How can I make this logo I created fit into a square? Aesthetically, I just can't get it to look right. I had originally designed it to be used as a banner, but now the organization wants to use it as their Facebook profile picture. Any ideas? WWLW Logo

Edit: This is what I have tried, if anyone has any feedback that would be appreciated. No, I am not trying to get "free work" as someone had mentioned, I will do everything myself... I'm just having issues getting things to look good. Here are two that I liked. I like the faded coloring of the first one because it doesn't hurt the eyes (a hard task with these colors) and the second is just very bland so I don't know how to feel about it at all.

  • Why you cant get it to look right? How you convert a logo to square? Ideas about what? – Rosenthal Sep 12 '14 at 1:22
  • I want to move things around so it would fill up an entire square, but all my ideas looked bad. – Emily Y Sep 12 '14 at 2:14
  • What about a polka pattern with the colors of the rainbow as the background, that would fill a square. It would be colorful as the community itself. – Rosenthal Sep 12 '14 at 2:16

    This appears to be "idea gathering" (off-topic) and not a "critique" to me. – Scott Sep 12 '14 at 19:08

Maybe try using JUST the iconography as a more emblematic approach for the profile photo?

You're not asking a technical question, you're asking a creative one. There's a thousand options here. This is where you, as the designer, have a chance to show what you can make from a less-than-ideal situation. Good way to cut teeth!

Open up several .Ai artboards and rearrange away until you find something that meets the need!
