Kocamaar is a farm in Datça, located in south-west coast of Turkey. Our farm has olive & almond trees, but we are specialising not only in olive oil or almond and almond related products such as marzipan, etc. but also jams, tomato paste and hand made soaps... We will eventually have a wide range of products making use of various local produce .
We are going to sell our products through e-commerce only. Our audience is 25+ ABC1 city people (mainly Istanbul with 15 million city dwellers) looking for authenticity & naturalness in food shopping.
Datça's other name is Knidos in antique Greek, today it is famous with its olive & almond gardens & unspoiled wildlife.
Some extra info & What we have in mind*;
*we are adding this part not to limit the designers but to help them understand the concept of Datça.
1-One of its' symbols is "owl". Since it symbolizes the area we might want to use it as our logo. (but we want to see other alternatives as well, so don't limit yourself to an owl)
2-Famous quote about Datça by Strabon "God sends its most beloved people to Datça to have long lives".
3-Our production won't be organic but our products will be certificated as "good agricultural practices" & "slow food".
4- Useful info:http://www.datca.bel.tr/content/eng/history-datca
5- We want the name to appear as below;
"Kocamaar" is the name of the area where the farm is located, "Koca" means great, huge, monumental, mighty, wise. (It is a proper noun)
"Çiftliği" means "farm" in Turkish, Datça ,(the town where we are located) should appear as tagline below.
please note ,the Turksh letter "C" has a dot under it, and the letter "g" has a special sign above it. (Please check the Turkish alphabet while designing the words)
6- Words that should describe our logo; green, nature, tree, ecology, boutique, business, olive farm, Mediterranean/Aegean, healthy, slow food, agriculture, land, heritage, sunny, environment, happiness.
7- The feeling of Datça is very similar to the feeling that you get when you think of a farm in Tuscany for example... Slow life with taste....
