Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Open Discussions/Diversity
#2 - Academic/Collegiate
#3 - Fresh

Our Target Audience:

The students, faculty, and staff of Claremont McKenna College--a small liberal arts school in Southern California. The student body (ages 18-23) is very politically active and engaged, and the opinions are more diverse than more schools--split left and right. They are serious, but not overly so--they are still college students.

Color Preferences

See: red (maroon), white.
Not see: blue, green, orange.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

The logo would sit atop the website: http://thecmcforum.com
The colors should be similar to the colleges': http://cmc.edu

The best designs will include both some graphic and also some text element. One obvious though possible option for the graphic element is a forum (styled rotunda with columns, etc). Nonetheless, we are eager for other options.

One graphical element associated with the school is available here: http://cmcabroad.com/wp-content/themes/grid_focus_public/images/avatar.png

Also, the logo can include the slogan text as well.

The logos should be more web-oriented, and the designers should try to craft a logo that would fit nicely at the top of the website: http://thecmcforum.com

By web-oriented, I mean it should work nicely on the banner of a webpage: http://thecmcforum.com

The size is roughly 100px height and up to 500-600px width, but that can fluctuate.
