Please focus more on pictogram/mascot/something novel and interesting. We don't want to have only "ICW" the same was as it is in our old logo, so those designs won't be accepted.
Also don't forget that even though city is called Winterthur, it has nothing to do with Winter. Please design something warm, welcoming, group-like, not Winter oriented - we are not a SKI resort.
~~~~~~~~~ In general
We would like to emphasis openness and invite people from city Winterthur to participate in our events, drinks after work, sightseeings, meetups and trips.
Most often our members are individuals that have just moved to Switzerland, looking for new friends and interesting things to do in the city.
~~~~~~~~~ What we are trying to communicate
~~~~~~~~~ Who is our target audience
However, each time a potential member sees our flyer or a website, they already know our name. Therefore, please strongly consider creating a logo that isn't just a representation of ICW's abbreviation. We would like to see some pictogram and mascot designs as well.
~~~~~~~~~ Website will come later as well
Once we are finished with the logo, we will move to website design, which is going to be also hosted here at 99designs. So if you also design websites, start thinking about that as well.
We will be using the logo on printed out materials (flyers mainly), email signatures, as well as on the website.
