12:45 Tuesday / Wednesday Afternoon Final Exam Design Component:  Your Brand.

Design Homework 32 was a 10 pack of logos.

Design Homework 33 was the final 2 pack.  Your designer colleagues voted on which they liked the best.

Tuesday / Wednesday afternoon this week you are going to be designing the final digital logo branding of YOU, to be used in your Portfolio.

First – this will be graded on Thursday, June 1st at 11:00 AM.  Remember that the classroom will not be open Thursday morning until 9:15ish.  What you present to the class will be your grade.

Start a new document 8.5″ x 11″ at a resolution of 300 in Photoshop or Illustrator.

Pick your own personal branding that you wish to create for your Portfolio.  Just as in the image above, we are going to do a number of different versions of your logo that you settle on.

The Deliverables

All files go into Week 36 in a folder called “portfolioLogos”.

You will create a single design and then give us some variations on the theme, just as the images above demonstrate.

“The Standard” – centered – “standard.jpg”.

“Primary” – adjust your logo to use Primary Colors (and black/white) only – centered – “primary.jpg”.

“Secondary” – adjust your logo to use Secondary Colors (and black/white) only – centered – “secondary.jpg”.

“Thirds” – take one of the three versions above and setup with Rule of thirds composition – “thids.jpg”.

“Print” – black and white (white being the background) only version for your print resume – “print.jpg”.

These 5 images must be complete and ready to present Thursday immediately after our break.
