Contest Brief

A logo for a small vocational school for underprivileged women called "Queens College"

Although we have plans to offer a variety of courses, we want to start with a health assistance course. For this reason, we need:
i) a general logo for the school,
ii) a subsidiary logo for the Health Assistance department (which should look very similar to your idea for the general logo, except with added symbolism to show that it is a Health Assistance department)

Creative mandatories:

1. The name "Queens College"
2. A shield, a la the typical school emblem
3. School colours: i.e. wine red, white and gold OR purple, white and gold (we haven't completely decided yet, so choose one of those sets of colours. We will depend on your own creative recommendation :) )
4. Logo design must be able to fit into a perfect square

Preferences:
1. Use of the letter 'Q' somehow (perhaps within the shield?)
2. Use of a banner beneath the shield
3. A bold, classy or sophisticated look; nothing that looks corporate

The preferences are just preferences. They are not mandatory, and we could easily be persuaded to choose a design without any of our preferences if the design looks GOOD. We're giving you some creative reign over this.

I have used this site a number of times, and the one thing I always end with is this:
If you also believe you have a logo design or idea that would be perfect, but completely ignores both our mandatories and preferences (except for the school name of course), please submit anyway. You never know.

Submission requirements:
300 dpi, PNG file, vector format
If you use Photoshop, design in the largest resolution you can

In the event that you win (and only in the event that you win),
***YOU MUST PROVIDE YOUR ILLUSTRATOR OR PHOTOSHOP RAW FILE: This is non-negotiable. I know some designers are not comfortable with this. Sorry, but we need it for the long-term.

Thanks, and good luck guys.

    #42 The idea of the Q inside the shield was to represent a woman reading a book. All the elements used to design the logo are from the bottom part of the letter Q.

    Tell me what I can do to improve this logo, and does the idea fit your needs?

      I see the slight change in the shield, and I think it makes it look even better. At this point, it's really just up to what my bosses decide on. I'm only shortlisting the best of the best, and you made the cut. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. :)

    There were so many entries, I just sort of had to get tough and really weed out anything I'm sure my bosses won't go for. Thanks for all the hard work guys.

    @CIPRIAN1 Very clean designs. They look good, but there's something about them that doesn't quite fit the brand. They radiate a masculine energy, for one thing; and they're a little reminiscent of high school basket ball team for some reason. Could it be the font choice? I'm not a design expert, but that's my feedback.
