Looking for a clean design that exudes:
Logo should contain the name "Bay Area Science Festival". Graphics, icons, etc. are up to you. Clean modern fonts encouraged.
Emphasis on a clean, almost elegant look - but still retaining a bit of energy.
With the 3 regions coming together, I would want 3 colors in the scheme (white can be one of the colors). With the fall timing, orange stands out, but be creative with the pallette. Must be able to be used in Black and White as well as color.
Golden Gate Bridge
Atom (abstract representation is ok)
Being too Cartoony
Logos we like:
http://www.sciencechicago.com/ (love the iconic Chicago branding along with science)
http://www.sdsciencefestival.com/ (a little youthful for my taste - but enjoy the energy of it)
http://www.calacademy.org/ (As a potential partner, our logo cannot be too similar)
Winner will potentially have more work as we are looking for a web design, t-shirts, and a great deal of print work over the next year.
If we accept your design, we expect to have all the rights to use and/or alter this logo. Logo will be trademarked.
