American Green Up and Green Up (insert city) such as Green Up New York, Green Up Orlando, Green Up Boston,
My name is Jon Hughes and recently I had an idea that I think will become a valuable tool in the movement to "go green".
I am a small business owner whose business has benefited from the many small changes I made toward "greening up". So, I am in the process of building a "socially responsible network" where local communities can connect around a cause (going green) and help communities to work together at the local level to build more a sustainable future.
Our objective is to encourage involvement from everyone in the local community to join in and contribute in any small way by helping them find their personal "Green Mission". By reducing the scale of the global environmental issue to a local level, people, businesses, and governments will understand that their individual actions ARE relevant because they can see the impact in their daily lives.
American Green Up will ultimately consist of 3 primary components:
1. A social website :
2. The Green Up Store -
3. The Million Tree Mission
In a nutshell here is my 10 second elevator speech:
American Green Up is a "socially responsible network" of communities connected by a common cause whose mission is to inspire greener and more prosperous communities through consumer savings, business profitability, and government accountability. Together we are local communities on a global mission.
As a social network wrapped around a cause, our target audience will be the:
Elected Representatives and Candidates
that make up every community and can benefit from "greening up".
Our Mission statement is: "Inspiring greener and more prosperous communities through consumer savings, business profitability, and government accountability."
I am seeking a logo / Brand ID that translates across all mediums . It should be simple, clean, and easily distinguishable from any others. Obviously American and Green is the overall theme.
The logo must work well for americangreenup.com as well as greenup(insert city).com (i.e greenuporlando.com or greenupsanfrancisco.com)
It should include the Tagline "Local Communities on a Global Mission"
Please be as creative as possible and think outside of the box. I am not looking for another eco site. Instead, my focus is on community involvement centered on living greener. I do not want to tell people how to live, I want to make it easy for them to do their part by helping me do mine.
Please take a look at some of my first logo attempts. I really like the idea of the smile, but really can't envisions how to incorporate it properly. I'm not married to it though.
Lastly, please keep in mind that this is just the first step and additional graphics and website theme will be needed. What is developed here will be the hub of future development.
I am looking something great! Thanks and good luck.
