Computer Aid, Inc. Learning Academy Charter School is a rather long name so feel free to use the acronym CAILACS in the logo. If you do use the acronym we only ask that you mask the "LACS" to the best of your ability. We would like it if the pronunciation of CAI "Lacks" is not obvious from the logo. We are required to keep the words "Charter School" part of the name.
Keeping the CAI separate from the rest of school's name is just a suggestion, not necessarily a hard requirement. If you do, we would ask you keep the CAI as simple as your design can allow. I've attached the official Computer Aid Inc. logo to give you an idea. Please DO NOT use the official logo in the charter school logo and do not let it's aesthetic drive your logo designs.
Again, keep in mind, this is NOT a technical school. While having technology incorporated into the logo design is fine, we do not want to send the message that students come to the school to learn technology specifically. We also do not want to see logos that look like they belong to a professional IT company. Even though that's our background we want this to be a logo to be for a school above anything else.
For the colors we suggest using Blue #053868 but feel free to adjust based on the design and overall color scheme.
The more you can capture aspects the school's mission in the logo, the better.
And of course, be creative!
Thanks again to all designers who submit a logo, we look forward to seeing them all!
