We are a great church in Baltimore County MD. One of the ministries we offer to families is a time and space for kids with special needs. For many parents, this is the only time of the week that they can drop their child off to loving and qualified people to care for their special needs child. For the kids, we offer games, arts & crafts and a lot of love! We've grown to the point where we would like to have a more pro looking logo to use on signage, letterhead, website, etc. The identity would give the ministry more exposure.
Parents of special needs kids ages 5 to 18 years of age. These kids are all mentally handicapped.
This deign needs to be colorful, fun and young. We need it scalable for print, signage, web and video usage. Might also be a good idea to have a greyscale version for some print applications (you decide).
If you use images of kids, be sure to think diversity. Our church is VERY racially and culturally diverse and we want our imagery to reflect that.
IMPORTANT: Check out the kids section of our website for ideas and looks!
This logo dosn't have to be an exact style but we need it to "fit in" with the rest of the kids section of the website. Maybe NOT as cartoonish.
This may sound odd, but PLEASE don't use a cross, globe, dove or Bible in your design. These are great icons of the Christian faith but...well...they tend to be over used.
Have fun and good luck!
