The design we are looking for will ideally communicate themes of:
Healing and reconnection
Science and empiricism
Modernity and renewal
Words/moods: healing, renewal, human connection, reconnection to the world, shining a light, changing perspectives, health, discovery, optimism, rewiring, underlying mechanisms, nature, mind/brain, caduceus
Our board has discussed logo options and would love to see the finalists create logos that maintain a focus on the scientific nature of the organisation. We particularly like the metaphor of the lightbulb.
As CEO, I personally want something that has the scientific motifs and is yet imbued with a healing and human connection imbued into the scientific background.
This logo has to convince government and straight-laced scientists that psychedelic science is a legitimate and important field. We can't have anything too "psychedelic".
Please feel free to ask me any questions.
