Silmik in one word... Awesome. Right from the start Silmik understood the brief and was a treasure to work with throughout the whole process. Professional, creative, responsive, enthusiastic, great with direction, and follow up. I honestly can't say enough good things about Silmik. Anyone would be super lucky to work with this gem! :)

How rochelleT started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
Mercury Tragedy Project (50th Anniversary) I think the 50th Anniversary "notation" should appear under the logomark rather than being incorporated into the actual design. I am inclined to think that a design with a university-style shield (perhaps design elements in quadrants on the shield) might be impactful
What’s your company slogan?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The 50th Anniversary Mercury Tragedy Project (2020) will (i) document the devastating health, economic and human rights impacts of mercury pollution in the English Wabigoon River System (Ontario, Canada), (ii) pay tribute to early thought leaders who sought to shed light on the tragedy (iii) issue a call to action to prevent future environmental tragedies. The Mercury Tragedy Project will be launched in Canada to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day
Target Audience: Environmentalists, Government Officials, Media, Museum Directors and Museum-Goers, Native Ojibway People, Health Organizations, Human Rights Organizations
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Mercury pollution (the tragedy) occurred in the English Wabigoon River System in NE Ontario, Canada. While I don't want a rustic (i.e browns & greens) look & feel, thought should be given that the impact was on remote towns and 2 Ojibway reservations, each located 60 miles approx from the nearest town.
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
Graphic Elements that seem most appropriate/appealing include:
University-like shield as backdrop
Stylized factory (representing the polluter)
Pipe with effluent (mercury flow or drops) going into waterway (lake or river)
Native symbol (feather) representing the Ojibway people who have been devastated by the mercury tragedy
