Slapp Creek Promotions-
Slapp Creek Promotions, or simply Slapp Creek, is a company whose roots are deeply planted in promoting and maintaining a lifestyle that values the simple pleasures of life. The inspiration for the company name comes from a remote area in the mountains of western Virginia where one can experience a peace and clarity that can only come from being close to nature. (It is also an unusual name and therefore, easy to remember!) Headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Slapp Creek’s essence naturally draws from sun, sea and sand and everything related to the ocean and to the beach culture.
Currently, Slapp Creek is focused on preserving the culture and history of Virginia Beach while, at the same time, creating and promoting new concepts, ideas and creations within the beach theme. This will be accomplished in numerous ways such as t-shirt design and production, promotional products development (stickers, etc.) and publishing (blogs, print material, etc.) Ideally, this concept can and will be duplicated in other regions that have long histories besides the Va. Beach area.
I am looking for a logo or design which captures the essence of Slapp Creek. I’m not looking for OBX kind of knock-offs, but something new, fresh and with more polish. We are in business to celebrate our roots, not exploit them. So, the design will reflect a laid back feel while also showing a degree of professional polish, like we’ve been around for a long time. We want to appear timeless.
Please view the logo references to generate some ideas. The logo references attached are from local companies that are highly recongnized and loved. I want my logo to blow their's out of the water. I am not looking for a recreated version of the logos by any means. I want something completely new and cutting edge. I am looking for great concept development fused with great design execution. I want the concept to be outside the box and able to draw immediate nostalgic and positive emotion.
