AREAS of INTERACTION •

This project links to two of the Areas of Interaction, which are “human ingenuity” and “community and service”. This project relates to HUMAN INGENUITY because human ingenuity is all about ideas and creations and in this project in this project I will be creating and designing a logo that will be used for SWA’s IB learner profile/areas of interaction/design cycle. I will also be using my understanding about the design cycle to complete this project. By using the design cycle, I will be thinking different possible ideas and ways to investigate, design, plan, create and evaluate the project. Therefore human ingenuity relates most to this project.

COMMUNITY AND SERVICE is another area of interaction is relates to the project because we are helping and doing service for the school which is the community, therefore community and service is another area of interaction that relates the the project

DesignBrief My client, SWA needs new logos for the Areas of Interaction, IB Learner Profile, and Design Cycle.They will choose the best ones and it will become the official designs that SWA uses for the whole year. The design should be attractive and appropriate of both the people and the school. Through out the time given to complete this project, I will explore various ways and learn how to use different softwares so that I could help create a logo for SWA. I will complete this project by following the 5 stages from the design cycle which are, investigate, design, plan, create and evaluate. First, I will hold an interview that would give me an understanding of what the school wants. I will also investigate different case studies of what type of logos that are being made. I will design 6 different possible designs and evaluate on each one of them by meeting them with the different design specifications such as size, time and safety. After I am done designing, I will also plan out a time table that would allow me to work more efficiently and allow me to complete in time. I will also plan out what tools and materials I will need. And lastly, I will start creating the advertisement by following my plan.

CLIENTINTERVIEW 1. What type of logo do you want it to be? (Word / letter Mark, Character, Pictorial/ combination, emblem...etc) I think that the logo should be a pictorial or a combination logo because, I is nicer to have both image and word in the logo. 2. How do you want the combination logo to be structured? I think that the combination logo should have the emblem logo on top (the picture) and the word on the bottom of the logo. 3. Do you want the logo to be: - simple or colorful? simple - playful or serious? between playful and serious - personable or professional? professional - feminine or masculine? between both of them 4. What colors do you want it to include? I think that the combination logo should have any colors but it cannot be too colorful or playful or serious. 5. Who are your target audience? The target audiences are the students, the staffs and the parents that is why the logo has to be between serious and playful so therefore it will look appealing to both adults and students Sunday, November 13, 2011


INTERVIEWSUMMARY From the interview I did with a student, I found out that the logo should be a pictorial logo that is simple, not too playful, professional and not too colorful. It should be suitable for both students and adults
