Molly O'Holleran is running for the State Board of Education in Nebraska, District 7. She has been an educator, administrator, volunteer, and school board member for North Platte Schools for the last 8 years with one term as President. She is running a very progressive campaign that supports equal education and opportunities for all, better use of funds, pro-teacher policy, and greater localized control of budget.
The campaign needs to speak to the young and motivated, and also to the older more conservative voters in Western Nebraska. Wholesomeness, family values, education, and structure must balance with fun and creativity to capture the high energy of the candidate. The State Board of Education is essentially the "School Board" for the entire state.
The seat is for District 7 in Nebraska, which is the Western third of the State of Nebraska. The voters in Western Nebraska are young concerned parents and all the way up to the older retired (and very conservative) sect of the population. Design should speak as best as possible to both groups. If somehow energy and flash can balance with clean, organized structure - that would be ideal.
We are looking for a logo that can be re-purposed as a yard sign , used in email campaigns and used on the website - http://www.voteformolly.com. It seems as if campaign yard signs are typically 24" by 18" based off of a little Google research. We also want to use it on HTML headers for newsletters.
