How Colorado TechFair started their logo design journey
Colorado TechFair 2009
The Colorado TechFair is a state-wide technology fair created to 1. Promote the creative use of technology by schoolchildern and 2. Raise funds and awareness for the host organization OpenWorld Learning. We are a local nonprofit that hosts technology based afterschool programs for youth. We hope the fair will turn out to be a fun and engaging experience, and are looking for a logo that reflects that!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are targeting a varied audiance. The logo will need to be appealing to the students, 3-12 grade. I would like it to reflect some of the energy of OpenWorld Learnings color scheme, as the event is also to expand community awareness of the nonprofit (http://www.openworldlearning.org). Further though, we are marketing to businesses for sponsorhip and will be having a prestigious aray of host judges hopefully including Colorado governmental officials.
There are no set requirements. We will be using the logo everywhere from the website, to marketing materials, and blowing it up for banners the day of the event- so a high resolution is a must. I do not have any graphics software on my computer, so please include a format that is accessible from most computers.
Other than that, we would like a fun and creative logo that fits with the feel of the OpenWorld Learning logo!
