letthedataflow.ca and letthedataflow.com
letthedataflow.com is a website dedicated to the development of a new project and we need a logo.
Important: the logo needs to be built around "let the data flow" and not the project name. The project will eventually merge into another, but letthedataflow.com and .ca will remain.
The project is known as the Water and Environmental Hub. The goal is to make water data accessible to the masses and build analytical, interpretive tools to unleash innovation around water. It will create a new collaborative framework for the sharing of water and environmental data, knowledge and research on a variety of levels
The purpose of this website is to begin aggregating a community around the mission to liberate water data, crowdsource ideas and generally broadcast to the world that this new project has started.
This logo is going to be used within communications and marketing initiatives for the WEHub project. All of these initiatives over the next few months will flow through this website and will contain this new logo.
The project is open source and revolves around this key concept. We want to share water data freely with anyone who may need it.
Right now this project is in its infancy. We are focusing on researchers who will be able to contribute data or other water related information as our project grows.
However this project has a much broader goal. Once the platform is developed we are hoping to target Industry, academia, government, NGOs and the general public who are interested in water issues.
The logo should therefor appeal to this audience as well.
We are looking for a logo to represent our project.
The logo will need to be built around a few key terms:
No cartoons please.
We would like it to be clean and simple.
We prefer bright fresh looking colours. Blue is an obvious choice but not mandatory. References to data (i.e. binary code) and water (i.e. waves, water drops, ripples) works well but is not mandatory.
We require high-resolution images for printing.
Print file format .eps (CMYK)
Web file format .gif with transparency
We would like the logo to incorporate the words: let the data flow
However we would like to have the option to separate the words out and use the image alone for marketing purposes.
(for an example see one of our projects GeoChronos http://www.geochronos.org)
We would like our logo to look different than our partners:
Alberta WaterPortal At http://www.albertawater.com
Alberta WaterSMART at http://www.albertawatersmart.ca
Tesera Systems inc. http://www.tesera.com
Alberta Water Research Institute
Our largest partner is the University of Lethbridge
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo
