Something that projects a modern, cutting-edge business. Partial to modern, clean, flat design and icons. Some well-placed white space is great -- nothing too busy.
Please limit the images of students to 1-2 max. Try to stay away from cheesy photos of students - students learning is fine, but a student smiling with a "thumbs up" is a bit cheesy. Consider using college buildings/campuses, libraries, bookcases, modern classrooms, or anything else related to academics/college as a watermarks.
I've included an iStock photo board with some ideas here: https://www.istockphoto.com/collabo…QbyiFD9lww
The first 11 pictures are our favorites, but feel free to use any of these pictures or any other pictures you think would be appropriate. This should at least give some idea of our taste.
I've also include a color pallette here: https://coolors.co/export/png/b2c3f…7b7-ffffff
You don't have to use these exact colors if you don't want, but shades of blue and purple are preferred. If you have an idea of a different accent color that might go well with these, feel free to use it.
Last but not least, we would recommend staying away from the colored (red, yellow, and green) company logo. The white logo on a colored background is fine though! The colored logo just doesn't integrate well with the above suggestions. If you can think of a way to make it work, go for it, but if you can't, feel free to just display the company name, Brigewater Prep, in a cool font on the front cover, or use the white logo on a colored background.
Please understand that these are only suggestions. If you have a creative take on things that goes contrary to these suggestions, we're open to inspired alternatives.
