We need something eye catching that can be used as the masthead on our website, but then adjusted for letterhead and other uses. Because we are a nonprofit with little funding it needs to look good in black and white. Full color is preferred for the website.
We are very open to you being creative. With that in mind, here are some common images used locally. You are not required to use any of them. This is to give you a frame of reference or starting points.
The Flint Hills - Contrary to the common image of flat Kansas, we are in the Flint Hills Region. These are low hills with some of the last native tall grass prairie in North America.
The Sunflower - The sunflower is the state flower of Kansas. You can see how it was used in the attached file. It is a nice illustration of how we are part of the community, but add diversity to the community.
Kansas State's color is royal purple. It might be nice to reference, but we are not a part of the university.
The "Little Apple" - Manhattan has used this term for decades. It's obviously a play on Manhattan, New York's use of "The Big Apple."
Photos from our Facebook page may be used in the design.
Please stay away from common Kansas stereotypes. Specifically, do not use references to "The Wizard of Oz" or tornadoes. Or use very carefully.
However, incorporating a rainbow should be considered. It would help identify us as an lgbt support group.
