What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are looking for a secondary design illustration to go along with our current logo. In the past we have used a picture of a flower growing out of brick pavement which represented growth with our tagling "Rethink. Rebuild. Renew."
Moving forward we want to replace that image with an image that more represents equity and bringing all community members together to improve Long Island.
There is no specific thing we want in the design, rather we want a specific feel of equity, community, environment, and economy if possible. Some examples that are similar in feel is the known picture of a bunch of hands from all different races holding a globe.
We'ved attached our current logo and secondary picture we currently use. We want to move away from the secondary picture to something that has more of a feel of community, growth, and advancing sustainability specifically on Long Island.
