Dear all,

You may know that we were working in our community from last year. Where we started our journey lonely while opening Fatima Jinnah Educational Complex. Where we were facing number of problems in different shapes but the suggestions of international & national volunteers persuaded us to expend our network & get support from local community.

So we arranged too many meetings with different people of our community. After measuring their thoughts, observing their views, their sense of realization & devotion we came to conclusion that there is a great charm to work on our projects with the support of local community.

In order to work in the better environment our members, board of directors & the whole team decided to register our own NGO. For this aim we thougt a lot & selected the name of NGO & its logo but the board members disclosed their interest to ask internationally from volunteers & all to suggest us through their kind views.

Name of NGO was decided unanimously HOPE Organization which stands for: Helping Oppressed & Promoting Education.

Now we need your kind views about the name, logo & monogram of NGO. Please suggest us as soon as possible.

Thanks a lot for your kind attention,

Adnan Khan.

Hi Adnan,

I agree with the people that have said your logo is confusing (too many fonts, colours, drawings etc). The logo would be much more impactful if it was more simple, so that people could immediately recognise it and link it to your organisation.

Thanks,

Ana

Hi Jennifer

I completely missed the kite until you pointed it out, because its in the background and not very obvious. I also like that image because it is quite simple and the book links it to education which is the main focus of the organisation.

Salman-

For me, the graphic of the adult holding up a child evoke the impression that the organization is about maternal and/or child health issues. In the first example, in the background there is a kite with a book as a kite - that evokes thoughts of literacy/education which will be what NGO is focused on. I really like the kite because it brings thoughts of kite running - and with the book it brings thoughts of "chasing education/literacy."

Dear All,
Salman's idea of the logo is quite simple and precise, It really gets the whole thing right. I suggest we choose from his. This is also due to production costs that would be incurred if the first suggestions are made. Salman's carries meaning and the production is less. Prodution here is in terms of placing it on items like T-shirts, Cups, pens, caps, tiles et al.

THANK YOU,

Hi neighbors,
i think it is not good to use so many small pictures as a single logo because it may confuse viewers. i suggest that you choose one single picture especially the one in black and white with hands up, then on the right hand of the picture put the word HOPE then under the word hope you put all those many small words. remember that a logo its self represents the vision and activities of the organization. then the colors used also have to represent the activities. for example green -for agricultural and environmental based organizations. please make make it very simple for people to understand what the organization deals with.
alternatively, the black and white is good, the abbreviations can remain at the bottom and then the small words can all be put at the right hand side of the picture and their size be increased a little more.

The black and white logo looks great but it is not seen from the picture that HOPE is helping through education. The writing at the very bottom is super small and may be hard to read to find out how HOPE is actually helping. I think this education thing should be visible from the picture. Though I think there is not so much about the logo, the logo matters very little in comparison to what the organization does, how effective it is...some organizations have downright terrible logos but who cares...if their work is good then it is good.The work itself is the best promotion. And if some organizations are ineffective, the best logo in the world will not save them.

Best to all, Tanja

the tied hands should be simplified and made bold, the two children holding a flag of book should be visible in the background and should not interfere with letters p&e.

Hi Adnan

Am very happy to see that you and others in the area are getting organised and forming a NGO! I like the anme.

I agree with what several others have already said about the logo. Logos are often printed/displayed at a very small size, so it can be hard to see lots of detail, so go with something simpler.

As Salman is a graphic designer, I am wondering if the two of you could work together to produce something that is simpler, but still reflects the work that your NGO will be doing?
