Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting http://www.pulitzercenter.org/ is an innovative non-profit leader in supporting the independent international journalism that U.S. media organizations are increasingly less able to undertake. The Center focuses on under-reported topics, promoting high-quality international reporting and creating platforms that reach broad and diverse audiences.
At a time of dwindling audience for traditional news outlets, the Pulitzer Center bridges traditional and new media and engages the public across as many platforms and at as many levels as possible – from print and broadcast outlets to face-to-face community discussion and interactive web-based technology as well as education initiatives. Pulitzer Center projects – stories that without Pulitzer Center support would have gone untold – have been featured in such media outlets as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Economist, Newsweek International, The Washington Post, and many more.
Our desired audience are people who are interested in international affairs and seek out international news online, including online print, photo and video. These audience members could range from the casual international news consumer to people looking for in-depth international reporting on specific issues. Our logo will be featured prominently on our website, but also at events the Pulitzer Center sponsors and has a presence at. We want to convey to our audience that we are deeply involved in engaging and reporting on global affairs, and that we do this across multimedia platforms.
Attached is our current logo, which can be seen on the top of our website at http://www.pulitzercenter.org/.
We would like to keep the blue background (hexadecimal color code is #002b50), as well as the white text, i.e., have blue and white be the ONLY colors in the logo.
We are open to new font styles.
For the words, we would like to give "Pulitzer Center" the most prominence.
We would like to have an icon in the logo, in white, that conveys "international reporting" as well as "crisis" (crisis connotes that the reporting projects we sponsor and help produce deal with systemic crises, such as global water sanitation issues or food insecurity). One idea we have for the icon is a rose compass. We are certainly open to other images for the icon, but we would prefer not to see globes or pens, as we consider these a bit cliché.
Also, it is important NOT to use our acronym "PCCR" anywhere in the logo.
