Logo design needed for a new website focusing on where to go, what to do, where to hang out, and what's going on in the downtown area. As this city (and its downtown area, especially) is well-known for its collection of art deco buildings, it would be great to have a logo that mixes modern and art deco design.
The mission of the organization that is creating this project contains this phrase:
“...a dynamic, urban core, complemented by a constellation of livable, thriving communities...”
Which is another inspiration that I want to use for the logo. There's an idea floating around the organization that if this website is successful for downtown, we want to expand the same idea in to other areas of the city.
So a logo that conveys again, a vibrant, thriving downtown and then the ripple effect spreading to the rest of the city would be awesome.
What I have in my mind is an exclamation mark where the point ( ! ) of the exclamation mark itself represents the core of the city. then i would have waves, or ripples eminating from the dot, to represent the idea that a thriving downtown creates a vibrant, thriving, dyanmic city. please see the bullet points on, "what i want" and "what i don't want", as i am pretty specific about this.
