Mimenta Roos

Mimenta Roos Painting

Oil on canvas board 50cm x 40cm

When I started the business, I designed a great logo and registered a domain name. My web host, MD Webhosting, stuffed up the account and I couldn't get the domain name back, in time for the launch. In desparation, I registered a new name at the last minute, revised the site design and launched as Mimenta.com with my new site hosts; Bluehost. I realised that I had everything except a logo. I wanted something that said 100% Australian, without boasting and grabbed a painting I had just finished, scanned it and turned it into a banner and a logo.

This is the original picture and why it came to be called "Mimenta" Roos.

Do you reckon it's subtle enough?
