The image needs to be inspirational and motivational. Marrzipan is helping people to reach their full potential, to have a positive attitude, to believe in themselves and to achieve things they didn't realise were possible.
Marrzipan students are proud of themselves and their accomplishments, and they grow/progress rapidly.
Some key ideas (of which some/all could be used):
- Stars/glitter/lights/sparkly sky
- Life-skills, social skills
The image of the snapper board and film light is the current logo. It is out of date as the focus of that logo is heavily drama/performance (the MEDIUM through which students are taught), whereas the focus needs to be on self-confidence and self-belief (the OUTCOME of what is taught).
The image of the hand pulling the stage curtain back is what is currently on the back of our business cards, with the logo on the front. We will most likely keep this image on the back, and put the new logo on the front. Marrzipan students perform in short plays regularly (to practice their confidence and public-speaking skills), so a theatrical/dramatic element is still required, but it doesn't necessarily need to feature in the logo.
The best sketch is of the "M" in the shape of a mountain, with a stick figure at the top, leaping off the mountain to reach a star. This is the concept we would like developed more, but the other sketches give you an idea of our thought process and vibe.
Finally, if you help us to create this logo, you will be helping thousands of children and adults to be inspired to unlock the potential that is hidden inside them. Marrzipan will expand world-wide over the next 5 years, and your logo will be therefore be international. We will also require help with our website, flyers and business cards in the future, so this could be an on-going professional relationship. When comments are made on the logo, we will be sure to send clients your way and recommend you, as we believe in "paying it forward" and helping everyone achieve success.
Please only send in a design if you believe in our mission to help change the world, through helping people believe in themselves!
