Design the ICCO logo!
While the old logo served its purpose, with a new ICCO we
want to present a new logo that will illustrate what the ICCO is all about. To
do this we will be having a logo submission competition open to everyone and
the best logo will be selected as the official ICCO logo displayed everywhere.
Submit your logos by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can see the latest submissions online via the Mac Mississauga Facebook Page.
The ICCO logo should embody the concept of community and
Islam. Most of the submissions we’ve received so far are either a masjid, or
just a play on the four letters I C C and O. The logo doesn’t have to be any of
these, don’t be scared to do some creative and unique.
Whatever logo we decide to finally use has to go on all our
print materials, ads, banners, web pages and even contracts. Simply put, it has
to be versatile. Flat logos are better than gradients; the image needs to look
good whether it’s big, small, colored, black and white and so on. Could your
submission be engraved easily or is it too intricate? Can be printed on a
transparent surface? Do the colors clash with a white background or a black
This contest is open to any sort of submissions. Whether
you’ve made a 3D render or drawn it out with pencil crayons, if we like it we
will ask for more. We are however looking for something special in a
logo and would love to see something impressive. Please note that any logos submitted are considered to be
entitled to be used by MAC and MAC affiliates and all intellectual property
rights will be waived. But don’t worry; you’ll receive recognition for your
What is the ICCO?
The Islamic Community Centre of Ontario was once a focal
point for community activity in the GTA, and it was more than just a place of
worship. It brought together Muslims from all over Toronto to enjoin in prayer,
recreation, education and celebration. For families it was a great way to keep
in touch with other Muslims, and for the youth it was a centre for guidance,
activity and knowledge. I was one of the youth that grew up in that era. For
us, the ICCO was an integral part of our lifestyle and in its absence it was
sorely missed. This year we have the opportunity to give back by creating this
community centre and making it a gift for future generations.
The ICCO was more than just a place of worship; it was the
heartbeat of the Islamic Community.
