mentalacrobatics ran a logo and business card contest and chose a winning design they loved.
UZIMA Foundation is a youth centred organisation with over 25,000 members spread across East Africa. Uzima Foundation is committed to youth empowerment for the improvement of the quality of the lives of the youth themselves, their families and communities. This empowerment is primarily done through youth groups which are formed by the youth themselves.
Youth between 10 – 30
We want a logo that will engage the youth of Africa. It should speak to their innovative spirit, enthusiasm, energy, openness, fair play, courage and optimism.
The logo should include the African Acacia Tree. This is a tree with a tall trunk with the umbrella-like leaves and branches on top. Examples here: http://goo.gl/LMmZb
The part of the logo with the tree should be extracted as a square image to be used as a favicon and a profile image for Twitter and Facebook.
Organization name in a stylised type/font becomes the logo.
An image or shape that is easily recognizable is used to represent your business.
Representing trends from the internet including gradients, rounded corner etc.
