Describe your company and organization and target audience

Recovery Shop is the e-commerce name that we use for our online store front.

We are a retail shop as one might see with our current design which features the word RECOVERY over the word SHOP and a shopping cart.

Our audience is comprised of people of all different backgrounds. Currently, we have a large segment of the older population aged 50-75 years of age. The face of addiction is changing with the epidemic level problems our nation is facing with heroin and methamphetamine. Many young people are being introduced to recovery much sooner than in previous times. We would love to catch the eye of millennial, or better yet
"Generation Z."

We do not however, want to focus on people that are not old enough to have experience with drugs and alcohol or minors in other words.

Here is a full bio from Google: The Recovery Emporium has actively served local, regional, national, and international recovery communities for nearly 20-years. We are known for our extraordinarily low-cost meeting materials, recovery medallions, and 12-Step gifts.

Our location is setup primarily in a warehouse format due to the bulk of our sales occurring by way of being an E-commerce location. Walk-ins are welcomed, and we look forward to serving you.

A member of an organization who serves the local recovery community? We would be happy to meet you and welcome the opportunity to further grow our existing network of healthcare professionals, community corrections facilities and personnel, and 12-Step groups in the areas surrounding Parkersburg, WV.

The design should have the following

We just did a contest and nobody focused on the "recovery" aspect of our business. It was very disappointing and though the designs were terrific they were worthless if they don't point back to something related to helping folks who suffer from addiction.

We provide a service to groups in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Heroin Anonymous, etc. Failure to capture some essence of freedom from addiction such as the use of one of our recovery medallions will result in our not choosing a logo.

We are from West Virginia. The colors used in the WVU football team's logo would be an appropriate color scheme. We don't want a football design though.

We are a "one-stop-shop" carrying literature, recovery medallions, greeting cards, etc.

The design should be bold, and something that could serve in a header for our company, as well as, in print materials such as our business cards.

I would recommend viewing our Google+ profile or our Facebook sites for some previous designs which can be found by searching RECOVERYSHOP, or RECOVERY EMPORIUM.

The design may use items such as "The Little Big Book Dictionary" for inspiration or our RE™ Medallions. Here are two things that might be used as they are our unique recovery items or gifts.

The dictionary is our biggest seller. We sometimes refer to ourselves as "The Home of the Little Big Book Dictionary."

This is our unique design for a recovery medallion:

This design belongs to our company and so there is no issue with using it.

Often the ideas related to a phoenix, or something similar that goes through a metamorphosis (significant change) can be used to relate to our customers.

This logo will be used for

  • Online (Website, facebook etc.)
  • Print (business cards, letterheads, brochures etc.)
  • Merchandise (mugs, t-shirts etc.)
  • Signs (including shops, billboards etc.)
  • Television/screen

This design should not have this in the entries

The design should not include anything that may create a copyright issue such as the letters AA, NA, etc.

The design should have nothing that relates our company to recycling, computer repair or document recovery services, etc. This would be a mistake.

What style of logo would you like?

Colors to use in the design

Blue and Gold such as the shades found in the state colors (quick reference the WVU Moutaineer Football team), Black and White may be fine as well.
