Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our subtitle / motto (which won't be incorporated into the logo) is: "A place of Christian formation and contemplation".
Our organization is a small Christian retreat center on a beautiful 10-acre, wooded parcel in the Sierra Nevada foothills of rural Northern California. We will be (once we're started) focused on offering retreats and classic Christian formation resources to small groups and individuals. We will also offer silent retreat hermitages (small cabins where people can experience solitude). We're all about roots and deep history. Iona House is named after the island of Iona off the coast of Scotland where Saint Columba established a monastery in the 6th century that was responsible for bringing Christianity to much of Scotland and England. It was a place of great learning and a center of Christian mission. Our target audience is adults across Northern California - particularly the urban centers of Sacramento and the Bay Area. People who will be interested in us will be serious Christians, those longing for spiritual renewal, those hungry for mystery, sacraments, tradition, depth, etc.

simple, clean, elegant
We are looking for a clean, simple, elegant logo. We want it to work for our website, for our signage, and for letterhead, etc. It should work in mono-chrome (even if color is used). It should convey this paradoxical combination of ancient (traditional) + contemporary (fresh). Please steer clear of overly cliche religious imagery. The scenery around where we will build the lodging for the retreat center is full of beautiful oak trees, pine trees, and many kinds of other trees.
