Inspired by a letter from The President and members of Ravensworth WI in the Darlington & Stockton Times, that a new logo costing over £88,000 has just been commissioned, I came up with this quick sketch, that with a little more work could be used as a logo or a badge for the Women’s Institute,
I could not see much wrong with the old WI logo which represents the Tree of Life. After all it is traditional, easily recognisable and was probably designed and made by a member of WI. I am sure if WI branches had been polled, any number of designs would have been forthcoming.
If I could knock this up in half an hour, what could I have done with a budget of 88 Grand. Makes you think, Doesn’t it.
I envisage this as a badge in gilt and enamels. Obviously the WI will not wish to use it, so with a little more work we could turn it into W for Wendy, or turn it upside down and use it as M for Mary, or, bearing in mind that tomorrow is Mothering Sunday, M for Mother.
Keep watching this space.
