224 Bursa ve Bursaspor Gönüllüleri Derneği
Well, first let me translate our brand name to English; the direct translation might be: "224 Bursa and Bursaspor Volunteers Association", a group of people who voluntarily spend time for the welfare of our Bursa city and its only football club Bursaspor.
Bursa is the fourth largest and fastest growing city of Turkey. Besides, it's one of the most beautiful and nature-rich cities in the world. But in the course of its development, we think it's in need of more and more civil organizations, fan-clubs, and any other voluntary activities to participate in its growth.
We set out to be one of the most modern and dynamic associations united for this goal.
So, we have been looking for a simple but striking and memorable logo for our assoc. Our mission is to help preserve the natural geography of this city and ensure a healthy urbanization, meanwhile help support its only football club Bursaspor against the "big four" football clubs of Turkey.
Lastly, we are against the bad and corrupted acts around Bursa municipality trying to shape the city not according to the needs of the city habitants but rather to the profits & needs of the big companies, I guess you see here, what the point is.
So, we are in need of a plain & simple but impressive & memorable logo to represent and accompany our associations groups and activities. We need your skills to achieve that.
The people from all parts of Bursa (population : about 2 millions) is our audience but our main appeal will be to those who enjoy voluntarily and actively participating in Bursa city's municipial matters and whole-heartedly backing the city's only football club, Bursaspor.
In this context, our main target will be the governors of Bursa city and managers of Bursaspor football club , i.e. we aim to have influence on the decisions related to the future of this city and its football club.
1- It must be warm and honest looking, but with a serious posture: We are (of course!) warm people but we feel we need to have a earnest and straight looking attitude toward the mass media and the municipal government in particular.
2- It is expected to contain "green" as the main color, because green is the symbolic color of our city and football club. (look at the link at #4 for other color preferences)
3- No idea on the typeface actually. Any kind of fonts are welcome as long as they fit to the warmth and seriousness requirement mentioned in 1.
4- Originality is important and needless to say, ready-made icons are not favored. Actually, one of our friends who voluntarily came up with several designs, has used those kinds of "ready-made" icons on his works and not many people were impressed with his designs.
Here is the link where you can check 5 of sample logo designs that our friends from our association have made: http://224yesil.dyndns.org/forum/sh…403#pid403
Those samples will give you the idea.
You see, the main structures look like a typical football club logo but it doesn't have to absolutely look like a FC logo, any other attractive designs are welcome.
Noticed how "224" and "Bursa" put near each other? It's because our Internet hostname and short name will be "224Bursa" .com
After all is said and done, our Final wish is: Be free! :)
