cosi10 - Connecting Social Innovation 2010
We are producing a unique series of coordinated, locally hosted dynamic learning events for social entrepreneurs and social innovators all over the world, to take place over a 5 month period during the 2nd half of 2010.
Together, the events will co-create an historic global online archive of information designed to help social innovators in every country access the resources, knowledge and financing they need to accelerate projects that aim to improve the well-being of our planet and it's people.
We will be reaching out to social innovators in countries at all corners of the earth who are engaged in starting, managing and scaling up a mix of for-profit and non-profit "green" and/or social impact oriented initiatives. These are typically very creative and passionate individuals, who think outside of the box and are driven by a desire to find, develop and implement solutions to some of our world's most pressing challenges. Collaboration, co-creation and interconnectedness are key to the approaches that are currently driving this emerging sector forward.
We are looking for a logo that represents people, creative dynamism and connectedness, and that can easily co-exist in cross-cultural marketing materials with the logos of multiple partner organizations. Attached are examples of some of our partner logos.
***General note to all designers - I would love to see more effort to try to match (or at least not clash so dramatically) with the partner logos attached in the design brief. Feedback from the partners so far is that most of the logos submitted would clash too much. Please try using earthtones instead of bright bold colors http://www.colorschemer.com/schemes…th%20tones .***
The logo should be easily usable & recognizable as an avatar on social media media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
Please stay away from images of the world and/or puzzle pieces, as these are already overly used in our sector.
An image we like very much (but which is not ours to use) is at http://internet4change.com/images/c…rtical.jpg
While we are open to fresh ideas, we would be interested to see variations on the above, possibly with the lower figure playing into the "i" of cosi, diverse shapes representing the people, and/or a different color scheme.
The typeface used should clearly distinguish the "i" and the "1" in cosi10. (All caps can be used only if this visual distinction remains very clear).
