We held a previous logo content just to field ideas (and awarded a winner of course) and we landed on a few things we really liked.
1. We want to start using "TCC" instead of the full "Tulare Community Church" in our branding. So the logo should focus on the "TCC", but we're open to ways to incorporate the full church name "Tulare Community Church." If you do try to incorporate the full name, put the emphasis on "Community".
2. There are a couple designs from the previous content we like somewhat, and those incorporate a "tree", and kind of a circle logo look "see uploaded files". We didn't like ANY of the trees they came up with because they were all too typical, busy, and "church-y". we want something clean, modern, and youthful.
3. The final png file with the leaf is something I designed. We don't want a leaf, but a tree, but this logo gives a ROUGH idea of the modern clean look we're going for.
4. In terms of the big elements "TCC", the tree, and some sort of circle encasing all of it, we are open to blending the three element, doing them separately, or just in part.
