We tried to design a symbol that looked eco-friendly as well as had a strong relation to Sydney. We chose to use a strong Sydney icon, the Opera House, and use green as a colour aswell as make the parts of the Sydney Opera house look likes leaves.
It is a simple design with limited contrast in colour, the use of only two different shades of green, keeps its simplicity. It clearly represents aspects of the Opera House as well as giving an environmental feel with the shape of the points and representing the water, by constructing a reflecting with a different tone.
This symbol uses negative space well, as well as having the symbol design inverted in colour, although the use of type is not often used when designing a symbol, it was placed to show application of design.
This symbol is similar to the first one, but does not replicate a reflection, instead uses different tones to show the different points of the Opera House and is still a simple and elegant symbol design.
