The current logo has some balance issues that prevent it from being able to flex and fit different formats.
With the icon set, the question shifts to how we write the name. With an icon so sharp and clean, I would recommend a softer serif font to create contrast.
The typeface P22 Mackinak is structured similarly to the original logo, so it retains some equity. It strikes a great balance between professional and personal. This helps present a polished image when working with governments, while retaining a friendly image when working with people they are advocates for.
The original logo uses enlarged capital letters at the start of each word. This draws attention to the “NCTTC” initials.
When pairing the icon with the text, the first option I would recommend would be using a combination of the initials and the full name.
This allows someone to quickly digest what they are looking at while still retaining all the information necessary.
The first line of text is justified to the edge of the initials, giving a clean lean and softening the tapering rag created by the full name.
This version excludes the initials and uses only the name. It requires a slightly wider footprint than the previous version.
It is interesting that in this lockup, “North Coast Tribal” is on the top half of the icon with the trees, while “Transportation Commission” resides on the lower half with the road.
When stacking the configuration, it would most likely be best to use a centered text justification to properly balance the logo.
