I'd like to see variations of either white or green backgrounds, with the company name in green. A transparent background is probably what I will end up wanting to use, but I am curious to see versions with a green background for contrast.
A basic concept I had in mind would be for there to be 3 boxes above or below the company name. The first (left) containing a representation of Vermont (perhaps the states outline or green mountains). The second (middle) a person making something (perhaps a toy or clothing), The third (right) the item the person created in the second box.
The boxes don't need a ton of detail and could be as simple as like a stick figure, but the more detail the better.
I'm not sure if it would look best with Vermont Made It on a single line or having Vermont on one line with Made It centered underneath like a tagline.
That's just a concept I was thinking of, but this is a freestyle contest where the designer has complete creative license. I'm open to anything if it looks great, and can portray a sense of pride for Vermont made products.
