We need a family brand which can be adapted for sub-brands. In the pictorial mark it is important to transport emotion/well-being AND a professional and medical approach. So not too harsh, not too technical a mark but still reflecting a medical, professional and high-end approach.
IMPORTANT: We have quite a lot suggestions for marks reflecting mountains already. So I'd be happy if we got more suggestions in a medical/research/educational direction (keep in mind the emotion). Treating patients and the well-being of those is our main focus which is true for the research, education and applied medicine brands! Mark should be elegant, clean, professional, not too bold in colours.
As we are not sure yet, how many sub-brands we'll have in the end, I'd either focus on one symbol for all OR if it's doable, take three forms/symbols reflecting the main focuses of research, education and applied health care. One of those would be fitting for any sub-brand.
We definitely want a (abstract) figurative mark for the logo which is adapatable and recognizable for the sub-brands.
From the designs we received so far (thanks to the designers who contributed, great ideas amongst them) we figured we like the elegant lines rather than the thick/bold ones. In terms of colours: not too dazzling, should reflect a serious business. Different colours welcomed, but more subtle ones. Please avoid a cross as a symbol, we figured it's more for a pharmacy/hospital.
Also: You might wanna try an approach where the main objectives: research, education and rehabilitation/health care are included. Probably difficult to combine with nature elements and we are not at all decided which approach is better. Sorry, it's a tricky request :-/
