Clothing Brand for Children Advice

Hi, Everyone

First post...but don't go easy on me! :)

I'm doing my final project at University in Graphic Design and have created a brand for a range of clothing and accessories to be sold in the store Go Outdoors. It aims to raise awareness of the issues of not enough children getting outside, exercising and experiencing the benefits of nature. I have attached what I have so far for the brand but I'm painfully aware that it doesn't strike a cord with the correct target market (children). The main concept behind it is to use the initals of GO and P from Play to create a tree shape. I think it is the tree shape itself that looks out of place and perhaps too corporate, I'm looking for advice on how I can keep the concept but make it more attractive to a younger audience.

Any help is appreciated!

Look for help to tailor to correct target market.

I'd suggest making the type larger and drawing the tree in a more casual, freeform style, and try using a different color (or at least a different shade of green) inside each of the 3 circles.

Remember though, it's not children who need to be convinced to open their wallets...

Thanks, your replies are really helpful...

Attached is an amendment to the design, let me know if you think it's better!

Its enormousness...sorry!

Can you post a smaller version that fits without scroll bars? Maybe like 400 pixels wide?

BTW you can right-click and open to see the whole thing.

Thanks, I didn't think of right-clicking.

@hrant: well still... OP is in the graphic design university and business. They should be easily capable to create/post smaller images. And especially since this logo doesn't have such detail that this huge image would make any sense...

Of course. But that's no reason to refuse to help (even on an older Mac system where you would need both hands :-).
