Logo Design for Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline, a Nonprofit

The logo design created for the Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline (IDVH), a domestic violence nonprofit organization, is a direct representation of the hotline’s mission and function. In order to bridge together the power and hope that this organization brings to those who have experienced abuse, the organization wanted a clearly identifiable mark. Consequently, we chose to use the most literal elements possible in the iconography such as a map of Illinois, a “chat” bubble” and the color purple representative of the movement. The overall image conveyed is highly utilitarian, resembling a public service; a message that IDVH is a phone call away to stand with survivors every step of their journey. This nonprofit logo design truly captures the function and mission of this important organization.
