We need an updated logo for our east coast (usa) regional Christian church association.
East Coast Conference
We need an updated logo for our east coast (usa) regional association - our name is East Coast Conference, and our new slogan centers in the word "MOVE". We say we are "a movement of God"; we'll use the word MOVE as an acronym for four key aspects of our mission. I'm looking for a logo that would speak to east coast people - maybe a nautical motif like a racing sailboat bending in the wind, showing it moving briskly under the force of the wind. Putting a cross on the sail might be a good addition, as well as some way of showing an urban skyline. We work in 12 east coast states from Virginia to Maine. Our existing logo is a colonial church steeple with a cross on top (you can find it at http://www.eastcoastconf.org); we want something that speaks both to non-church participants as well as something that would connect with people who already belong to a congregation. It will be used on our website, business cards, stationery, brochures; we need something that works both in color and in a black and white print setting.
We're an affiliate of the Evangelical Covenant Church - they have a logo you can find at http://www.covchurch.org - it looks like four people facing each other. We may want to include that somehow in our design.
The contest ends Friday afternoon, April 18. We'll make a decision about the winning entry on Monday afternoon (EDT) in the US, on April 21.
- Item 1...A classic yet contemporary feel
- the word MOVE is key to our future concept
- red, yellow, black and white could be integrated into the color scheme in a sailboat (shows multi-cultural identity)
- In spite of the complexity described above, I want the logo to be more subtle than dramatic.
