What is going to be worthwhile investment would be an image that is built off of sketch #1 in the attached file. To me, the shape is elegant, serious, and obvious to what we work to accomplish.
I know I do not want images that are out of scale or don't look very realistic, as many people and organizations are rightfully criticizing that just planting trees or buildings solar panels is not going to accomplish sustainability. Such as an inverted tree and a skyline or just a picture with solar. Such images would easily discredit this business and is not what I am looking for.
Ideally, I would like to see skyline image with a flat bottom, in higher definition, with one modern large wind turbine, a solar array symbol, and some notable skyline buildings in the US (not around the world). Additionally, a version with a meandering river through part of the city image in blue or black and white silhouette, and some type of vegetation (in green or silhouette), whether vertical, on the side, or in the forefront of the skyline image would be ideal, if possible to keep simple and is basically 'readable' and instantly recognizable for both professionals and ordinary people.
Thank you very much for taking on this challenging image to simply convey what the future, vibrant city can be like.
The circle in the bottom design suggests to the fact we do cycle analysis to create data to promote a different design in future housing and city development that is sustainable for a population. A thought that I was trying to create into a creative sunset, but maybe getting to abstract, unless a genius thinks otherwise.
