We would like a clean, sophisticated, welcoming and versatile logo that communicates 'togetherness', 'support' and 'growth'.
Please don't show icons that are too literal e.g. people holding hands or with outstretched arms.... take a look at the Synap logo below... it evokes the feelings of togetherness, support and growth without being too literal...we like that.
The target audience is for PhD students and NOT undergraduate students. Therefore, please take this into consideration i.e. not a 'party' social club.
Please no cliched imagery of mortarboard/graduate caps.
We would like a 2-3 colour logo. Colour is to complement but NOT be exact as the University logo (C:100, M:57, Y:0, K:40).
