What We Do

CleanUp.org is dedicated to providing comprehensive information, education and tools that are essential to increasing recycling participation in the United States.

Industry

Non-Profit

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Recycling
#2 - NonProfit
#3 - Professional

Our Target Audience:

Government, Grant Researchers, Other Non-Profits. This Organizational will not be focused a consumer based customer.

Color Preferences

Blues, Greens, Earthtones - NOT bright/loud colors like red and yellow

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

We are looking for a logo that looks tight, clean and crisp. We DO NOT want to see anything that looks cartoony - Simplicity is good. The logo needs to symbolize the act of recycling, recycling issues, and information about recycling (we are NOT a recycling plant nor do we pickup recyclables). We are fans of nature inspired color palettes, but don't let that limit you.

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage more participation.
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monitary means of showing apprecaition for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.

We are happy to see so many great entries. I just wanted to give you guys some more details on what we like and dont like. We are looking for the logo not to have the ".org" on the end and we like also the idea of incorporating the pictorial mark into the wordmark, but it needs to be more legible than #2.

We found it interesting that almost all the entries used a circular mark - We liked it, but would like to see some other options as well.

We went through all the new entries and ranked the ones we liked. We would like to see more logos that do not incorporate a circle and use colors other then the bright blues and greens. Thanks for all the great work!

Crunch time!

We have unranked all entries because we like so many. Here are pieces that we like so far... If you can work on these ideas we will rank again in a few hours.

Really like #103 , #65

Font from #85 - we like how strong it is but not too keen on the the colors (also not a fan of the pictoral mark)

Tree from #98 - would be interesting to see just the tree with some strong typeface

Pictorial Mark (arrows) from #150 and #154 - Good representation of recycling without using the recycling logo. Do not like the font.

#152 - Like how the pictorial marks works with/into the wordmark

IMPORTANT! - We need the logo to speak about recycling with out using the triangle recycling logo. Also needs to be able to look good as one or two colors!
