We are launching a new awards scheme focusing on products and services for the early years education sector (private daycare and preschools). We require a logo that will appear alongside award-winning products and services in our magazine (Teach Early Years), and be given to winners to place on product packaging (e.g. LEGO).
We would like the logo to be playful / represent the early years sector, but without being overly childlike - we want it to appeal to an adult audience and to maintain a businesslike feel.
We would like the logo to incorporate yellow, which is the main colour of our magazine's masthead.
We would like to have the option of including either 3, 4 or 5 stars with the logo.
edit: the stars should represent the value of the award achieved, meaning that we the winner would receive an award with either 3, 4 or 5 stars. These don't have to be incorporated into the body of the logo, but can be alongside/ underneath etc.
