Me and my business partner (mother) are setting up a community interest company/not for profit/ social enterprise in our home town Macclesfield.
We will support local artists and craft makers in the town, helping to give all people and all abilities multiple selling arms in the war against mass produced super-store "art".
We have the future prospect of ecommerce, and supplying to independent shops in the UK. To cover the costs, we would ask members for a membership fee to cover the costs of running the business and nothing else. Future profits are rewarded to the town/charities/wildlife.
We are yet to establish a strong customer/artist base, we're hoping a good logo and a strong brand will help with first impressions.
We like the idea of using topography in the logo to resonate who we are and where we are. We like the idea of using a vintage appearance stamped/stencil font inside the shape of our town/borough. (Our ideas are formed on basis of very little knowledge in Graphic Design.)
We hope someone like-minded will read this post, appreciate our idea, and help us out!
