Feel... Fast, Fun, Adventure, Inspired, Global, Outdoors, Active, Engaged, Connected, Young.
We do not plan on using "Center for Global Leadership" in the text for the logo.
Logo text will be "CGL". May incorporate "CGL" into the logo itself or logo may be stand-alone next to "CGL".
Logo needs to be clean and simple for embroidery on shirts, jackets, backpacks, tents, etc. In short, easily stitched design is imperative.
Logo will also be used on website, stationary, and print materials.
Logo needs to be equally effective in color and black & white (perhaps only one color). Since the environment is one of our passions, "green" may be an ideal color (probably not extremely dark green.)
Do not want logos with people holding hands around the globe look.
Final product will be both camera-ready vector files (eps) and jpeg.
Just added - additional feedback for designers. I don't want to limit creativity, but I felt like I was giving the same feedback to designers. Perhaps the following will help provide a picture of our organization.
We run our programs in places with mountains, rivers, and oceans. Incorporating those features into design may make sense.
Ripple effect... Water ripple in pond may make sense.
True North... We try to help young people find their individual path in life. Perhaps some version of a compass might work.
