    Do you own The Logo Creator? yup

    Type of design: Logo

    Summary: looking for a logo for a new contemporary church / outreach...church for people who dont like church...so to speak.

    Full requirements: logo needs to show motion, action, casual, not churchy or traditional, hip, possible use of "wind" art, I like the "swoosh" graphics style (mac27), simple, open to a combo text and graphic or stylized text logo, logo will be used on everything from signage to literature to media.

    Name: crosswind

    Desired tagline: "reaching up / reaching out"

    Color scheme: see the attached cross logo with "your church"...the top sample of pms 308 and pms 133 looks good but open to combos.

    Desired style: abstract & flowing

    Notes to designers: attached is one weak attempt by me and a 2 samples that is appealing but not what I'm looking for. Keep it basic.

    Thank you for your time and expertise...

    Two samples of a text logo that I found showing motion...I am open to this direction or toward a graphic/text combo logo. The combo would probably serve our needs best.

    Man, that was quick...
    I need something that isnt so graphically heavy (does that make sense?) I think the defined cross pulls me into a traditional feel...need less churchy and cool.
    I attached a boat logo that has the feel I'm looking for but didnt hit the mark...

    not sure these attachments came thru on the first post...I like the colors and feel of the second...and the first was a weak stab by me.

    This is the style Im looking for...light, contemporary, free flowing, and simple...not churchy. I want to capture the feel of "crosswind" in this style. The graphic could stand alone or be paired with the text.

    Big fan of swooshes...but I need something more.

    I love the attached northstar logo...very contemporary and cool. I like that the graphic could stand alone as branding on everything or be combined with the text. This is what I want in "crosswind". Maybe try a swoosh style cross (abstract) with motion in the similar style as the north star...just a thought.

    Look at the attached again (love the color scheme on the top cross logo sample) can we work off these with the concept? Both appeal to me.

    Crosswind logo try

    Hello: Based on post number 11, I felt like I had some understanding in what your looking for. Here is my thoughts or logo Ideas, Something that is not hard but I guess easy on the eyes but yet eye catching. With swooshes. I did a couple of Ideas with the swooshes but I just kept changing them around as you can see from the post.

    Hello to everyone in the forum. :Painting:

    monyc...thank you for the versions.

    mac27...closer to what I'm thinking but not there yet. I keep going back to the northstar logo...wanting to capture that in mine. Your last needs a bit more weight so-to-speak. A bit too much emphasis on the cross.
