We would love to see the initials N & F in the form of a cross or in a ball or a combination of the two, in the design, but it is not a requirement. We do not want it to be incredibly busy and must be a clean design.
Our current logo is too busy and the colors are not captivating enough. We do not want the slogan incorporated. If you can get the .org in there that is fine, but again not required.
Check out our webpage at http://www.nowfound.org for content inspiration. Please do not try to pull inspiration from the images or logos on the site as we want this to be a fresh new design not just a reinvention of the old design.
The attached triangle logo was from a defense company I used to run. It is interpretive of the strength of a triangle and it actually shows a head being protected by two arms. Look hard enough and you can see it. It is not to be included in our ministry's logo, but hopefully can give inspiration of the type of designs that may be appealing to us.
I have also included a blue gradient button from a previous version of one of my websites that I hope can give a little inspiration as well again not looking for this button to be incorporated, but this blue truly resonates with me. If you can incorporate the gradient great, but again not needed.
Just added an NF logo to see what it would look like with each of the graphics. You can tweak the NF to better fit the designs with the gradients and such that you are using. I just wanted to see as this would probably be on the spine of a book or keychains and such. My file is just a quick rendition using gimp as I do not have photoshop or illustrator on this computer.
