Project description

NüGlarus is a new regional digital initiative, supporting the region and Kanton of Glarus on its digital transformation journey as a platform for ideas, exchange and as a marketplace especially regarding internet connection and (co)innovation and startup support, helping companies and private individuals to unlock innovation based on digitization...

You find the flag of Glarus here... 

our saint patron fridolin is the only person in a flag in the whole of switzerland. He should be present somehow on the logo.... something should represent the internet, connectivity or digitial, but the logo needs to be able to appeal to ordinary and older people to (recognition effect). Fridolin should not be standing but walking, i.e. be in movement... the instrument he usually carries (stick and book) are probably to be better removed or replaced by something more in context (e.g. a globe as in the sample logo on the web page here, e.g. top globe png attached)... he should walk on red ground (maybe use 3-4 colors fading to white as in the sample below but less continous)..
you could also add a tablet instead of the book... 

the logo should also be simple with not too many colours... possibly mainly white background. 2 versions, One with the NüGlarus text on both sides and one without, one in black white and one in colour.  The logo has to be drafted professionally and we need all colour codes for the print outs. 

you could add a movement (e.g. globe spinning) in versions of the logo. as font you may use for example calibri 23pt bold. 

some more context: "Nü" is the swiss german word for "new"... new glarus is a colony of Swiss from our region in the US who had to emigrate because of lacking economic possibilities centuries ago... now we start this journey into cyberspace... to nüglarus and not new glarus which was a physical place.

  • hiiii, ok, you won. lets go now
  • ah yes.. and we'll need the base file.. what is that, PSD (Photoshop)?
  • can you still make some adjustments? 1) fridolin should be walking down instead of left 2) the hand holding the globe is too big.. try to take hand of second placed youlistina, which seems to circle the globe on the finger tip like a basket ball 3) add ".ch", the domain as a variant of the logo... then we'll need jpd and eps (vector graphics) with sofficiently high resolution and description of colour s as well as black white version. do you have an email adrdress? mine is rbalmer3@gmx.ch
  • ok, looks like we have a majority for your logo!

  • thx... i'll have this also voted by the management and the steering board now and will get back to you once this is done (you'll start in pole position)... kr roberto
  • thanks.. maybe you can make fridolin walk down instead of to the left by mirroring his left foot ?
  • i still don't like the feet ... in our sample logo i think the directions of them is quite correct, and should not be far from the original image... but i'm sure wwe could fix in 1-1
  • great.. we'll have to work on the feet:) try to vertically mirror the left foot of fridolin (on your right).. but you're still in pole...
  • or turn the globe so it sits vertical on his finger?
    • About #14, @rbalmer3
      ok. i'll try to change. thanks

  • looks good.. no 1 now... can you mirror the globe vertically and make fridolin walk "down" by changing the direction of his left (on the picture right) foot..?
  • Mr Pixel tech logo #18
  • thanks! best logo until now i think... i like the red-black globe.. maybe you can mirror fridolin and have him walking between nü and glarus, maybe you can add a tablet to his left hand and maybe you can make theground more fade away as horizon, by adding 2-3 shades of red (no gradient as needs to be easily printable, i.e. few colors)...
    • About #4, @rbalmer3
      ok. i'll try to change. thanks

  • maybe you can also have a go with the top_globe.png attached and use calibri 23 bold
