the white orchard

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

“LLO Logo Design”

This logo design is something that I’ve been working on off and on for the past few weeks. A small-town, traditional business, LLO is an apple orchard offering seasonal services and in need of a permanent logo that can be applied across multiple platforms and promotional materials.

I wanted to keep this design simple and steer the color scheme away from the traditional red and green orchard combination (too Christmas-y), aiming instead for something more modern and versatile, keeping in mind the product (apples, primarily), the company name, and the company values (small-town traditional, modern, but not too edgy). What do you think?
