We are a church but we don't want religious symbols in the logo, nor do we want the logo to feel "churchy" or "religious". It should be trendy and simple; something that is easy to remember yet piques interest.
Having said that, the logo definitely needs to contain the word "edge". I'd like to see some designs with "edge" and some with "edge church" too, as I'm not sure which would look better. Our official church name is The Edge Church.
The logo should include artwork and not simply be text in a specific font.
I am most excited about the wide variety of logos we will see so don't hesitate to stretch the limits of what I've said here or try a concept logo that you're not sure about - you never know what we will chose!
Finally, we need final version to include vector, web, print and standard formats so that it can work on mobile, tablet, website, printed merchandise, etc.
