To start I identified the course I would begin making a logo for- Creative Media Production.
I then used Notes Plus on my ipad to jot down some thoughts and words. I chose this app as I use it most days make notes during meetings-it syncs with my dropbox/gdocs and allows me to type and handwrite. This time wanted to try and add some visuals to map initial thoughts.
In Art/Graphics we often get students to produce initial and abstract ideas using pictograms/glyphs either with the shapes themselves (we had a few sets cut with a laser cutter) or digitally in a vector editing program so I decided to follow this process digitally. I used a range of simple shapes and windings in Adobe Illustrator.
|First Symbols recreating images from initial ideas|
I then started trying to make a symbol for each word "Creative Media Production" and put them together as groups of 3.
My favourite so far is the bottom design as I feel it has both aspects of the subject we offer...Interactive Media and Film/TV.
I followed this process with the 2nd subject - photography.
So far this is what I have come up with.
I plan to develop both of these designs further looking a how these symbols could communicate their intentions with more clarity...
To start this development I got my Btec Graphic design students to give me some feedback on my initial ideas. They were very honest and I have alot of development work to do especially on my Creative Media Production Symbol.
