This project involves designing a logo for our popular knitting for charity website. No graphic designer has been involved so far, and a new logo is very much needed for:
We are looking for something special - a logo to further our mission: to encourage more people to knit more for charity. Be creative -- we are very open.
We like tasty, colorful and clean designs. It needs to fit into the website colorwise (although we will be updating the look and feel of the site soon to make it more modern and Web 2.0).
Please include a graphic and the site name, KnittingforCharity.org. We want to be able to use the graphic separately on Twitter, Facebook, etc. We plan to use this logo in many ways.
We want a unique and distinctive logo that is attractive to a wide age spectrum.
One idea: Yarn can be very colorful and has great texture. This appeals to most knitters. You certainly do not need to use yarn in the logo, but you might want to consider it.
The most common charity knitting items are baby blankets, chemo caps, and items for soldiers and abandoned pets.
Our target audience is women who knit, and especially those who knit for charity. They are passionate about knitting and love to help others. Although many of our visitors are grandmothers, many are also in their 30's and 40's (and even in their 20's). Our visitors almost always have a good sense of humor and love to make a difference.
* We’d like the logo to fit into the banner area at the top of the site

* Also need a version of the graphic that fits in a small square for Twitter
* No designs based on existing templates

* No clutter
* No Flash
We can't wait to see your designs!
