How Lisakathleen started their logo design journey

Company name

Common Ground Montessori Learning Community

Overview

We are a group of parents who are working together to found a highly environmentally and socially conscious child-inspired learning community, which will include a school, (eventually for toddlers (a parented program) through high school), many opportunities for family participation, synergistic relationships between our community and businesses, and a strong support network for our parents and teachers to also pursue their own interests. Our school program will follow the Montessori philosophy, and our goal is to support children in finding their places as conscious, empowered citizens of the world.

We will involve seniors in our program, create a family/baby/teen friendly community space in our buildings, and have a full-time outdoor supervisor so that any child can be outdoors at any time. Children will have opportunities to garden, indoors and out, year-round (we are in Calgary, Canada, so this will require a greenhouse or atrium).

We have chosen the name Common Ground for a number of reasons. It refers to the collaborative nature of our project, which will include consensus-based decision making at the board level and throughout, including amongst the children. It refers to the Earth, in a gardening kind of way, as well as in a "we ALL live here" kind of way. It feels a bit like a coffee shop, which implies the community is also for parents and adults.

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

Parents who are looking for alternative education for their children, including parents who want a strong language background, integrated arts and music, a highly environmentally and socially conscious environment, and an emphasis on thinking outside-the-box. We will appeal to a range of socio-economic backgrounds, as we will offer a highly accessible tuition assistance program. We are not trying to create an exclusive program, though our program will definitely appeal to both entrepreneurs and forward-thinking corporate types.

We need a logo that is very professional, but still somewhat reminiscent of our hippie roots;) The hippies need to know that we are their peeps, and so do the corporate types (Common Ground, right?).

Requirements

We hope you enjoy working on our project! We are very excited to see what you will create.

Brown and green base colours, maybe a third colour (blue or gold).
Needs to work in grey-scale.
Please avoid puke-green. We'd prefer some shade of "plain old green green".

We want "Common Ground" in larger print, and "Montessori Learning Community" below in smaller print, like a tagline. We'd like to include some reference to the Earth, and possibly some reference to children. Children could be represented by plants/sprouts. The attached file includes two ideas that we think would be good places to start.

Simplicity is good.

We won't be using the logo separate from the name, so integrated would be best.

We'll need grey-scale files as well as colour files. I think eps and jpg, CMYK and RGB, with a small and large version of each, for web and print use, would be perfect, or whatever combinations is standard or makes the most sense to be easily adapted to a variety of online and print uses.

Can't wait!
