“Feed Our Future”

logotype: a graphic representation of or symbol of a company name or trademark and is often uniquely designed for quick recognition.

The Event is: 18 May 2011, 7pm

A charity fundraiser. Proceeds go to the local food bank.

By our Art Department. We’ll auction student-created ceramic vessels and give away soup to eat from your new bowl!

The Logo contest is:

Design a logo to be featured on advertisements for this event!

A simple figure.

1 to 3 colors.

Due this Friday (29 April).


What makes a good logo?

Simple and memorable. Try this exercise in pop culture:

What is the logo for the sports company Nike?

What is the logo for the car company BMW?

What color does Coca-Cola use for it’s logo?

A good logo intelligently uses the following elements:

Figure: the form, shape or outline of something in a composition. Usually a human, but sometimes an animal or an object.

pattern: lines, colors or shapes repeated.

balance: when composition appears unified; creates a sense of stability

symmetry: having both sides exactly the same

Handle- the part we use to hold the vessel
