Fortuna got the brief after I rewrote it the second time. Almost nailed it from the start. Just needed a couple tweeks and it was spot on.
Fortuna was very polite and even though my requests were only minor, it was no problem. Can't thank him enough.
It was frustrating to watch other designers copy what he was doing and present them as their ideas, that's not designing.
Thanks again to Fortuna and to 99 designs for making this possible 😃

Responsive, creative and hard working designer!
This designer was very responsive. Changes were made very quickly and easily. He was really easy to work with. I highly recommend.
How LBPL started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
Lake Bluff Public Library
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a small public library in a suburb north of Chicago on the shore of Lake Michigan. Our community is small and close knit. We are a public organization, so we serve a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, and interests. We pride ourselves on being friendly and approachable, with an emphasis on personalized customer service. We offer a variety of services beyond books, such as technology assistance and instructions, movies & video games, and programming ranging from trivia nights hosted at a local brewery to more family oriented events such as storytime at the local farmer’s market.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Community & Non-Profit
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors:
Blues: Knowledge, trust, calm and honesty.
Aquas: Empathy, compassion, clarity and precision.
Greens: Growth, harmony and success.
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
We are looking for a re-branding that is more contemporary than our current, and reflects some of the values of our community. We want the logo to reflect the fact that we're a friendly, vibrant, community-centered organization that serves a variety of needs, from education to entertainment. We are looking at a more saturated, vibrant palette, primarily in cool tones (the blue, aqua, green that we indicated) with one warm tone (such as goldenrod, coral, brick), but we are interested in your interpretation, as this palette is not set in stone. We also like modern sans-serif fonts for use in the logo. We like logos where there is interplay between visual design and the wordmark, but that are flexible enough to function separately as well.
See attached images for some logos from other libraries that we like, and visual elements from our community that could be incorporated.
