"Graphic Design: Logo Creation for the 'Ault Area Historical Museum'"
THE PROJECT: The Board of Directors for the new "Ault Area Historical Museum" have commissioned our Graphic Design class to design the logo for the museum. They would like to be presented with four different logo designs. From these four, a final winner will be selected.
THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF LOGO DESIGN: Most good logos follow the following six principles in their design and layout:
A slideshow that demonstrates these principles can be found here. Please review this before considering any logo ideas!
Here are the SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS regarding the creation of the logo:
CREATION and SUBMISSION OF THE LOGO: Graphic Design students will have until Thanksgiving Break to submit THREE pencilled color sketches of their logo design ideas to Mr. B. Mr. B. will review all submissions and will select FOUR students to create final logos in Photoshop/Illustrator using both color and black and white. These four students will create a complete portfolio and presentation of their logo and will be presenting their logo to the Museum Board of Directors in the Spring. As the completion of these two steps of logo design will likely take time, students may be exempted from class assignments during the class periods in which they are working on their presentations.
GRADING: Due to the nature of this project and the intrinsic value that this learning process will present to students, there will be no grading for credit in Graphic Design class. The person who submits the WINNING Museum Logo Design will be EXEMPTED from taking the Final Examination in the Spring!
