All of the designer were great but the winning design included all the elements we had envisioned with extra artistic flair. We could not be happier and will proudly display our logo on official records as well as adcopy andall other materials. Great Work !!
How pbogaardtx started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
New World Academy
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The logo is a for an educational institution/school. New World Academy is an on-line virtual high school that allows students living outside the United States to attend virtual classes (through distance learning) and earn credits towards a United States High School diploma. This would allow high-school aged students in China (for example) to continue their normal lives and studies in China and upon graduating in China with a Chinese High School Diploma they can simultaneously graduate with a US High School Diploma.
Most higher learning or educational institutions use a traditionanal "badge" type logo (I have attached some examples but if you google "university logos" you will see many similar themes)
We would also like a more traditional looking logo for New World Academy since it will be printed on diplomas or transcripts or other "official" paperwork.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
We like Blues and Yellow together.... Red Color (similar to Harvard University) may also look interesting
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
I would like to spend a moment to also discuss the deep rooted symbology in many university or educational logos. You can see these when you do a search on google for "University Logo". You will often see a round logo with:
3) Light / Lamp / Lantern
4) Laurel Leaf (leaves)
Each of these symbols has deep and symbolic meaning. Generally these symbols mean "Knowledge", "Truth", "Enlightened" or "Enlightenment".
For the New World Academy Logo we would like a more traditional logo (likely a round badge type logo). If the designer would like to incorporate traditional symbols within the logo then we would like 1) An open Book, 2) A light or Flame or 3) Possibly Both...
As an alternate approach on the traditional logo, I have included an artistic "Yin/Yang" type symbol which helps illustrate the duality nature of the world. If a logo can be created from this it may also be novel or interesting.
OK Please feel free to ask any questions and Happy Creative Energy !!!
