The OSMO Foundation ( http://osmofoundation.org ), is a non-profit entity that funds grassroots initiatives that support community building and networking in the high tech sector.
The word OSMO comes from "osmosis" and signals the idea of transferring knowledge and experience through close contact.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Should reflect the high tech community of young entrepreneurs but needs to resonate with corporate donors/sponsors of the foundation. The logo should reflect an idea that everyone wants to be a part of.
I'm looking for something that is lively and bold and not too serious. It could be that this liveliness is conveyed through the use of primary colours or by some other sort of dynamism in the logo.
A couple of other phrases that come to mind:
"Connectivity - via serendipity"
"Unstructured - by design"
It should be able to accommodate the use of french (Fondation OSMO) or english (OSMO Foundation) (or both) as part of, or associated with, the logo.
