How director 1 started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our charity has breastfeeding mothers who collect their milk at home (4.5 L) and then bring it to the milk bank. The milk is pasteurized, tested for bacteria and then dispensed to Neonatal Intensive Care Units throughout Alberta and other parts of Canada.The moms are screened by the milk bank as well as their physicians and have 5 blood tests before they are approved. The milk literally saves sick and fragile babies -some weighing 1 lb. Milk is only available by prescription.
Our tag line is "every precious drop counts". I don't want this included in the logo design as the package would be too bulky with the logo & name.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
Our logo must be professional (addressing the health care industry), but it must be appealing to potential milk donors, financial donors - the industry is quickly growing. The logo can be a little fun and appeal to children/babies - but not silly. The name can be incorporated into the logo or not. Colors must be pantone and the logo must be able to be reproduced on a shirt. Simple is good. (No more than 3 colors please. We are a charity and can't afford the costs of reproducing lots of colors). Current logo's which I find appealing are 1) The Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation 2) Big Brothers Big Sisters 3) Childrens Hospital Colorado. please don't use a similar logo to 1)Medolac 2) The International Milk Bank. They are for profit milk banks and we don't want to be associated with them.
Milk bank donors are healthy, caring, conscientious women who want to help babies in need. Often they are nursing their own baby and have surplus milk. Women who donate their milk are not financially compensated – they donate because they know their milk can improve the health of sick and fragile babies.
Who Receives Human Donor Milk?
Because there is a limited supply of donor human milk, it is only available by prescription. This ensures the milk goes to babies who are in greatest need. The more human milk women donate, the more we are able to meet the demand for all babies.
Human donor milk will be provided for:
•babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
•babies who are failing to thrive on formula
•children and toddlers with life-threatening diseases or conditions
•multiple birth babies whose moms can’t keep up with the milk required to nourish their infants
•babies of mothers whose milk isn’t suitable for consumption due to disease or prescription medications that pass through the milk
