The traditional logo for a Republican organization is the Republican elephant. (See e.g., http://electionkatz.wikispaces.com/…phant.gif)
We would like our logo to go beyond the traditional Republican elephant, portraying the elephant in a new or fresh way. While we welcome a variety of submissions, we have come up with the following two initial ideas as a starting point.
EMBLEM: The Cook County Republican Party utilizes an emblem that contains (i) the name of the organization around the edge, (ii) the Chicago skyline in the background, and (iii) a non-traditional red Republican elephant in the foreground. (See http://www.cookrepublicanparty.com/) We could do something similar for our logo, except (i) the name of the organization would be "Schaumburg Township Republican Organization" or "Schaumburg Township Republicans" if the former is too long to fit around the edge, and (ii) instead of the Chicago skyline in the background, we could something similar to the barn, tree, and tower silhouette utilized in the Schaumburg Township logo (see http://www.schaumburgtownship.org/).
PICTORAL MARK: The Palatine Township Republican Organization uses a non-traditional Republican elephant, comprised of bright, glossy colors and a raised elephant trunk. (See http://palatinerepublicans.org/rep/index.php.) We could also do something like that for our organization.
In any case, the objective is to create a new, fresh brand that will help attract younger members and can be used on our website, letterhead, online social media, etc. Alterative designs could include the abbreviation "STRO" instead of the full name of the Schaumburg Township Republican Organization, and could include the name of our local party chairman "Ryan Higgins, Committeeman".
