NOTE: We DON'T like our current logo! The triangle means nothing to us. It was designed in the 90's. We want to move away from this design.
NOTE: Don't design the logo as SUNY Educational Technology Officers Association. If you include text, you can have "Educational Technology Officers Association" to define EdTOA. Then somewhere else you could have SUNY or you can integrate SUNY into the design. Do not put it before the name. However note: There are branding guidelines if you use SUNY. - https://www.suny.edu/brand/
This is the first step we are taking as an organization in order to re-brand our self. We are looking for a total departure from our current logo and branding.
Our current website will go away too but you can view it here: http://www.edtoa.suny.edu/
You can see why we want to start with a new brand.
With that being said the current text case we use is: Capital "E" Lowercase "d" Capital "TOA"
But, that is not written in stone. As long as the message is clear, if there's a more creative/modern/cool looking way to present a logo and our name we want to see it. However, historically we've always used EdTOA. (perhaps experiment with SUNY EdTOA) - These are just ideas.
Some designs have already come in which use SUNY and I like them, however note: There are branding guidelines if you use SUNY though - https://www.suny.edu/brand/
Maybe our new logo would look nice if it were in a similar fashion to the SUNY branding guidelines.
We will inevitably be putting this new branding onto some clothing (polo shirts and coats) so nothing too complicated or small text as embroidery tends to get expensive. But don't let that hold back your creativity.
As computer nerds, we trust your talent. If we could do this ourselves we would. :)
