Personal Logo Design

Analyze the role of color in differentiating logo design and corporate identities
Because people have an immediate, emotional response to any given color, color is one of the most important elements to consider in logo design. A company who wants to present a fresh, positive, upbeat personality would most likely never settle for an all gray and brown color scheme for their logo. Conversely, a company who wants to present a stable, professional, responsible, personality would most likely never embrace a color scheme featuring bubble gum pinks, neon yellows, and acid greens. Personality is reinforced or undermined by color thus it is vital when designing to consider not only color relationships within a logo but larger cultural color representations.

Project Overview
Last week you worked on the preliminary sketches and black and white computer versions of your personal logo design project. Coming into this week you should have three refined computer versions of your redesigned logo executed in black and white. After receiving feedback, this week you will finalize the logo direction you feel is most appropriate and create a logo sheet showcasing its appearance in a variety of sizes and situations.

Week 4 Project
After receiving feedback on your Week 3 submission, refine the logo direction that you feel is most appropriate. Consider how you can best maintain message consistency within a typeface, color, and overall logo composition. In addition, create and implement a color scheme for your logo that uses at least two colors (in addition to black and white).
