Building Castles is a new charity in Australia aimed at supporting genius children.
The catch is that all kids are geniuses, just not in the ways most academic based school curriculums define them. Building Castles believes that children become what they imagine themselves to be and not what they are taught through mere reason alone.
Classical education seeks to refine the reasoning/logical process of thought and subsequently much of a child’s creativity and lateral thinking is lost. Building Castles seeks to provide children opportunity to engage in experiences larger than their world and foster a greater sense of creativity, ingenuity, design, entrepreneurship and confidence in a range of practical, artistic, environmental and sporting areas.
The basic idea is to lay foundations in a child’s life so that they can build castles in the sky!
There are not many boundaries to this competition. The very nature of the organisation lends to a very creative, free flowing, artistic design, but having said that there are a few things I’d like to note.
- I’d like it to have the design of a castle involved. I have no concrete ideas yet of how that design should be incorporated, but it should include an easily recognizable castle design.
- While principally allowing for an organic design, I’m still partial to strong bold lines and simplistic designs.
- It should be colourful!! It should represent imagination!!! It should represents dreams! I really am looking for something uniquely creative and hope that I’ve given enough to work with.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
While principally the target audience is pre and primary age children (0 – 12), the logo has to have a corporate appeal for potential sponsors and partners, as well as engaging with parents and care givers.
