A lovely 'quick & free' job (literally) for the good of our village. As part of the local schooling in Corris, we are lucky enough to have a pre-school too. The Cylch (pronounced 'kill-kh' roughly translated as 'circle' in Welsh) is 'a place for children aged 2½–4 to learn through play in a safe, secure and stimulating environment, through the medium of Welsh'.
In order to secure future funding and staffing levels required, the facilities needed better promoting to the local and surrounding communities. With no logo in existance, I was asked by the committee if I could help by creating a simple new identity for use on signage and marketing materials to create greater awareness of the Cylch.
To be authentic, I created the basis for the new logo using 'playschool' poster paints, by hand – the simple swirl incorporating the 'circle' theme and C of Corris, with the colours inspired by the natural surroundings of trees, sky and the river Dulas. The resulting logo is striking and compact in its simplicity.
The colours of the logo also form the colour palette for the fuller identity too, along with a child-friendly VAG Rounded font for text.
A suitably child-like identity for a great local group.
