Ampelos is the name of our Christian church youth group. It's Greek for "The Vine". We want something that's clever, catchy, but simple enough to be used in many applications. (website banner, t-shirt logo, email graphic, even wall art in youth room)
We want a logo that we can use anywhere and it be recognized at a glance as being something distinctly us. I'm open to other ideas, but predominately we want a logo that is just the name cleverly presented. Not just a neat font, I can do that, but a clever way of illustrating what "The Vine" is. For Biblical clarification on this see John 15:1-17. We strive to be a group that is connected to "The Vine" (Jesus). Biblically we (Christians) are the branches being fed and nourished by the vine.
If you are curious about pronunciation: ampuhloss.
Remember, this is a YOUTH group. Ages 11-18
It has to be something they would like/be proud of.
The name of the group illustrated in a clever way that communicates who we are, rustic but modern, something that resembles a rugged vine
