Hi everyone, this is my first post here so apologies if I violate any rules or etiquette.
I’m an in-house designer working on a logo for our new restaurant, a Japanese barbeque/steak house. The goal is to look high end yet inviting. I’d like some feedback on the general direction and how the elements are working together. The logo is a kanji seal using the Japanese characters for the restaurant name. Is the square kanji seal or round more appealing/appropriate?
I was thinking of using the solid kanji on light backgrounds and the outlines on dark backgrounds.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
