Slogan

VRC

What We Do

This will be a new global research operation, run by a non-profit organization with offices in 30 developing countries (Africa, Asia, etc). With a focus on agricultural advancements, our group will focus on how to help feed the world in 2050, when our population will exceed 10 billion.

Industry

Non-Profit

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - global food security (feeding potentially 4 billion hungry in 2050))
#2 - science and technology and innovation
#3 - global "virtual" collaborative research

Our Target Audience:

The logo will be targeted to an international audience of researchers, scientist, government officials and groups interested in food security and eliminating poverty in developing nations.

Color Preferences

assume it needs to be "universal" as it will be global in nature. But the focus in on food, agriculture, growing--so natural colors (green, brown, yellow) seem better.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

we like World Wildlife Federation (see logo--is a panda). We'd like a symbol that could stand alone, with or with out the name of our group

Re: #1, #2, #3...

Hi...thanks for this! Good start! I would love to end up with a symbol that identify the new center...also, a focus on "VRC" rather than spelling out Virtual Research Center. VRC can be next to or part of a symbol.

This is a very worthwhile entity...I very much appreciate your help on this!!! New breakthrough technologies must be developed to feed a world of 10 billion. This is a very serious effort.

Thanks again.

Re: #4 & #5

Thanks so much for these...look good. A few comments. The emphasis of the VRC is growing food...agriculture...etc. Would it be possible to focus any symbols of other elements using things that point to "growth or growing or food, etc.?).

I appreciate these a lot. Thanks again! Our group does a lot of work in Indonesia.

#9...hi...getting closer.

One thing I would love to see (sorry if I didn't communicate this earlier) is a "symbol" that can be recognizable independently of the VRC or name Virtual Research Center. Something that embodies feeding, hunger, third world, growth, technology.

Thanks!!!

This website is an example of the Virtual teamwork that is being proposed in VRC.
One umbrella/ central agency - <logotournament.com>
Using a team of creative talent from around the world -
Purpose - Creating the best logo.
-----
The VRC represents -
One central/ umbrella agency - VRC
"Bringing together" (virtually) scientific talent from around the globe
Purpose - Feeding world hunger

It would be nice if this imagery can be triggered by the logo in a simple, elegant, artistic, manner.

Thank you.

Hi everyone...very good work!!!

Please focus on the symbol...thats the most important thing. This is an international initiative. As an example, please look at the World Wildlife Federation logo...simple, timeless, international.
