Several years ago, my dear friend Madeleine, had a business distributing unique tea blends to local shops in her hometown of Carmel, California. Madeleine has a darling Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Emma, who is her constant companion. Emma was the inspiration for the idea to make tea infused dog biscuits and call them Tea Bonz of Carmel. I always thought it was a great idea with an even greater name but for one reason or another it never happened. Recently, I decided to ask her if she was still interested in starting up the business. She was indeed and we decided to work together to make it happen! I offered to help by designing a logo and website and we are both working on developing recipes. We plan to use organic ingredients and incorporate teas such as, decaffeinated green tea and rooibos powders, and chamomile, which have the same health benefits for dogs as for humans. Taste tests will be done on our dogs as well as our dog's friends in our respective neighborhoods and we hope to finalize some yummy recipes within the next few weeks, just in time for the holidays!
Package design is in the works and this is my first idea for a logo. I'd love to get some input on the logo as well as a vote on whether the spelling should be Bonze, Bonz, or Bones. Please post your response in the Comment area at the end of this post. Thank you!
