Water Resources Center - Minnesota State University, Mankato
We are a center for environmental research and information exchange associated with a university. The mission for the Water Resources Center at Minnesota State University, Mankato is to gather, interpret, and distribute data of environmental significance to help citizens enhance the quality of regional lakes, rivers, wetlands, and groundwater. This is accomplished through faculty and student applied research, educational programming, technical assistance, and water resource planning.

The Water Resources Center at Minnesota State University, Mankato is seeking a logo for our science/research/outreach center. The logo must be limited to two colors (potentially plus black). Earth tones are preferable. We are seeking a relatively simple innovative design that will be easily recognized. The design should incorporate a relationship between land and water. PLEASE NO DROPLETS. Please do not represent water in the logo with a droplet shape. (This is over-used in our field so we would like to avoid that imagery). We want something that reflects water and land as the bulk of our work centers on studying rivers and lakes and the associated landscape. We are located in southern Minnesota where the landscape is predominantly prairie with lakes and river valleys.
The acronym for our center – WRC – could be used as a basis for the logo and/or incorporated into the design, but it is not required. The design must also include the affiliation information: Water Resources Center - Minnesota State University, Mankato. We can abbreviate WRC but “Minnesota State University, Mankato” must be spelled out.
We would like to obtain original artwork in a variety of formats including editable Illustrator files that we can alter as we decide on our color scheme.
