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.
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.
