We like the gradients in this design. Many of our past designs have included gradients, and we would like the finished product to have this too.
Our logo needs to include at least 6 saturated colors that are appropriate for a winter event. Our themes for this year's event is "vision" and "forward." We want to encourage our guests to think about what the future of their organizations will look like.
The design should include graphics of tools that are used to chart a course or draw a map. Designs should include at least one but no more than two of the following tools: Telescopes, binoculars, drafting compasses, maps, protractors, pencils/pens, sextants, or astrolabes.
The design should evoke the concepts of "future," "navigation," and finding your way. We do not want to see designs with images or outlines of people. The objects themselves should communicate the ideas.
