Contest Brief

The attached file represents a first (ugly) pass at what we're looking for in a logo for an adult education program at our church.

Here's what we're trying to represent: We've broken up 2014 into several "tracks" (or time periods), and we're offering several classes during each track. We're encouraging attenders to pick one class each track to attend. The purpose of the classes is to equip individuals to serve with increasing effectiveness in a variety of capacities. The intention is to repeat this process in future years as well.

We're after something simple that communicates as many of the above ideas as possible. Deviations from the attached will be considered, as long as they meet the criteria we've laid out. The logo will be used in a lot of print materials, so if a design incorporates color, it should also look good in grayscale.

As we've discussed the attached concept, it's been agreed that a more bold font would be more effective. We're partial to Babas Neue (free download at [url removed, login to view]). In addition, it might look better for the transition from dark to light colors to be a constant gradient rather than a stark change of shade from one arrow to the next.

Looking forward to your entries!

    Thanks for all the submissions so far!

    When I recommended the Bebas Neue font, I neglected to check the style of the "Q". Now that I look at the different options, I find that I'm partial to the circular Q, as it better represents what we're after.

    Marijanissima, as the ratings indicate, #3 and #4 are very close to what we're looking for. 2 changes I'd suggest: First, I'd like to see a version with 5 arrows within the body of the Q instead of 7. Hard for me to visualize how this will look, but I think it would work better for us. Also, if there's a way to modify the tail of the Q so it looks less tail-like, and perhaps more like another arrow, I think that would be good.
