We are a collection of implementers and researchers. All of the work we do is open source. Our #1 goal is to help strengthen community health programs in subSaharan Africa.
We are developing software that runs on phones to help community health workers-- but we are more inspired by the idea of providing useful tools for community health than any of the specific technology.
While the tool could be applied anywhere, we are mostly focused on rural areas of subSaharan Africa and have spent a lot of time working on these systems in Tanzania.
Targeted towards NGOs that want to use our tools in the field, potential funders, other researchers and similar projects. Some examples of each of those categories follows:
NGOs: For example CARE, BRAC, Pathfinder, Partners in Health, etc...
Potential funders: Gates foundation, IDRC, Rockefeller foundation...
Other researchers: Groups like TIER from UCB, MSR-India, the MIT media lab...
Similar projects: RapidSMS, FrontlineSMS, OpenMRS...
We want a logo, primarily for website, though we'd also like to be able to scale it down and put it on the phone (on a splash screen or login screen). The phones we currently use have either 128 × 160 or 240 x 320 resolution (we use 2 different models), so there's not a lot of space for a very busy logo.
Looking for something much more subdued, but I like the healthcare & community aspect of this. If it were not at an angle and incorporated a phone in some way, it seems like a good starting point. We work with both muslim and christian populations, so the cross is probably not great either. That all sounds like a pretty busy logo, so it might not work, just trying to help.
It could try to incorporate the letters CC, but doesn't need to. We have other projects that CommCare integrates with, so it would be beneficial if this logo was simple enough that it would be easy to combine with other logos by putting them side by side.
Note that we work closely with all the organizations listed in the target audience, so we do not want anything too similar to those orgs.
Things we do not want:
- Maps of Africa
- Religious symbols
