We want a feeling of lightness, of flying and freedom. Think of Bubbles, Wings, Sky. Too mechanical or too masculine and aggressive will not work. We want to convey a feeling of safety and freedom, not fear and aggression. This is not a logo for a biker gang,or a multinational cold corporation but a group of free-flight pilots wanting to help others.
Consider the drawing (attached file) of Da Vinci of the man-in-the-circle. Use an image like this, modify for ADAPTIVE & give it wings. Think broadly about the idea and the PURPOSE of the organization.
The purpose of the organization needs to be identifiable though the logo, without having to spend 10 minutes explaining what it all means.
This logo needs to be able to be EMBROIDERED on baseball caps, as well as being printed on business cards, flyers, stationery and T-shirts and other MERCHANDISE.
PLEASE take the time to read and understand the brief and the comments to all designers. If you don't take the time to do that and your design reflects this, I won't take the time to give you feedback, but I will rather use my time to respond to designers who clearly read and understood the brief and spent some time thinking about their designs.
