Calling all creatives in our CareStar community!
CareStar is looking to define our visual identity and we need your help! We are seeking individuals who can design a creative, innovative and professional logo design.
The logo should be recognizable and help promote the CareStar mission:
“To encourage awareness of the home care worker and their contributions to the health care sector and the community at large”.
The CareStar Awards recognizes caregivers across New York and Nassau County who do exceptional work and give 5-star service to the elderly and disabled who cannot care for themselves or needs help with their activities of daily living. The logo should tell the story of how they work hand in hand with the client and reach for the stars. The logo should be original work and reflect the care and compassion of the caregivers toward the client.
Logo Contest Requirements
Professional: This logo will be featured on our website, our social media platforms, and other mediums (stationary, pamphlets, t-shirts, etc.). As a result, while we want the logo to be eye-catching, it must still be legible.
Theme: Logo must promote the mission of the CareStar Award. The design should be universal in theme and not nation-specific.
Color: The logo must use the CareStar blue and yellow. Additionally, the logo must look good in color (if any) or black and white.
