We have some specific requirements for the logo design, including that all the following words be included:
Grace Lutheran Church
Remembering, Rejoicing, Reaching Out
There are no particular color requirements, though no more than two colors are preferred. (Grace has no official colors or official font style to follow, though a darker/regal color like purples, reds or blues might be best for one of the colors if using two). Given the Swedish heritage of the church, the colors of the Swedish flag (blue/yellow) also.
Since the logo will be used in a variety of ways (see above) the vertical or horizonal of the design should be considered in terms of how flexible is it to a variety of uses - from banners to smaller graphic uses like letterhead for anniversary event notices/letters. Can it be reproduced "big" and "small" for example?
Including a graphic image would be great - but it need not be overtly religious like a crucifix, steeple or Bible - in fact, likely more appealing if contemporary in look/feel while knowing church-related.
Have fun - we appreciate your submissions!
