The logo must communicate an independent and patriotic spirit that puts the rights of people first over government intrusion.
The current logo of a minuteman was meant to represent that because they were fighting about unjust taxation, but it needs to be updated. You can see wikipedia for a definition of the minutemen.
You are free to use the idea of the Minuteman in the logo, or try something totally different. You can use the whole name "Fairfax County Taxpayers Alliance" or the abbreviation "FCTA"
I like patriotic logos. An example is the one used here:
It seems to both have a historical feel to it, but yet modern also and incorporates the American flag.
Other possible ideas might be to incorporate something Fairfax County or Virginia related in the logo. It's not necessary, but just an idea.
We have a few slogans which you are welcome to incorporate into the design if you like, or they can be added later.
"Watchdog of the Taxpayer's Dollar Since 1956"
"Mission: Influence elected officials to end excessive spending, borrowing, and taxes."
"Best Budget Analysis of Fairfax County and Virginia"
- No Clipart or stock photo in the design please.
The end logo should be provided in both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop formats.
