What We Do

RE-AMP is an engaged and active network of nonprofits and foundations working on climate change and energy policy in an eight-state region in the upper Midwest.

Industry

Non-Profit

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Increasing renewable clean energy, energy efficiency, and low carbon, low impact transportation systems
#2 - Stopping new dirty coal plants, cleaning up existing coal plants, and creating global warming solutions
#3 - Renewable energy is a critically important issue that we must address now

Our Target Audience:

Target audience is anyone who is interested in and/or committed to clean, efficient and safe energy use, while reducing global warming pollution. This can include nonprofits, concerned citizens, media professionals, and government policy makers.

Color Preferences

Green is our primary color.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Please look at our current logo and the idea behind it:
Current Logo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/54799829@N00/3928905311/
Goal behind logo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/54799829@N00/3928905349/

We actually like this logo but are looking to refresh it. We would like designers to try and stay close to the current design but make it more dynamic, yet remain true to the overall goal.

Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest:

~~ 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.

1st place - 50 points
2nd place - 20 points
3rd place - 10 points
4-6th place - 5 points
7-10 place - 3 points
10th on - 1 point

#8, #9
I like how the arrows look more modern, more refined than our current logo. Good initial entries.

#5 defiates from our current design, but presents a different way of getting multicolored arrows into the design. But the circle/globe is a little problematic. This particular coalition is focused on an 8 state Midwest region. This design feels a little global, if that makes sense.

Thanks to everyone so far.
We have given specific feedback to many of you and are looking forward to your revisions.

In general, we like the logos we have received so far, and most of you have followed our direction to stay close to our original logo. At this point, we would also entertain ideas that deviate from our current logo but convey our organization's main goal... to work together to help push the adoption of energy policies that reduce globabl warming, and ushed in a new era of renewable energy alternatives.

Thanks.

One thing that may be important to develop concepts around is the fact that RE-AMP represents a coaliation of non profit organizations based in the Midwest.

Here is a link to a map that shows the Midwest: http://www.flickr.com/photos/54799829@N00/3941831435/

Hello all,
Lots of great designs so far. Keep it up!!!

We would really like to see some more experimentation with the 8-state (Midwest) region represented by RE-AMP member organizations. Please visit: http://www.reamp.org/newsroom and on the landing page you will see a map graphic that shows the 8 states (they are in light blue). Is there a way to make this 8 state region a 3 dimensional graphic (i.e. the states are popping out of the middle of the map) and have this the central point in the logo and/or coming out of the circle part of existing logos?

In other words, please make the states pop off the page. And perhaps have the arrows flowing into and out of the center of this region.

Thanks!

Wow... thanks to all for the great contributions to date.
We have decided to extend the contest for an additional 5 days, because we have a small group of people who need to review these logos and agree on the best ones. We needed the extra time to help coordinate the review.

We will continue to give individuals designers specific feedback. We are also anxious to pick a winner so there is a good chance that we will end the contest before the full 5 day extension.

Thanks again... your work is helping a very worthy organization.

Again, thanks to all who have contributed so far. You have produced a good set of options for us.

But, with one day left, we would still like to see more choices. Our top ranked designers are going make some tweaks to their current designs (and please don't copy their work). But we would like to see any and all fresh new ideas.

Again, thanks for your work/effort/interest so far.

With less than 45 minutes to go, we would like to thank everyone who has contributed so far. You have certainly showed a lot of creativity and made our final decision very hard.

We welcome last minute submissions.

Thanks again.
