Please see the images uploaded above for examples of logos that appeal to me.
I am looking for an image that is clean, contemporary, suggestive of nature, but that also suggests connecting with people and community.
More symbolic and graphic than literal, though organic shapes or images can be included.
I tend to like logos that have a 3-D quality to them, that occupy space - using shading, drop shadows, or negative space to communicate an image (please see examples)
The examples I have shared communicate the natural aspect primarily through plants -- that is OK and could work, but please also consider flocks or birds or fish, animal shapes, shapes suggesting ecosystems, etc.
This is an emerging field that is bringing two elements together (nature+people), so I am interested in images that communicate that synergy. Interlocking shapes, images that morph from nature-inspired to community-inspired, two elements joining and informing each other -- all would be good starting places.
Maybe something that looks like a flock of birds or school of fish that cast a shadow that suggests a group of people...? (a la MC Escher)
Also consider starting with classic forms from sacred geometry, such as the fibonacci spiral or the vesica pisces symbol (you can google these to see images).
I am really open to a range of ideas, and would love to see lots of creative approaches!
There will be a website design to come, following the logo completion. The winning logo will be a primary element in the web design.
Thank you for jumping in!! This is an exciting new field and deserves the best talented minds.
