We need a fresh, innovative and above all original logo for a gift/homewares company with a difference.
All the items we sell (many handmade and one-offs) are an unconventional mix of classic bohemian styles or striking contemporary to compliment/contrast.
We sell all sorts of things, from canvases of graffiti and landscapes, to hand-made cushions, jewellery and retro homewares like lighting, ashtrays...you name it...if it fits in with our range, we'll sell it, no matter what it is.
The following are examples of what we consider to be 'bohemian' in style:

http://www.escapeartist.com/efam/45/bohemia.gif (Like this a lot)
http://www.ragtimepiano.ca/images/bohemia.jpg (Bit dull for what we're after).
You should all knows what Retro means and is.
FYI Amici means "friends" in Italian.
The logo needs to be original. It needs to exude classic, quality and style, with (maybe) a modern twist.
We're an artistic company in many ways and the logo should reflect that also, though not literally by means of a paintbrush symbol or anything like that.
As long as it's easy to read, the logo could even encompass two different fonts or styles for each word (amici/bohemia). The writing used for the popular TV show "Bewitched" is also something we like, which could perhaps be used for just the word "Amici". Don't take that too literally though, this need not be the case and may not work well.
Remember, we sell brand new contemporary retro-style products and also things like classic old wire birdcages; the logo must reflect this mix of old and new somehow and not give the customer the false impression that the company is of one or the other nature only.
