We would like a thoughtful designer to ponder these Themes below and discover a design that represents the whole of these components together. The design should be a balance between literal and symbolic. Some ideas from the community have been a tree with our different ancestry in the leaves and roots that extend down in the shape of our major streams (see attached). The design should feel organic (we are growing!) with a touch of grunge (we are a little rough and dirty). Above all, we want our logo to convey GRIT, CULTURAL DIVERSITY, and CAPABILITY.
Landscape: urban orchestra of soothing birdsong, babbling water, impatient traffic, and sizzling ethnic foods. We have a large stream system and have many parks and a lake bordering one side. Like the properties of water, we are changing and morphing.
People: wide-ranging diversity of age, socioeconomic status, and ethic background. Like the five tastes we are bitter, sweet, sour, savory, and spicy. We are gritty and rough around the edges but with an overtone of humanity. We have faced struggles but we are resourceful, clever survivors. We want laughter, community, and a sense of home.
History: industrial history of working class people in logging and automotives.
Spirit: please reflect on these three songs:
Thank you for your consideration!
