9:45 Two Roads Academy Logo
Today we will be brainstorming and creating logo ideas for a local teacher looking to spread their ideas and practices around Vermont. The group is called Two Roads Academy. The inspiration for their name came from a poem by the great Robert Frost.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves, no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Their mission statement:
“To provide a developmentally appropriate, therapeutic, and enriching learning environment for students when the public school system is unable to meet their needs.
To discover and make the best use of each student’s strengths and passions in designing and guiding their personalized learning plans.
To teach and develop community-centered skills necessary for each student to thrive in today’s society.
To facilitate and design for re-integration to the sending school.”
“All Students can achieve their full potential and become successful and valuable members of society. When a student’s needs cannot be met by the environment in the public school, a short time in a more structured therapeutic, evidence-based learning environment can close the gaps, help them establish skills they need, and bring them to a place that allows for reintegration in their school community. “

I know this is all a lot of information. But when working with a client, you ask them to give you as much information you can possibly get out of them to make sure everyone is on the same page and stays focused on the same goal. Please make sure to review this information as you are creating your logo.
- Earth Tone color palette
- Something that can me be “faded away in the background” (i’ll explain)
I must see a color palette and at least 5 low-quality sketches before you get to your computer. I am ok with you looking for inspiration but I should not see photoshop or illustrator open until I see those two things.
- 5 low-quality sketches
- color palette
- square sized document (equal w / h)
