The name of our orchestra is "Musikverein Wollbach 1866 e.V.". "Musikverein" translates to "wind band", "Wollbach" is the name of the town and it was founded in 1866. The "e.V." should always be shown next to 1866, as it shows the legal association status. Please make sure that "Wollbach" is at least as large as "Musikverein", or even larger. If you want to craft the logo based on letters, please use either the three letters "MVW" or just "W" - not just "M" or "MW".
We are looking for a logo for our orchestra to be used for print, a new Web presence, on shirts, on ties, on stickers, on posters....that contains a pictorial part as well as the text "Musikverein Wollbach 1866 e.V.". As we are celebrating our 150th anniversary in 2016, we would also like to have a third element that could be added: the text "150 Jahre"="150 years". We could then use the logo next year and leave the "150 Jahre" out for the future.
While red might be our preferred color, we are open for ideas.
Our town has a crest which I upload as a source of inspiration. The crest should not be used in full, but parts of it in an abstract design. Its colors might help to tie the logo to our heritage.
