How investedcitizens started their logo design journey

Summary

Invested Citizens supplies seed capital to social businesses startups in the form of equity or low-interest loans. In addition, we provide ongoing training and support to entrepreneurs and works to partner with local institutions to ensure the viability of portfolio organizations. Our grassroots, democratic approach to solving poverty, climate change, and healthcare involves lots of people making small donations, pooling the capital, and making collective investments.

We are looking for a clean, bold, and unique logo that captures the essence of the organization: Cooperative, bottom-up solutions to a safe, just, and prosperous planet

Company name

Invested Citizens

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are looking for 2 versions of the design: a stand-alone symbol and the symbol with logo type. We are looking for a design that can be used later for business cards, letterhead, and banners. The ideal design will be so clear it will even be recognizable as a favicon.

About Invested Citizens: We believe that the best way to achieve a safe, prosperous, and peaceful planet is to help people, communities, and nations become independent and self-sufficient. And that social entrepreneurs launching social businesses are the have the most potential to do that. A social business is an organization designed to do good, that generates its own revenue, and reinvest its profits in the organization. The movement is being championed by Muhammad Yunus, the founder of the Grameen Bank and 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winnner, who also coined the phrase.

To spur innovation in the social business sector and to attract the best and brightest entrepreneurs to launch social businesses, we are raising a series of multi-million dollar grassroots, global venture funds by collecting small donations from an international community of invested citizens.
In return for donating, members will be able to vote on where the fund allocates the money. Currently members can earn votes through donating, inviting friends, and contributing content.
