Any new responses should follow the updated brief only:
We would like to re-open the qualifying round and focus only on a few more options around the following points:
1 - embellish and overlay our existing logo only.
embellish and overlay our existing logo only and incorporate the existing mosaic as used by Elwood Shule: https://www.elwoodshule.org/
New logo must also print well and look clear in black and white print.
The NEJC are looking to update the current logo a blue menorah.
We are looking to contemporise the colour and the look, without changing the shape.
The original logo was designed many years ago, and is no longer reflective of today's world, or anyone under 60 years of age.
Revamping the logo and catering for younger people and families would therefore show these individuals that the NEJC is in the 21st century.
Overall the NEJC is a conservative spiritual, social, cultural, and religious centre, plus the menorah is an historical symbol going back thousands of years. The new design needs to reflect this.
We are open to refining existing logo or creating something completely unique to what we currently have.
