Hello NCE students!
You may have noticed our brand new logo. Don’t be alarmed, we’re the same program, only renewed! This logo depicts a weaving, representing how NCE strives to unite and strengthen Nashville through our accessible, diverse enrichment opportunities. The weaving also signifies the bonds formed between classmates and instructors, our own mini-communities within Nashville.
To come up with this concept NCE worked with local designer, Stephanie Simkin of Stone & Steel Creative, who assessed our brand through a focus group and detailed discussions with staff. After several revisions we came to an agreement that this mark best represented our work.
We hope this modern and dynamic logo attracts a new audience of students and instructors. We never want to alienate our current participants, many of whom have been with us for several years; we only want to bring more supporters into our loyal community. In order for NCE to continue enriching the diverse fabric of our city, we must continue appealing to, and welcoming, a broad swath of Nashvillians. We hope this new look will convey that message.
Do you like the new logo? Let us know in the comments, on Facebook or Twitter! Use the hashtag #goNCE in your post.
