Logo Design

  • Your first assignments for TGJ 3MI involve working with the basics of logo design.  You will apply the information learned from the class "Principle of Logo Design" lesson to complete two assignments.

 

ASSIGNMENT #1 - LOGO RESEARCH

Due Fri. Sept. 10th

Use an Internet search engine to look for at least 12 logo design samples. :

  • 4 Graphic Only (no text)
  • 4 Text Only (no shapes, lines, etc)
  • 4 Combination

Copy these samples into a document. You should fit four logos to a page. You are strongly recommended to use PUBLISHER as it is much easier to work with graphics and text.

 

For each logo, write a short explanation (3-4 sentences) explaining whether or not you think the logo is effective and WHY.  Your explanations should reflect an understanding of the various design elements presented in the "Principles of Logo Design" lesson.

 

ASSIGNMENT #2 - PERSONAL LOGO DESIGN

Roughs Due Wed. Sept. 15th, Final Due Fri. Sept. 17th

Create a well-designed logo that will be used as your "signature" on all projects throughout the course.

Begin by producing a series of thumbnails that follow design principles outlined earlier – logo must represent YOU:

  • 5 Graphic Only (no text)
  • 5 Text Only (no shapes, lines, etc)
  • 5 Combination

Choose one favourite thumbnail from each category and reproduce/rework in larger, more carefully drawn format (use drawing tools, etc).

 

 

From the final 3 "good" thumbnails, choose your top design and carefully reproduce it on the computer (choose the necessary software). Roughs must be checked before starting computer work.

  • Final logo MUST be black and white only and should formatted for multiple sizes/uses (from business card to billboard).
  • Print out final design to fit ½ of 8.5x11 sheet (black and white).
  • Provide a 1-2 paragraph explanation of your final design (elements used, how it represents you, why you chose this design).

 

NEED INSPIRATION OR HELP?

Here are some helpful sites to provide some design assistance and inspiration.  Remember...you can be inspired by others' designs, but you CAN'T plagiarize!
