A redesign of a logo for Malvern House college. An 'English as a foreign language' teaching college with three big schools in London and numerous affiliated colleges around the world. The redesign was really just a tightening up and standardising of their current logo, which is the words (Malvern House) and a globe symbol - dull I know!
The attached example was one of several 'you could do something like this' proposals. The idea was to take the initials (M h) and turn them into 'houses'. I quite like it but it's not quite right, it's not really 'happening'. Maybe it's too literal? I dunno, It just seems a little clumsy to me.
So if any of you could give me some starting points to turn it into something decent I'd be eternally grateful.
The type is still being discussed (!) but it will be similar to what's shown; simple sans, nicely spaced, nothing tricksy.
