NOTE: Update 9.28.12 - color palette for 7 elements has been attached.
We would like a sophisticated and modern logo. Please, NO triangles, tsquares or any literal architectural tools. There are 7 separate exams that candidates take so we would like that represented in the logo, i.e. 7 elements or shapes. We prefer circles and softer edges to squares and angular design. PLEASE include 7 elements in to the design in some way, shape, or form.
The words Architect Exam Prep should be part of the logo design.
Colors: we prefer a lighter gray and darker gray as complimentary colors with one or two main colors, i.e. a lighter green and purple or possibly just a lighter green. Other colors could be a blue (lighter or darker).
Added: More color guidelines to use as a starting point for the designs;
lighter green #9BBB35
lighter gray #BFBFBF or a #676767
darker gray #4A4A4A or a #302c2d
instead of a lighter green, maybe a lighter blue #00aeef
these colors are not set in stone, but a starting point for you.
We like simpler logos but it should not be boring. also a little playfulness would be nice, but nothing hokey or cheesy. Our business is for young architects who are trained in design so the logo should communicate and relate to people who appreciate fine design.
We will be very active during this process in an effort to select the best logo that meets our needs and objectives.
Thank you for participating!
