Hi Odinus,My friend Audrey referred me to you. You did a Rebrand America and World Bank Group/IMF Young Professionals etc...I absolutely love your work and I would like you to please help me design a logo for a business I am working on. I am so excited about this opportunity and would like a logo - something that shows a communal vibe, Modern Africa, and something that has to do with Baobab which is also called the tree of life. I have a new idea for a business I just started. The Baobab Table - It's a home-based dinner club where strangers can come and dine on my 16-seater repossessed wood table while telling stories and sharing fusion African food. It is a tree of life because all parts of the tree are useful in human consumption and it also stores up water which it feeds itself whenever there is a drought. This tree is very present in African culture as elders in villages tell stories to children under the moonlight, people have ceremonies under the trees, people eat their meals under the tree so the symbolism in this name is something that I would like to portray. Food is life and a baobab is the tree of life so my table will be a pinnacle of life to everyone who eats at the Baobab Table (my table)...the table of life.
Can you please google “baobab tree Africa” and look at images so you can have a sense of what this tree is about.
I have a few ideas, let me know what you think:
1. The Baobab Table written in a funky way in plain text with the “T” in Table like this “T” attached below: (see photo attached)
2. The Baobab Table with an African cast Iron pot incorporated in the text. See link for example of pot style [url removed, login to view] - I dont know how we can incorporate this into the design…any ideas?

3. Baobab tree shape incorporated in the logo
Any ideas you have will be so helpful as I will like something that shows community around food, storytelling, Africa, Baobab, life...
Let me know if you have any questions.
