The design was great! It came along with the requirements and worked to express themselves a little beyond just the functional asks.
How WebCo started their logo design journey
S.T.E.P.S. of forgiveness
S.T.E.P.S. (of forgiveness) is a German based charity that supports education projects in Sri Lanka.
The charity was founded by a Tamil student who is studying in Germany right now. His initiatives allow a growing number of orphans and children of poor families to get a free basic education.
The letters of the acronym stand for Singhalese, Tamil, Education, Peace, Sri Lanka, expressing the need for reconciliation between the ethnic groups in this war-torn country. One focus of the education projects is teaching both Singhalese and Tamil language to promote understanding between ethnic groups.
I am not directly involved, but I am impressed by the work they do and would like to help this organization getting a professional logo. That's why I am running this contest.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The logo has to appeal to people who are willing to donate and support the projects in Sri Lanka.
I will upload the logo the organization is using today. But you are free and welcome to come up with completely new ideas.
You should not focus on the "pitty factor" but maybe more on the fact that S.T.E.P.S. is a courageous initiative.
