Management system for bars and nightclubs. It has nothing to do with bouncers or security. Think of it as OpenTable for nightlife. From booking your night out, to the whole management of the reservation, table seating, check in, etc.
Here are some example of companies in that space:
Use those examples to understand the industry we are in, but don't use them as examples of designs I like, because I don't like their logos. To see logos I like, see logos attached in my brief (airbnb, squarespace, etc.)
The main thing is that I want to be able to use an icon (shape, letter, image, etc.) ALONE without the wording for things like iPhone app icon, promotional material, etc.
I want it to be flexible enough that the icon and word look good together, but I can also separate them. (again think of dropbox, spotify, airbnb, squarespace, etc.)
