The company would like to see a logo that is:
classy, research-based, professional, learning oriented, evidence-based, education and learning oriented, elegant and simple.
We would like to focus on 2 concepts:
Bootstrapping (getting smarter together and "kicking butt") - would like to see a boot used as the "L" in "LSG" (see sketches)
Opening doors to math - would like to utilize the pi symbol and an opening doorway/series of opening doorways. The pi symbol could be plain (or like the piled rocks at Stonehenge to look like pi).
The companies main commitments/goals are: are listening to kids. kids at the wheel, building on kid's ideas, bootstrapping, establishing foundational knowledge for teachers and teaching smarter. If you have any particular ideas connected with any of these ideas, that would be great too.
Please see the attached sketches for references to the companies 2 concepts.
