Sorry... I should have said this before... NO TAGLINE. Put the name of the company,project access, inthe lgoo but do not use the tagline as it will change. Also, I like the more modern, clean, stylized logos. Also, I'd prefer to stay away from red, it's too bold.

To all: I like the stylized look. The name will become something like "Thrive", or Lifeline....the bottom line is that we are actually on the apartment complex's property....teaching children, helping adults get jobs , health fairs. We bring these things to them so that they will stay off of welfare and have pride and their children may stop the cycle of poverty. We're giving them a hand up. If you come up with a great tafline, you'll get an extra $250. Good luck. The Psychiatric wellness logo is great as it's like a flower (or lily pad?) Opening up with a stylized person coming out. Good luck.

Example 2 is quite good, stylized, shows uplifting, wings to fly.

Please keep it away from the healtcare or real estate look. The name may chang to "Thrive" . It should show us giving them the help they don't have access to for a brighter future.

"for a brighter future" sounds really good, maybe that would work as a slogan :)

The logos are a little bit too feminine. I like the concept of coming into the sunlight . I like the idea of a subtle house. I like people, but a specific family , especially one holding hands, older to younger has been done so often (see Donald T. Sterling charitable foundation or make a wish....all use families holding hands). I don't want to look like real estate. Take tagline off. Go to our website www.project-access.org to really see what we do. We do bring help (and teach them how to get around). Notice our old logo was a key and very corporate and masculine. I don't want that corporate box and key. Let's make it easy to print, even in Black and White.

You're really listening, thank you. I like the gold ribbon use but not the heart. maybe a sun coming out or people?

I like the design with the blue ribbon quite a bit but when it spikes up and down it looks like the person is dying....even out the ribbon.

I really like how some of you are working the house into the concept.

Can one or two of you try one for "Safety Net". we are providing one if they fall or make them stable so that they don't fall. You're getting close.
