The name "Edge Learning" was chosen to convey 2 things: 1) That we are helping to provide students a COMPETITIVE EDGE that will allow them to breakthrough barriers and succeed; 2) That we use CUTTING EDGE technology in the form of adaptive software and advanced personal tutoring and organizational strategies.
The attached file ("EDGE LEARNING template") indicates a rough sketch of what we're looking for. We want the logo to be simple, clever, modern, and professional (not childish). And we especially want it to convey the two connotations of "Edge" mentioned above. The image we've provided shows the letter E as a circuit board, to convey the notion of "cutting edge" and technology. The top line of the E is longer than the other two and a brighter color, to convey the notion of "competitive edge"; in other words, the top line has a competitive advantage and is racing ahead of the other two lines.
That is the basic concept we are looking for. We are really looking for someone to make our idea come to life in a more professional and artistic way, and to make the idea of "competitive edge" more evident. We also want it to be more obvious that the infrastructure of the E is composed of circuit board lines. We are flexible on the fonts and the colors (though generally we like blues and greens).
The other attached images are stock photos from the internet that inspired us. They should give you an idea of what speaks to us.
Thanks, we look forward to seeing your ideas!
