ediemdooley got their new logo design by running a design contest:
99nonprofits: High elevation tree nonprofit needs clean, sophisticated, bold logo
Check out ediemdooley's Logo design contest…
one logo should say Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation, a similar logo should instead say "Whitebark Friendly Ski Area"
The Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation is a 501(c)3 science-based non-profit devoted to the preservation of whitebark pine and other western high elevation five-needle white pine ecosystems. We aim to prevent and reverse the decline of these ecosystems through: Education, Research & Development, and Restoration & Management…..in collaboration with Organizations, Government Institutions, Individual Communities, and YOU! Our target audience is people who care about these trees. These people are mostly people that recreate in the high country in the west, and also federal land management workforce who are the majority of the people that manage the landscapes where this tree occurs. However, as a nonprofit attempting to transition from an all volunteer, working board to at least one paid staff, we are trying to raise money and awareness, and to elevate our presence in the community of people who care about land management in the West. Our current pressing challenge is to raise money to support whitebark pine restoration efforts. We are hoping to attract sizable donations from philanthropic individuals and organizations who care about preserving high alpine ecosystems and these magnificent trees. Really the only developed places (i.e. non wilderness) that people encounter these trees is at ski areas. Therefore, we are starting a "Whitebark Friendly Ski Area" Certification program to recognize and help guide ski areas that are making an effort to protect and restore their whitebark pine resource, as well as to inform their patrons about the ecology and decline of this tree. Therefore, the logo that will be re-designed for the Foundation, will need to be adaptable to also have a version that says "Whitebark Friendly Ski Area" and should incorporate skiing themes somewhere in the design
Logo types to explore
The first image uploaded below is our current logo (plus headline banner) from our website: http://whitebarkfound.org/ The image is too busy and hard to print, plus too outdated. We want the new image to also incorporate the tree, or the cone, or the needles. Most of the board desires to have an image of the tree, but in order to be recognizable as a whitebark pine (rather than just a generic pine tree) the image of the tree needs to appear like the characteristic whitebark pine (gnarly form, upswept branches, irregular branching patter, charismatic). The challenge is to capture this unique character of the tree without it becoming too busy, or too stylized like a generic tree. This is not a generic green campaign, so we will not select any type of logo that has that look. IE stylized leaves... We want the logo to be bold, more youthful and also dignified like the tree itself. We want it to be more graphic and simple so that it can visually compete with other logos that would be on a ski resort map (think Mtn. Dew and Black Diamond). The version that says "Whitebark Friendly Ski Area" should have some skiing visual such as a ski lift, skis, a snowboard, poles, etc. The photos with people are of our annual field trips to a whitebark pine site so that you can get a sense of what we do, and who our audience is. People that come to these meetings are our core membership (ie ecologists, researchers, Forest Service and other land management employees). These hiker, nature, scientist types are the people that already care about the tree. We are trying to attract more of these people, namely the ones that don't work on or for the tree, but who appreciate it and like to recreate amongst it, as well as people that aren't quite as outdoorsy, and maybe are armchair conservationists. Therefore, we want our logo to speak to a broader set than the types in the photo.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo design starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
ediemdooley collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
