We are looking for a new and unique logo for use on letterheads, compliment slips, business cards for a new Male Cancer Awareness organisation.
We are the board of a newly formed not for profit organisation (awaiting registered charity status) with the aim to raise awareness of male Cancers (Testicular, Prostate and Male Breast Cancer) in Scotland.
The name Cahonas is an adaption of the term Cajones as we felt it is not only a term used to describe testicles but its other meaning is of bravery and courage something we feel all people diagnosed with Cancer are.
We really are keen to stay away from the Cancer Charity Ribbon concept even though some that have been submitted are impressive, we would like to try and take a different approach in branding this organisation.
The logo does not necessarily have to have a very “corporate” look. Yes we want to maintain professionalism throughout all our activity and produce quality and professional looking stationary, leaflets and other communication material but we feel quite strongly that this can still be done with a modern look and feel.
We are a relatively young board and want the organisation to reflect this and to not have to conform to stereotypical images that can often be associated with charities and their work.
One of the group’s main and primary objectives is to raise awareness of the issues of Male Cancer, to be a voice and educate men, almost like a platform to get information across.
Traditional ways of reaching men have not always worked and we are looking for an image that can go across a range of materials that eye catching but non threatening and not too touchy feely.
