On Whidbey Island northwest of Seattle, we are creating a new public access community park on a beautiful 16 acre property that is covered with tall 100 year old coniferous trees (pine, fir, hemlock, etc.). A walking trail will loop through the property, and beside the trail will be art sculptures. Visitors will be able to enjoy a short walk through a peaceful forested habitat, and along the way come upon delightful surprises of sculptures within the forest that blend well with the environment and demonstrate a nature-based theme.
The sculptures will primarily be made of stone or metal, and their visual themes will generally center around abstract representations of living nature and animals or abstract representations of beautiful scenery parts of nature such as ocean waves, mountains, shells, etc. There will generally not be human forms and sculptures will generally be more abstract than literal/representational.
The primary graphical elements to incorporate are the forest or tree(s), abstracted version of sculpture, and optionally the walking trail.
Logo ideas / requirements:
• There should be two related versions of the logo:
1. Graphic-only logo
2. Logo that includes the same above graphic logo with integrated text “Price Sculpture Forest”
The word “Price” can be smaller and/or less emphasized than “Sculpture Forest”, if it is needed for layout reasons. ("Price" refers to the park's founding family's last name)
• Colors should be primarily earth tones that reflect the natural forest environment
• The graphical portion of the logo (and perhaps any graphically integrated text) should emphasize a forest or tree(s) plus a form that abstractly represents a sculpture. Integrating an abstract/stylized walking trail into the logo could be good too, though that part is optional and would only be done if it does not make the logo otherwise too busy.
I am open to other ideas / approaches as well
Logo will be used for:
Exterior park public entrance sign
Web site branding
Flyers, letterhead, business cards, etc.
