Maplecrest is a church that is getting its first logo. It is a Canadian church and the flag for Canada has the Maple leave. Crest is referring to the top of a hill. The church is going to be an active church for people who want to be active and do things for others.
We're not sure about the colours. We've liked dark logos (e.g., bethel.com) and we've liked red logos (e.g., http://ctftoronto.com)
I've opened up the colour palette. We do like the punch and energy of the red, but I would be interested in two or three coloured logos.
I would like to see some logos that have more of a simple abstract feeling - like Target or Apple.
Images to consider, trees, fire, water, river, hill, maple leaf. I've been debating a cross in the design, I haven't minded a more abstract cross in some other logos. Here is an example: https://www.riverwood.cc
You may want to stay away from building imagery.
Hill imagery is great, but we live in the prairies so mountains would look odd for a logo in our area
I like the leaf design, but we might be interested in tree designs or just straight font designs as well.
