Woo hoo! Finally an A on my logos and I think I learned something!
- Just MAKE the time to use Lynda.com as a refresher on software.
- If I like the topic, I will throw everything I have at it . My biggest hinderance in many arenas is when I don’t see the point of something I spend energy asking “why” and balking.
- I am no longer afraid of logos.
We had to choose a museum and create 6 wayfinder logos for it. I chose my beloved Eiteljorg, bought a membership, and spent a lot of time on location (doing research…uh huh!) I also took several of my buddies along at different points and introduced them to the museum (with plans to take more of them this summer!) Needless to say I was in my own version of artist’s heaven! This re-awakened that passion in my heart for painting and all things Native American.
What do you think? Did I get it? I know I still have a ways to go since I am only in the beginning stages of creating logos. I also thought these were very simple, but I wanted that. Compared to my talented fellow-students I felt they were very basic, but Beth encouraged me with a good grade, by telling me these were my best yet, and saying “simple is good”.
If I were working with a client, I would take these to them and there would be several rounds of changes before the final product hit the printers. So here is my first draft for wayfinders representing areas of interest in the museum:
- Jewelry / Pottery / Interactive (they have a t-pee kids can get their hands on in this section)
- Southwest Paintings /Performance arts /A generic logo for changing galleries
