This client is a website for men, women and couples featuring tasteful erotica in the form of Fine Art & Glamor nude photos & videos in members only galleries, as well as a large free public area with erotic stories, essays & articles, free e-cards, screen savers, an online shopping area and a newsletter.
The clients wants a logo that reflects the tasteful, upscale theme of the site and their tag line: "Grace and Beauty: A Celebration of Sensuous Living". The site is not a "porn" site, although is does feature nudity and moderately explicit material, but is very softcore compared to a typical "porn site".
The target audience for this campaign includes men, women and couples interested in well written erotic stories, very polished and artistic nude photos and videos, and a place to shop for erotica & adult products that feels classy and elegant.
Very "Upscale" is the idea... Eroticism on the order of "Cirque du Soleil" type production, rather than "Barnum & Bailey", if you get the idea.
The majority of members are better educated hetero men, & couples, as well as a significant lesbian population.
*** Note*** If you are offended by tasteful nudity, or adult themed material, then please stop here. It is not the client's wish to upset or offend anyone. Thank you for your interest.
