Think about "scouting" in general. We want a serious look, but not too military. The use of "patriotic" elements, such as stars or a shield, is OK. Please do not use the 'fleur de lis' that is associated with the Boy Scouts. We don't want any confusion. This program is for ANTI-BULLYING and COMMUNITY BUILDING.
We're thinking along the lines of the "Art Deco" posters of the 1930's & 40's as an option. It can be modern too - Go for what you do best. The logo should portray images of drums or a drummer on some level (ethnic drumming - not a snare drum or drumset), but it could also be about rhythm and sound (vibrations). We don't want "music notes" or music notation. This program is about fun and mainly for non-drummers.
Simple is good. Should work well in Monochrome and in small print. Can include one or more representations of people, but it is not a requirement. Should work for both boys and girls. If you have questions, please let us know. We will do our best to provide feedback.
Use of the slogan is not required (it's an option). The purpose of this logo is to represent drumming- and rhythm-based programs for school children (middle and high school). Should appeal to youth (ages 10-18).
We appreciate your time and effort. Good luck!
