Tell us what you need
What is the exact name you would like in your logo?
Our name has a lot of words and probably would make a logo too busy, so we do not need to have the name as part of the logo. The logo would probably be shown next to the name, or along with our web site url, or without the name. Some incorporation of parts of the name might be acceptable such as Lower Hudson or the PRISM acronym. Our name is Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. Shortened version are LH PRISM, and Lower Hudson PRISM.
What is your industry?
What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?
1. Partnership and collaboration of many organizations working toward the same goal, synergy, cooperation
2. Protecting nature, benefiting nature, support of diversity in nature (birds, butterflies, flower, fish), nature as both lands and waters.
3. (optional) One or more of the following
a. geographic reference to the Hudson Valley or our location in NY (but not a city-scape as we encompass city and agricultural areas), We are in the south-eastern part of New York State encompassing the counties Orange, Rockland, Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester, Bronx and New York (Manhattan) as well as the southern half of Ulster Co. A map can be found on our web site.
b. invasive species reference (harder to do as there are so many and some folks like abstract representations and others say it should look like a real species, and its hard to choose representative and recognizable invasives (See Ontario logo in the attached file - theyve done a good job of using generic representations that don't look like any one species, or the NJ ISST logo http://njisst.org very nicely done there with recognizable species -- uses kudzu(plant), Asian Longhorned beetle (insect), and Asian carp (fish).) We work to prevent the spread of invasive species.
c. reference to the PRISM acronym (but note that there are other NY PRISMs so this is not unique to us).
What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)
Clean, simple, graphic. Not too much detail or too many words or shapes and symbols. This means that some of the items listed to communicate may not be able to be included since if you tried to include all it would make the logo too busy.
Do you have any other info or links you want to share?
We are a collaboration between more than 36 partnering organizations, agencies and individuals working to have a positive impact on natural communities through our efforts to control and manage invasive species. Link to our web site http://lhprism.org Note: our web site has not been designed. It has just recently been created to allow us to share information. The Logo is the first step to setting our design. Colors have not been chosen.
The logo will be used on our web site, business card, letterhead, informational fliers and fact sheets, possibly on t-shirts, and by partners to indicate that they are a partner in the organization (think the word Member plus logo).
Logo should be usable in black & white as well as color.
