**IMPORTANT PINTEREST LINKS** -- I put together 2 Pinterest boards with strong images, symbols, and themes I enjoy. This Pinterest board entitled "Imagery Inspiration" covers the look and feel of what I'd like the imagery and words to convey: http://pin.it/TzCGHQ- ... This board entitled "Typography Inspiration" communicates the basic look I imagine the typography having: http://pin.it/k4hjASf
**Note on the imagery**: You do not have to incorporate every single one of these Pinterest images, symbols, or themes. However, I strongly suggest you consider combining one or more of the symbols together. The following is a list of the symbols/imagery/brand values found on the Pinterest Imagery board:
Purpose/Direction (symbolized by TRUE NORTH or a COMPASS), Challenge/Overcoming (symbolized by MOUNTAINS or HEART), Resilience/Strength (symbolized by a STAG or RAM or TREE), or surprise me with an idea for a symbol representing any of these values of your own :)
As an example of what I am thinking, you could merge some of the symbols like "True North" in the form of a compass or arrow pointing north, then combine it somehow with a Mountain, or Stag, Tree, Ram, or Heart as long as it didn't cheapen the primary image.
Alternatively, you could just create a powerful symbol that effectively communicates the value of "True North" and leave it at that. A very well-drawn symbol of something pointing to a "True North" or an image of a "Compass" or "Stag" or any of the other symbols could be enough on their own without the need for any abstraction.
**Note on the typography**: I do enjoy strong, bold typography as you can see on the Pinterest typography board. I am also open to other directions like the ones included on that board. And I would love to explore the idea of making the "M's" in Mountain Movement look like mountains very subtly. You certainly do not have to do so, especially if it takes away from the rest of your artwork. Just a thought to help improve your chances.
**MORE DESIGN INFORMATION can be found in the category below called "Is there anything else you would like to communicate to the designers?**
Also, I am interested in an on-going project based relationship with a quality designer or multiple designers!
About the Mountain Movement:
The Mountain Movement is a tribe built to empower people to give up the life they have and go after the life they are capable of living. We have both in-person experiences and online digital training to help people "Find their mountain and climb it with us."
Our target demographic is 25-34 male/female, and 35-44 male/female is our secondary. The group is typically college educated and actively looking for a fresh jump start to their sense of purpose and direction. They are interested in being tested, stretching their goals in their career in their existing role inside of a company, or possibly opening a new business with a double bottom line -- a life of meaning/purpose for others, as well as profitability/achievement for themselves.
Members of the tribe are taught to find their "True North," specifically by choosing a project to impact a group of people who may be less fortunate than them. A project like this could include, but not be limited to, helping teach a group of teenagers from a lower income community how to start a business. They are then tasked to find a way to leave that group better than they found them through their participation in the program.
We must be able to see and measure the impact in real-world time and space. It's also not just a donation/fundraising project, some form of relationship and mentorship must occur.
We also request they do not share they took this project on because of the Mountain Movement if media sources ask them. We want to do our best to be silent professionals and do not need the credit. Failure to do so may keep them from participating in future programs.
They will do all this while simultaneously working to become more fit than they've ever been, more financially stable and free, learning to be more confident, persuasive, and influential, and continually finding new ways to have a sense of contribution to the world with what they do with their lives. Effectively, we help them become the best version of themselves possible.
A few of our core values are in creatively overcoming circumstances and difficulties, being resilient when knocked down, learning new skills as early and as often as possible, and taking personal responsibility for one's life to live with no excuses. They are taught to use creativity, frugality, and highly effective communication to solve problems quickly, how to have and maintain their integrity and a sense of purpose, as well as to seek out what matters most to them.
