How IndiaHouse started their logo design journey

Company name

India House Houston

Overview

The joke I always make is you get 2 Indians together... and they form 3 organizations. :-) The Indian community in Houston has always needed a central organization to serve its needs. India House aims to be that organization.

India House is registered non-profit 501 (c) 3. In part, the organization is a building itself has been completed through phase 1, a 20,000 square foot building that today features programming such as:

* Charity health clinic
* Cricket club
* Yoga classes
* Bollywood dance classes
* Speaking engagements by dignitaries

Phase 2 and 3 are planned at the same site -- these phases would add a large auditorium / performance hall and a building for more classrooms and more programming.

Funds for the India House have come from the City of Houston, Neighborhood Foundations, prominent individuals in the Indian community, and many others.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The audience for India House is
1) the Houston community and
2) the Indian community.

So it's a pretty broad audience.

Since 99designs is used by a lot of tech companies, I guess that I should point out that this is NOT a tech audience. This is an audience of everyday people. People who come from all economic backgrounds, social backgrounds, etc.

Requirements

Among other places, this logo will be used on the organization's new website that's currently being built (http://www.indiahouseinc.org/)

It should be simple.

It'd be nice if the logo renders in black and white as well as in color (for print materials that might be photocopied).

The logo should integrate the organization's name "India House Houston", but the emphasis should be on the "India House" part. The "Houston" part should be there, but it doesn't need to be equal in size/treatment to the India House part of it. (To explain my thinking: most people refer to the organization locally as "India House" -- since it's a local organization, the "Houston" designation is mostly just useful for the website and when it's being discussed outside of Houston.)

One theme that one *might* integrate in a logo design is the rotunda of the India House building (see attached photographs or this page on the architect's webpage: http://www.rdlr.com/projects.asp?in…projid=108.

The rotunda has a really nice lattice work design in it too-- that's something to consider integrating into the design.

Also, one could integrate is the Indian flag and/or its colors-- but this could ALSO be very trite. So beware.

Finally, I really like logo marks/typefaces (like FedEx, PayPal, Lenovo, Cisco, Google), but that shouldn't rule out graphical logos.

The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)

Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo.
