It was great to see the ideas that you’ve come up with for the Future Friends logo last week. Really good work. 

Here’s a reminder of some things to think about while perfecting your logo designs:

1) Is it bold? Does it stand out? Think of the Mcdonalds arches, Nike, Mickey Mouse: would you be able to recognise your logo from across the street? Best way to check this is to reduce it to about 3cm square on a photocopier.Or, if you can scan it, try reducing it in size in a graphics package and then print it out … or you could just draw it really small and see how it looks then.

2) Has it got a personality/sense of fun?

3) How does the lettering relate to any figure or icon or animal drawing that you have created for the logo (e.g. does it have the same quality of line)?

4) Will it work in two colours?

5) The logo will be will be used on a web site, on a t-shirt, as a sign for the  exhibition so … will it work in all of these applications?

Have fun and see how many different ideas you can up with.

All of your logo designs will feature on the sketchbook pages of the future friends web site. The best logo from each group will also be adapted into a T-shirt design.

The best logo from these will then feature on the web site and as signage for the exhibition!
