oak) or have feeling of a path. But main focus should be on the text vs branded mark.

This logo will be used for

  • Online (Website, facebook etc.)
  • Print (business cards, letterheads, brochures etc.)
  • Merchandise (mugs, t-shirts etc.)
  • Signs (including shops, billboards etc.)

This design should not have this in the entries

Evergreen trees, clipart looking branded marks, should not be all lower case, should feel closer to an artitechtural design vs grassy landscape.

Colors to use in the design

Potential colors include: White, black, dark dark green, dark gray, dark gray/brown
Pantones I like:
Pantone Beluga 19-0405 Dark Gray Brown Poster
Bear Creek
