We are looking for someone to come up with the logo design for Princeton Community Japanese Language School, which will be printed on our T-shirt and accessories. The design should appeal to higher grade students and parents. Our vision is something simple yet modern (not necessarily looking for traditional school like logo or something too japanesy/oriental). Other keywords would be cool, clean, simple, fun, contemporary, non-traditional, friendly.
We'd like to see unique or original PCJLS logo as the main focus. Japanese elements MAY be included but it needs to be subtle, perhaps inter twined into a design that you can't immediately tell. Would like to avoid obvious Japanese-y stuff.
Create a logo with the school's initials, PCJLS, and write out “Princeton Community Japanese Language School”. One logo will be printed on the chest (center or left top), or on a sleeve. We don't need design for entire t-shirt. Just one logo is good. As an option, you may use Japanese Characters プリンストン日本語学校, but please explore different font styles if you choose to use Japanese characters. Up to 3 colors may be used on the logo, but colors can't be alternated. In other words, we can't change printing colors depending on the t-shirt colors. Please be mindful that the logo will be silk screen printed on T-shirts (Red, white, navy t-shirts) and possibly on pull string and tote bags, so we prefer to avoid gradation colors and/or ultra fine lines.
