We love our current logo (which is brand new), but we are running into major problems with it. The design is too complex, and we have been unable to use it for simple black or white printing. We need something simple, but that still reflects the "elementary" juvenile, fun side of our products. The products are for elementary school teachers, but we'd like to stay away from common or predictable elements, such as a crayon or school bus. Our materials help teachers teach reading and writing to their students. Our website is http://www.4elementarysolutions.com.
We would also like to somehow "tie" this logo together with our sister company's logo, Secondary Solutions. I have attached that logo, but you can also see it at http://www.4secondarysolutions.com.
*Please note - I have extended the contest because we are not 100% happy with any of the designs. A few have potential, but I want to make sure we are getting exactly what we want for our company.
To give you more information about who we are and what we do, and what we are looking for in a logo, we are a very small publishing company who write and publish and sell guides to help teachers teach books to their elementary students. We believe strongly in reading and writing well, and love being a part of the education community and helping teachers teach better. We are looking for a whimsical, fun, yet simple design that reflects who we are and what we do. We want our logo to be young, iconic of the elementary school classroom, and memorable. Thanks for visiting my contest!
