Rocky Mountain Rett Association (RMRA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and their families impacted by Rett Syndrome. We provide resources, engage in advocacy, education and awareness efforts, and raise funds to support the search for a cure and to run the Rett Clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Rett Syndrome is a debilitating neurological disorder. Children with the disorder are born without any signs of the syndrome, but they lose their ability to speak by the age of two. Then the children become profoundly disabled, requiring 24-hour assistance with every aspect of daily living.
What we are looking for:
- We feel like the current logo is a little dull, old-fashioned and we are missing any reference to our mission.
- Most Rett patients need a wheel chair, so it is a possibility to show a wheelchair (or another reference to being disabled), but please the KEEP GENDER NEUTRAL of the person sitting (although more girls are diagnosed with Rett Syndrome). Also, Rett patient cannot use their arms, so if you show them in a wheel chair, please make sure they do not use their arms to push the chair.
- We would like to see some versions without a mountain range.
- We want to see "Rocky Mountain Rett Association" in big letters, not just in small, but "RMRA" should still be very prominent.
Target audience is age 25+, more female than male. Since we are a charity, primary goal is to attract money through fundraising, but also have an educational and support component for families afflicted by Rett syndrome.
Overall there are not many organizations focusing on Rett Syndrome. We are located in the Rocky Mountain region, but we support every one and in fact every one with Rett Syndrome or Rett like diseases can visit the Rett Clinic at Children’s Hospital. The Rett Clinic is very unique since it offers multidisciplinary care in one convenient place – that means that patients can see up to 15 specialists in one afternoon in one convenient place and do not have to rush to different places for their appointments. We are also 1 – 5 years from a cure.
Update of brief 7/22/18: I just received feedback from the board of directors and they would like to see some different designs to be able to choose from a variety. Could you show us some logos without the wheel chair and instead more the "caring" or "support" idea. Potentially a family where mom and dad are embracing a child? Thank you!
