I wanted to develop a logo mark that represented the various groups of people coming together to form this coalition. I wanted it to feel positive, but to also be symbolic of the seriousness of the topic of diabetes. I had very specific direction to avoid pointy edges, which might be reminiscent of the needles used when treating the condition. Here was my solution:
I'm pleased to report that the committee is very happy with the result:
I just wanted to let you know that everyone on the Executive Committee loved the final version of your logo, and we’ve started to design the new web page around it. I’ll let you know when it’s live. I hope you are happy with your work. You did an amazing job, and we are all very grateful. Hopefully, the new image ushers in a new era of involvement and ups the excitement quota.
In addition to their kind commentary, they sent me a completely unexpected Amazon gift certificate yesterday, and I decided to buy a few of the items that have long lingered on my Amazon Wishlist. I think (hope?) that these three books will be representative of how I spend my time in my new cable TV-less country life. I'm very much looking forward to knitting, gardening, and baking bread in my spare time.
