We are a Christian retreat center in Central Florida that primarily serves an adult population. We want to be seen as a place of rest and renewal for pastors, churches, small groups, families -- anyone who might need a place to get away and get closer to God.
We are located on a lake, but water should not be a primary focus of the logo. Our setting is very wooded, with Live Oak trees and Spanish Moss all over the campus.
We want our logo to convey that we are a modern facility, but with a classic feel. We are centered in nature, so we would love to incorporate that, but we are mostly concerned with portraying ourselves as an adult Christian retreat center. Something that distinguishes us as a Christian/religious center is a must (i.e., a cross). We would prefer an icon that can be separated from the text if needed.
We are in the process of a complete redesign of our website, but you can find photos of the site and other information at http://www.lecretreats.org.
I have also included JPGs of our current brochure that we really like the design of.
