How Candlelight Run started their logo design journey
Candlelight Run is one of the largest night races in the Southeast. It is a charity race and we use the proceeds to support local non-profits. To get more information on our event, please visit our website at http://www.candlelightrun.com for pictures and event details. We have a 5k Race and a 1 mile Fun Run/Walk.
Last year's event had nearly 2,300 participants. The race is unique due to its nighttime setting and because the entire course is lit by 2,500 luminaries.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Primary audience is age 20-50 and fitness-minded.
We would like a new logo to be used over the next several years. We like our current logo for its simplicity and readability. We don't necessarily like that it's a rectangle shape which makes the working appear smaller on shirts or hats. We are open to new suggestions so that we can take our event to the next level. We use logo in print ads, online ads, posters, hats, t-shirts, oxford shirts to name a few.
CandlelightRun.com should be in name. We may be open to dropping .com but are leaning towards keeping it.
Name should be readable.
Need Color Version and Black & White Version.
Final file format must be provided as a vector, Adobe Illustrator eps or ai (CS3 compatible). Layers should be in vector.
We don't want a busy logo. Should be sleek yet hip with professional edge.
