For design, we had to design and make a logo. I started learning the basics for designing a logo, how it should be memorable, simple, versatile, timeless, and appropriate. Also, I learned that a design should be using C.A.R.P., which stands for contrast, alignment, repetition, and proximity. After that, I started thinking about how my logo would look like. I had many different ideas, and I wrote down what my logo should represent to keep my work simple and organized. I sketched a few of my ideas, and asked some of my friends for which ones should I use. I finally selected two of the logos and got comments from others in order to improve. I made my final sketch of my logo by hand and did reflections on what I did well and what I should improve on. (Criterion B) Then, I learned and practiced skills on using Adobe Illustrator, so that it would be easier for myself to make my improved logo on Illustrator later. I started making the logo, and got comments and reflected using the process journal. (Criterion C) After that, I made an iFolio post and got feedback from my classmates. (Criterion D)
For improving my logo, I would put more colors on the letters, and try to make the lines perfect and smoother. Also, I would try to outline the logo, to make it stand out and be more unique as said in the feedback from my friends. To do so, I would use layers to make sure that I won’t mess up with the logo. Also, I would use the paintbrush tool and the colors tool to make the lines smoother and with more colors.
