Family reunions are events that require careful, organized planning. With all of this careful organization involved, why not show everyone just how much time and effort you are putting into this event by including your organization into the fine details? I’m talking family reunion logos!
Why Have a Family Reunion Logo?
The purpose of a logo is so that others can easily recognize a group, even at the quick sighting of the simple picture. Family reunion logos let everyone know that you are one big group joining together for your special family reunion!
You should try to establish a logo from the very beginning, and stick to the one that you decide to use. Keeping the logo uniform on everything makes your planning appear well organized and thought out, and will give hints as to what to expect at the reunion.
A family reunion logo can and should be used on the website (if applicable), welcome letters, save-the-dates, invitations, t-shirts, hats, koozies, banners, decals, and whatever else you feel like branding for the family reunion. If you decide to have a family reunion logo, use it on everything!
Logo Ideas for Your Reunion
When it comes to designing a family reunion logo, less is more. Logos are meant to be simple and do not require much detail. Your logo should get your point across without words and without needing much space. With a family reunion, you want your logo to say that you are a family together at a family reunion celebration.
Tips for designing a logo:
- Use keywords in your message to generate ideas: “You are a family together at a family reunion celebration.” Keywords: family, together, celebration.
- Use family memories: If there is a special memory known to the whole family, this can make for a very special logo!
- Use location: Where will the location of the family reunion be?
- Use theme: Of course, if there will be a theme, this is a must to include in the logo!
Design concepts for a logo:
- Family symbols
- Tree (as in, the family tree)
- Hands joined
- Hearts together
- Smiling faces
- Happy places
Sample Family Reunion Logos
You know, anything that shows what a great and happy time the family reunion will be! A cute idea would be a silhouette of the United states, with lines from each location family will be coming from, with the lines all coming together in a heart at the location of the reunion. Or, a big sun in the background, with the silhouette of a family holding hands in the sunshine.These examples are simple and get a point across.
Another great thing to include in a logo is the year of the reunion. Of course everyone knows what year it is at the reunion, but years down the road, information like that becomes less clear. Having the year included in family reunion logos will help each family member remember the year it was just by looking at the logo on a saved t-shirt or koozie.
Every family and family reunion is different, so only you will know just the right thing to include in the logo. Make it personal, and make it fun!
