Arche’ International is a non-profit group seeking to provide quality of life improvements in locations throughout the world. We are new. This effort was launched a few months ago, starting in Fort Portal, Uganda, which is west of Kampala in Eastern Africa.
Arche's mission is currently focused on medical & sanitation related infrastructure needs, including medical clinics, and water/well production and distribution Our goal is to utilize existing materials and labor to create simple, sustainable facilities that can reproduced by local skill sets in other surrounding areas. We will use the Micro-Loan business model to empower local citizens to maintain what is created. Arche’ International is a non-secular organization that includes doctors, engineers, architects, and people of vision, commitment and passion. Arche’ International is initially focused in Uganda Africa, but will eventually branch out into areas of South America as well, though that may be a few years down the road.
Once the logo is selected, our next step is web and print design. Our budget will grow as we progress into the next phases, and as fund raising gains momentum. The successful designer could be an integral partner in this endeavor throughout the next few months as this progresses. Good luck!
We are hoping to attract high income earning financial donors as well as skilled medical staff, civil & structural engineers, and general volunteers. Our logo should emphasize credibility, professionalism, and commitment. We must appeal to banks, international charity organizations, donors. We must have a legitimate, business like presence to assist with our local governmental relationships. An example site that we greatly admire and appreciate is http://www.plantwithpurpose.org
The word Arche’ is Greek in origin, and has many connotations, distilled as follows:
“From the beginning, from the first, from of Old, first principle, principle of conduct, principle of knowledge, method of government, empire, realm, heavenly power, authority, and magistrate”
The logo should be flexible enough to represent different regions and countries, perhaps simply with color? Example: Parent is “Arche’ International”, the local would be “Arche’ Africa International”.
The logo must be text + icon and may be used in print, web, or video formats, and able to identify Arche’ International without requiring both text and icon to be used simultaneously. However, it is our intent to use the text + icon together initially.
Color theme: Blue, green, brown are good colors with positive meanings pertaining to our ministry and focus. However, you are not limited to these colors. The successful design must be able to be used in monochrome black and white also.
Graphic style: Clean, simple, crisp. For inspiration, the founders of Arche’ appreciate the global aspects of the Mercator projection maps. See links for examples.
Arche’s initial focus is in Uganda, and it is acceptable for the logo to subtly reflect that.
The successful design must be delivered in vector image format, preferably in Adobe Illustrator file format.
