Cigar Tourism http://www.cigartourism.com
I am the owner of Cigar Tourism. We offer guided trips to Central America and the Caribbean for cigar enthusiasts. I am passionate about living well, and really appreciate the early 1900s styles of cigar-box art.
Our culture is professional, and focused on providing a beautiful experience that you can touch, see, smell and hear. We want our products to convey emotion and a sense of a different time and place.
Our target audience is 30-60 year old professionals, mostly men, who want a taste of paradise. They are medium to high income and romanticize nostalgia and the classic Cuban colonial style.
Please feel free to use your creativity.
I have attached some old art from cigar boxes to give you an idea of what I am looking for. I am imagining a design that has water, beach, and palm trees at its base. Perhaps an old cruise ship on the water as you see in the examples. Very importantly I would like an airplane, an older model, to fly across the image.
In some text that conveys movement and flow I would like it to say Cigar Tourism across the image. This should be rather large.
I would like the whole image to be cohesive. No single item should stand out as separate. Having said that, the text "Cigar Tourism" should be very easy to read against whatever background you use.
Feel free to construct the image in the dimensions you like but I have a preference for a 4:3 ratio. The image should be scaleable so that it can be used in many different ways from large uses on posters to small web-based uses.
Please see the attached samples for ideas and a general style that I like. Other than that, please feel free to be creative. If you come up with something that I have not included but that you like, that is great. I am open to suggestions. The most important thing is to convey the company name and the idea of escape to Caribbean paradise.
