Dixon Public Schools Master Plan

Competition: #1746
Client: BrainSpaces
Open: 16 August 2014
Close: 05 September 2014

Winning entry by ... aderezo


The Brief

Dixon Public School District, in Illinois, is embarking on a school/community planning effort to address how their elementary, middle and high school buildings can better support evolving educational needs in the 21st century. This logo will “brand” the master planning effort to distinguish it from other District-led initiatives.

The message (to be incorporated into the logo somehow) is “our city, our students, our future” and should also include “plan Dixon schools”.

The logo will be included on the district’s website as a link to information about the master planning process such as dates/events, notes, surveys, etc. It will also be used on printed fliers, posters, handouts, letterhead and mailers. (so a B/W version may be needed).

Dixon is a beautiful historic city established in 1830 and located on the Rock River, about 2 hours west of Chicago.

Let’s try some without the “plan Dixon Schools” requirement. Also, check out the website at www.plandixonschools.info to see where the logo will be used : )

Are there images or icons that you would like represented in your logo?

2014-08-19 01:41:48 UTC


thanks for the question, artboy, but I don’t think we have any preferred icons, but there have been some ideas thrown around by our leadership team.

one idea mentioned is to use a tree-like icon with city, students, and the future as leaves or branches of some sort. the District’s tag-line (unrelated to the master planning effort) is “a place to grow” and it could be nice to play off of that

another idea was to have kids at the center, surrounded by parents, then teachers, then community – suggesting the broad extent of resources required to support student success

but we don’t want to direct the process too much, thinking that we should tap the creative resources of those of you who are good at this sort of thing, and we’re excited to see what you come up with…

thanks again!

Also, there’s an archway over the Main Street to Dixon, plus an archway at the entrance to the historic high school. One suggestion was to use that shape in the logo. The header images on www.plandixonschools.info include randomized photos and a few show these archways, if you’re interested

Art boy, am liking your first and last entries. Thanks!

Thanks. Please let me know if you want to see any revisions. You can also leave comments for individual designers on the individual entry pages if that’s easier for you. Also helps eliminate confusion.
