The logo depicts several of what the DREAM center stands for. A dancer is depicted, a paint brush and pencil which incorporates the arts and musical notes for music. The color version uses primary and secondary colors; colors that children are familiar with and see often. The Dream font is playful because of these colors and because they are large and oversized. I choose to make them transparent so the viewer could not only see what was behind them, but because it adds a"dreamlike" effect.
The black and white version incorporates many of the elements above, but has a sketchier feel.
