Thanks for considering designing our new logo! We plan on being very active in giving ratings and feedback as designs are submitted.
In your design feel free to subtly incorporate a cross, but don't feel obligated to. Also, simple mountains are great, but again, don't feel the obligation. Our current logo is attached.
We would like a logo that has our church name that is derived from a font that is commonly available even if it's modified, so that font can be used in other designed materials for our church. Would probably prefer more modern/minimal fonts that are sans-serif, but we are open to ideas.
We would like a symbol that is incorporated in the logo that can be removed from the name of our church as an identifier. (As in all of the logos that we like attached) This symbol should be able to fit in a square - ideally a square or circle (no rectangles).
Logos we like and why:
The Town Church - Love the way this incorporates both the initials of the church, as well as a cross, but not in a really obvious way.
Mars Hill Church - Simple, straightforward, transferrable.
Desiring God - Great use of a traditional, minimal font; love how the symbol creates a cross in negative space.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with questions!
