We want our logo to represent our passion for education and enrichment. We would like the text to simply say 'PMI' and the design to symbolise our involvement in a variety of co-curricular activities that support growth and learning, for example music, education, technology, sport and out of hours care. We would like the overall impression to be professional, focused on growth and learning, relatively colourful and easily recognisable.
I have uploaded a sample, just a quick sketch with some ideas - although looking at it now we would prefer only the treble clef symbol on the 'music' leaf, and for the 'music' leaf to be the yellow one (so switch the computer down to the blue leaf and put the treble clef up on the yellow leaf). We would also prefer the picture to be to the left of the PMI lettering, and the slogan to be underneath (but would like to see samples with and without the slogan).
This is an example of a logo we really like for a company called Mind Tools. It has a symbol off to the left, the company name and a short "statement" below the company name: http://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newTED_05.htmColours should be bright, fun, modern (few ideas below that we like)Perhaps you could try a few different colour options http://www.brandcrowd.com/logo-design/details/78458http://www.brandcrowd.com/logo-design/details/70755http://www.brandcrowd.com/logo-design/details/78006http://www.wellsdrew.com/blog/greatest-logos-of-all-time/
