Bay Area Science Festival
The Bay Area Science Festival is a 10 day Bay Area wide celebration of the unique science and technology of the region. Scientists from our local universities, companies, and museums will share their stories, passion, and science at over 200 events. Programs will feature hands-on-activities, provocative conversations, electrifying performances, and tours of cutting-edge facilities. Science is heading out of the lab and into our community so it can be accessible for all.
The festival is a collaboration of many local institutions including universities, science museums, professional laboratories, corporations, and community groups. Over the 10 days, there will be a variety of cross-discipline dialogues, star parties, science cafes, laboratory tours and open houses, all culminating with a final science carnival geared to have 50,000 attendees. The festival brings together 3 regions of the Bay: San Francisco, East Bay, and South Bay.
Simply put it will be the best of science by the Bay.
Festival launches in Fall of 2011.
75% of events will be geared to youth/families. Of that group, 33% should be from under served populations who don't typically have access to science.
25% of event will be geared to adults, specifically 18-49, college educated.
Logo will be the center of a huge promotional campaign used on web, print materials, banners, and t-shirts across the San Francisco Bay Area.
Looking for a clean design that exudes:
Logo should contain the name "Bay Area Science Festival". Graphics, icons, etc. are up to you. Clean modern fonts encouraged.
Emphasis on a clean, almost elegant look - but still retaining a bit of energy.
With the 3 regions coming together, I would want 3 colors in the scheme (white can be one of the colors). With the fall timing, orange stands out, but be creative with the pallette. Must be able to be used in Black and White as well as color.

Being too Cartoony
Logos we like:
http://www.sciencechicago.com/ (love the iconic Chicago branding along with science)
http://www.sdsciencefestival.com/ (a little youthful for my taste - but enjoy the energy of it)
http://www.calacademy.org/ (As a potential partner, our logo cannot be too similar)
Winner will potentially have more work as we are looking for a web design, t-shirts, and a great deal of print work over the next year.
If we accept your design, we expect to have all the rights to use and/or alter this logo. Logo will be trademarked.
