Scope of work
Two Rivers CDC is seeking a redesign of their logo. The design should be a representation the Native American communities including Alaskan Tribes without directly representing any one of them.

Two Rivers CDC, a Native American 501c3 organization, provides business counseling and resources to Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian business owners and communities.

  • Vision: Self-determination for Native communities and individuals through economic opportunities.
  • Mission: Promote economic opportunities and cultural respect through community engagement, and personal and business development.
  • Core Values
    • Respect for our community
    • High standards – meets legal, moral and ethical standards
    • Honesty / Integrity

The logo should consist of a type treatment for the official name, “Two Rivers CDC” and either a square or circular icon. We understand and honor the heritage that each tribe has and we would like to represent that in our redefined brand moving forward.

Please consider the following ideas for your design. We ask that not all are included. The logo and icon should be clean and clear, not cluttered or confusing. It is acceptable to include only one of the below concepts.

  • Eagle, Salmon or Bear
  • Water, fluidity, nourishment, connection
  • Totems that are seen in many of the tribal cultures.
  • Petroglyphs
  • Canoe/ paddles

In regard to colors. We would like earth-tone colors and to keep our existing color “Water” (Pantone 7462). To this you may add up to three colors but it is not required.
The logo will be used in a wide range of sizes that the final design will need to accommodate: business cards to banners.
The icon should be web-friendly for various social media sites.
Please plan on two rounds of modifications.
Final product, due on or before November 30, 2015, will be an editable Adobe Illustrator format of the completed logo and icon including the names of the fonts used and pantone colors used. Additional file types and sizes requested:
