All other design considerations are [url removed, login to view] don't want to give too strict design requirements so you can be as creative as you'd [url removed, login to view] give you inspiration, here's a great quote about the meaning and significance of Pilgrimages (it's not just any kind of travel):rnrnA pilgrimage is a journey, assigned by [url removed, login to view] brings the pilgrim not only to a physical place but out of himself, and into the presence of god.

As an act of faith, or to renew the relationship they once had with God, or to gain one that others seemed to have, pilgrims journeyed to the traditional sites of the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus. If that was impossible, they traveled to a shrine or a great cathedral. It might take many days or even weeks to get there, but the distance did not matter; the journey itself was as important as the destination.

What motivates someone to make a pilgrimage? Often, it is a sense of life being a dead end, or that the world has become totally absurd, or that he is simply 'sick and tired of everything.'

    Because for you the intention and message of the logo is important, an explanation: I used the flying dove as a Symbol both for the travelling itself as well as for the holy ghost, which may come down as the spiritual aim of the travel. Hope you like it.

      Hi sophialotus, so far your entry is one of the best we\'ve liked, good job! We like how it connotes the abstract path and journey of pilgrimage.

      As a suggestion, could you make similar versions but probably with less colors? The logo may end up quite small in some of our materials and even black and white in our newspaper ads, so a simpler color palette would work better to be safe.

      Hello, thank for the compliments; you were right. I adjusted the colors and simplified the design. Please kindly find number 43 (please ignore 42 accidentally submitted twice) and 44. I have appended a small grayscale version as well. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

      HI Roxana, your entries look promising! Please note the suggestions/comments I noted in the above messages. For your entries, the globe seems a bit iffy for us.. maybe try a different version of the globe or just stick to more abstract versions like #8? Thank you for joining. :)

    Obvious thing to do fellas is use a plane as cross.

      Hi Redhotfusion, I do agree that using the plane as a cross would be the most obvious way to approach it. However, we don\'t necessarily want to feel extremely commercial. As noted in the brief, the pilgrimage is a spiritual journey more than just any sort of travel, we want to convey that sort of sincerity and significance in the logo as well. Thanks for your comment! :)

      Hi Melvin, I think a Cross would be appropriate, not a Holy Family. A written logo with graphic design can still work, however the challenge is that it should still connote Catholic Faith and Travel.
