We are a relatively new nonprofit organization providing after school academic and athletic programs to motivated and talented students from economically disadvantaged families. We are based in Charleston, South Carolina, USA and are one of a handful urban squash programs that have sprung up in cities across the United States
We need to appeal to educators (teachers), donors, students, and parents, probably in that order. So the logo can't be overly sophisticated - it has to be simple, and appealing. Please see the examples attached from other urban squash programs.
We would like to keep the Blue & Yellow color scheme of the old logo. You can see the original logo as the second-to-last attached item, and a slightly revamped version as the last attached file. We don't like either of them. Feel free to use or throw out any of the elements, except the color scheme. No font requirements either.
Doesn't necessarily need to incorporate any of these elements, but possible imagery includes:
Imagery relevant to Charleston, South Carolina:
- The Ravenel Bridge (google it and you can see it in the current logo, attached)
- The Palmetto logo (a palm tree and moon, again, you can google it)
- Pineapples (a symbol of charleston
- Anything else you can find that symbolizes Charleston (maybe a crab??)
Imagery relevant to academics:
Imagery relevant to squash
- squash rackets
- squash balls
- squash players
We need a high res pdf of the winning logo, and ideally an illustrator file as well.
