How MindGiant started their logo design journey

Company name

Nanticoke Watershed Alliance

Overview

In June of 1992, Maryland and Delaware conservation organizations reached across state lines in a formal agreement to create the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance. In 1995, the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance decided to establish itself as a nonprofit organization and become a consortium, i.e. an organization of organizations. Almost forty organizations now belong to the NWA. Our partners are made up of foresters, industry, small business owners, government agencies, environmental groups, land trusts, realtors, academicians, fishermen, restoration groups, farmers, and citizen groups.

We are all working together because the Nanticoke River is endowed with outstanding abundance and diversity of wildlife, undisturbed land, and rural characteristics. The Nanticoke is a wonderful river for recreation, education, nature study, and simple solitude. It has a rich history of Native Americans, tall ships, steamboats, slave running, piracy, and the underground railroad. There are properties within the watershed on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the northernmost stands of bald cypress trees on the Atlantic Coast are found within the Nanticoke’s watershed. The Nanticoke has the highest concentration of bald eagles in the northeastern United States. These characteristics must be preserved.

Requirements

We currently have a wooden sign (image attached) that hangs over our office. We would like the logo to be based on that. The font should be as close to the style on the wooden sign in the attached in the image.

This logo will be used on our new website (www. nanticokeriver.org - not online yet) and for business cards and stationary down the road. We really like the sign and it would be great to have something that evolves that into a clean "Apple-esque" icon/logo that will look great on the website (maintaining the "wooden" sign feel). I think it would also be a neat idea to have a few chains holding the sign as well for the web-version of the logo.

Key points:

Pros:
- Clean
- Eye catching
- Simple
- Recognizable

Cons:
- Corporate
- Chaotic
- Flat images
- Do not use the abbreviation "NWA" in logo design

I do my best to be responsive and provide detailed direction and design guidance and feedback. I look forward to see what everyone can do! This is for a great cause.
