Since our article in December (New Logo… Is it time for a change?), we’ve received feedback from members and advice from logo designers.

We’ve built on the ideas prompted by that article and will submit the results to expert graphic designers to bring you exciting options to vote on at the March General Meeting. (Mark your diary with the date: 11AM on Sunday 17 March.)

Logo ideas suggested so far:

This list brings together the possible elements, concepts and qualities for an effective logo. If you feel so inspired, you still have a few days to submit your design or ideas.

  • ability to function in both miniature form (e.g. letterhead, flyer) as well as enlarged (e.g. billboard or poster).
  • no words/text (words can be added around a logo; they are not part of a logo)
  • a circle
  • arrows as the circle
  • an icon of Brisbane such as the river or the bridge
  • visual representation of community/connection/exchange/skills/trading
  • a simple and eye-catching design
  • colours of blue and green, if used, to match the CES logo.
