The Brief

Welcome Inn Community Centre is a non-profit in the north end of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. We are a group of people committed to alleviating poverty in Hamilton. Our core values are:

  • We welcome and accept all people as we are.
  • We practice kindness and respect for everyone.
  • We all have something of value to share and receive.
  • We are responsible to ourselves and to each other.
  • We are all part of building a healthy community.
  • We work together for peace and justice.

We are seeking to update and freshen our logo for use on our website, print, t-shirts and signage. We want the logo to point toward our values and have the following feel:

  • Warmth
  • Giving & receiving – reciprocity
  • Community
  • Fresh
  • No religious symbols, but spiritual feel is good
  • Openness
  • Growth

Please note that our colour is green.

Target Audience

Our audience is

  • the city of Hamilton, ON, Canada
  • people who are accessing our programs
  • people who have low income
  • professionals in social services
  • community minded donors

As a starting point, we were thinking maybe something with hands, or tree of hands growing…

really liking the designs that focus on growth and have some sort of mirroring image. Not too keen on any kind of structured “Inn” focus. Try to stay away from a building or “Inn” themes.

Brighter greens in the pantone range 367-370 are preferable to the darker hunter greens.
