Red, yellow, orange are relevant because so much of glass work
involves heat or flamework as part of the process. A gradient in the
red/orange/yellow could work well as an indicator of flame.
It is not required to have specific artwork that looks exactly like
glass, abstract artwork is OK if it fits the theme.
The fact that we are in Northern California is not relevant to the
logo - we don't need artwork that relates to California in any way
(i.e. do not need a beach or the Golden Gate Bridge ;-)
Our audience is a mix of professional glass artists, people who
collect art, art students, people who appreciate fine art - so it's a
variety of knowledge about glass and glass art.
Be sure to look at our current website to see the kind of information
we cover, and some photos of actual glass artwork. website =
We want something that looks very contemporary and clean. Simple and
elegant is best.
We will eventually need versions in color, b/w, grayscale, reverse
out, watermark. We will ask for all of these in the final round.
Our current logo has both the acronym (GLANC) and the full name. If we
can have both without being too cluttered, that will be great.
We would like a sans serif font, which is cleaner and easier to read
in a logo. GLANC should be all upper case, the full name of the
organization could be lower case or mixed case.
