Graphic Design logo/poster

KEEP BEAUTIFUL


this project involved choosing a nonprofit to redesign the logo and create an advertisement for the organization. I chose the non-profit Keep Texas Beautiful. the poster design (right page) I wanted to emphasize Texas fully by starting off the official state song and photographing our state flower. 18”x24.” for the logo (left page) I wanted to visually interpret the organization’s main focus of clean Texas highways, land preservation, and recycling programs. The green colors were to emphasize the idea of “going green” and leaf and star design to mesh Texas with nature in a subtle and simple way. The leaf also symbollically represents a “clean” pathway and countryside. Also included are process work for the logos.

this project involved creating a logo and business set for a nonprofit organization benefitting an endangered species. I chose the myotis cave bat, and used the name MR. BAT to be an acronym for myotis rescue, bat alliance team. I also created a bat icon that looked friendly and approachable since many people are afraid of bats. Layout not at full scale
