We would like a graphic component that is separate from the print component (written name + separate graphic logo) so we can use one part of the logo without the other. The HadaNõu Collective is our umbrella organization, and we have a number of subsidiaries--the subsidiaries will use the same graphic logo as the umbrella organization. Feel free to play with both "The HadaNõu Collective" and "HNC". We added potential color themes, but we would also like to see greyscale, and we definitely want a white/transparent background.
Graphic logo: single logo, used by umbrella organization and all subsidiaries--should be able to be used in conjunction with varied themes of text logos of each of the subsidiaries. For example, one subsidiary is technology-based and so the lettering style might hint at techy, whereas another subsidiary is social justice-based so the lettering style might be more in the direction of graffiti. Feel free to use likenesses of animals, natural objects, cultural symbols etc. that might fit and give us a quick line in your message about why. Design idea: aspen trees look like individual trees above ground, but underground, it turns out that a group of aspens are all connected by their roots, and are actually a single organism. We're based out of Colorado (but we don't want to emphasize this geographical connection too strongly), but this could be a very cool idea to explore. Maybe a few aspens with a view above/below ground, greyscale/color/combination showing individual trees above ground and the connected single organism below ground?
Text logo: text logo for "The HadaNõu Collective" should follow general design guidelines specified by 99Designs design survey included with this narrative. We are also open to seeing unique interpretations.
