Creative Los Alamos is the representative name of the Los Alamos Creative District, a geographical boundary within the community of Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Creative Los Alamos represents the intersection of culture and science —showcasing the unique talents and intellectual power of the Los Alamos community. Creative Los Alamos invites the community and the world to participate in exploring the arts, science, technology, history, the natural environment and outdoor recreation.
It draws residents and visitors to downtown Los Alamos with a compelling blend of cultural programs, retail, restaurants, services, residential living, urban design, and architecture. Its creative vitality generates economic prosperity through new jobs and revenues, and its impact is felt far beyond its physical boundaries.
Creative Los Alamos intends to spark the inner genius of people who come to the district. The mission of Creative Los Alamos is to help people discover something new about themselves. Creative Los Alamos wants to spark creative inspiration, to spark a new perspective, to spark an appreciation within people that they are ¬creatively genius. We believe that everybody is inherently creative. We want to spark that realization inside the people who interact with our programming, and the many things that happen within the district.
"Spark" is the operative word, and the theme we’d like to portray in a logo.
Our target audience is people who are drawn to creativity, arts, culture, performance, learning, literature – but who would also like to interact with all those things. We want to appeal to people who love supporting their local community, who enjoy going downtown, who attend festivals,performances and art openings. Many of those people will have children, so there should be an element of fun and excitement in our logo - youthful but not being childish.
