We need to design a logo which will have 2 pieces (designs)
One design is the normal logo, corporate/academic logo, and from it please derive a small icon logo like Facebook for instance have the small F letter in that square icon (to use as icons on other websites).
This logo should express the idea of the project which a social network that links students to professors and which will allow each user to generate his TREE of knowledge or his Academic Tree.
This tree is pretty much like a Family Genealogy Tree, but here it is about links between professors and students. So we need something in the logo that expresses this "Tree".
The project name is "Academic Tree" so this is the wording that needs to appear also in the logo
For the colors we need the logo to be developed on a black or dark background. The logo itself should contain the Blue and Green colors.
For the small "facebook" style icon it can contain the initials letters "AT" (and or the image you used in the logo) and the same colors/styles as the main logo.
