Company or website name

Xenia Gifts

Describe your company and organization and target audience

The company is a used gift card marketplace. We buy unwanted, unused gift cards from regular consumers, and then resell them at a discounted price than their store value.

The company is referred to as simply "Xenia" (not "Xenia Gifts") across all communications channels, and not "XG".

The design should have the following

I'm open to anything and everything, but do not feel like you must include "Xenia" into your logo. Xenia is the ancient greek concept of hospitality, which revolved around guest/host relationships and gift giving. That's the connection to the company, but feel free to ignore it.

Here are some of my preferences, although none are absolute:
- Would prefer something 2D with as few colors as possible (preferably 1, up to 3).
- Would prefer a logo which fits inside a square box (or rectangle close to it); that is, it can be any shape or form but would prefer a logo I could use as an icon on a mobile application, and not something very long
- Strongly prefer simplicity

Some possible ideas are logos related to nice looking gift boxes or gift cards, but no preference here.

This logo will be used for

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

This design should not have this in the entries

I am not looking for a design which simply says "XG", but using that into the design is fine.
