Project description

This is a logo designed for use on a website, business cards and reports that is appropriate for a small non-profit charity that develops innovative solutions to environmental challenges in the United States, mostly focused on water, habitat, wildlife.  It deals with complex issues like for-profit conservation called "conservation finance" which is the business side of environmental work; and deals with innovative policy that will help get the latest technology and software put to use to benefit freshwater supplies, clean water, and healthy ecosystems.  The group is focused on markets/ free market approaches.

Examples of similar organizations include
http://efcnetwork.org/
http://www.conservationfinancenetwork.org/
http://www.ecosystemmarketplace.com/
https://althelia.com/
http://impactassets.org/
http://www.forest-trends.org/

Emphasis of the name is on the word 'innovation' or 'policy innovation';
the logo cannot be focused around the acronym 'EPIC' which is already in use by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, although graphics that elicit connection to things that are 'epic' or 'innovative'

(Emphasizing the point above - please do not use EPIC in your design submission.)

5/14 - An update ... I like a lot of the designs, but if you have ideas that don't involve lightbulbs or trees, please submit as we are still not set on those as ideal.  In particular, if you have ways to use graphics that invoke markets (think carbon market, trading, investment, etc.) please share but we know that is a tough lift compared to nature themes. 

A few appealing logos:

Not the image but the way they captured the word 'empower' in this one https://cdn.spellbrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/empower-foundation-logo.jpg

In the words "environmental policy innovation center" emphasis (bigger words, stronger color, stronger font) should always be on 'innovation' (1st choice) or 'policy innovation' (tied 2nd choice) or 'innovation center' (tied 2nd choice) and never on 'environmental'

5/22 update - please keep in mind that the fonts will need to be readable when on a business card; 'environmental' not 'enviromental;'  top 6-8 designs from the first week are ranked as such.
