We would like a logo that represents our social experiment/website, AltrUhelp. It can also be written as AltrUHELP to emphasize the "U HELP" in promoting altruism.
We would like the logo to incorporate a tree either in the "A" of AltrUhelp or the tree can be above or next to the entire word. The logo should remind people of the childhood book "The Giving Tree." The logo needs to inspire people to be more altruistic to help others. Maybe write the name AltrUhelp in the roots of the tree or branches. The tree is a metaphor for the butterfly effect you create when you help someone. One act of kindness starts the growth of your tree (network) and the more people that pay it forward after you, the more branches/bigger your tree will grow. Be creative.
Adjectives we would like the logo/colors to evoke: Inspiring, Uplifting, Inviting, Emotionally Fulfilling, Community, Collaboration, Motivating, Pleasure, Positive energy.
We want something unique that stands out. If brand recognition grows, we want to be able to only show the image of the Tree without text like the Nike or Apple logo. The image of the Tree will be printed on business ties for executives, t-shirts for college students, cards, and more.
We will require a Print file format and Web file format. Attached are several previously made logo designs for sale on 99designs.com that we found intriguing.
