Today’s lovely logo design is brought to you by Millennium Promise, fighting to end extreme hunger in sub-Saharan Africa.
What I think works best about this logo is what I interpret as a honeycomb, symbolizing the individual parts making the whole community. Bees work diligently to create a haven that sustains the hive. I am clearly into lots of colors these days, judging by most of my recent “likes” in my blog posts, but these colors seem to symbolize all people coming together to create a functioning system. A system that feeds the world’s people. Not to mention, they really pop. In a sea of green and blue non-profits, this one really stands out.
In our modern age of necessarily quick recognition, design by the pixel and gravatars, I especially love the honeycomb used in tiny spaces on the website. Check it out – it really functions very clearly in a distinct honeycomb pattern even when used on the People page as the “where our staff is” pin-points on the map.
On a side note, I found this interesting and super vague website that claims to be some sort of Logo Museum, called Logok. I was trying to find a usable version of the logo for this post and happened to find it there. They have amassed quite a collection of classic and contemporary logos. I really enjoyed nerding out over the Concept page.
