The Department of Geography at Simon Fraser University (a university based just outside of Vancouver, Canada) is in search of a 'GEO@SFU' logo that can be used in various marketing materials, on powerpoint presentation slides, and in other professional contexts. We want our logo to convey that: (1) we are a vibrant group engaged of students and scholars; (2) we are innovative thinkers; and (3) we are world leaders in geographic research.
What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)
GEO@SFU must appear on the logo. Beyond this we don't have any specific requirements. We have no preferred shapes or colours.
