For this logo... we want to look at variations of this phrase right here:
This logo needs to be very powerful, very compelling, but soft & convey a message of HOPE at the same time. It needs to stand for making a difference, believing that you can do it, and POWER. it has to be a very powerful logo.
we would like to use a color scheme very similar to this if possible...
This is another of our web properties. We like the light blue color scheme. You can play with many variations with these colors, but we also want to encourage you to be creative, and if you get an idea then go with it.
I am looking for SHARP, BOLD, and CLEAR logos here. Somethign that conveys the message powerfully and simply. :) I will be giving lots of feedback and working with you as much as I can! Congrats to our future winner, and I wish you the best of luck in this exciting contest!
