We are two teachers who have come together with a mission to unite educators around the world. We work in a low income area and teach under-served students. We work very hard and we are extremely proud of what we do. We seek to unite teachers who feel as we do; we want to create a brand to voice our common pride and purpose. Our first phase will be to put our logo onto t-shirts to create brand recognition.
We are targeting educators who feel pride in their work and a desire to contribute to educational reform.
Primarly, we want a logo that says our company name:
We want the "t" in "teach" to be lowercase and we want a period after "teach" because we are making a statement.
This we will use on our website, business cards, etc.
And we want to be able to take part of the logo "I teach." without "foundation" to print on shirts to sell (no graphic, no "foundation" on the front of the shirt. We want our design to be:
NOT stereotypical "teachery"
We also want the logo to have some sort of simple image/graphic/shape/visual which connects with teaching in some way. We intend to use this visual on the bottom left back of the t-shirt. One idea we had was to use three seeds, as seeds of knowledge (see attached). You can play with this idea as well as other creative ideas you come up with. (no apples, no chalkboards, no typical teacher/school images please!) We want this to be DIFFERENT. We want this shirt to be something you would buy in a boutique.
Be creative!!! Have fun!
