notes for kat:
he explained grading. we either got a 0, 1, or 2 on each of our assignments.
difference between logo for print and screen:
why a logo?
establish a brand/increase profile of brand
3.identify and understand target customers
4.define company's key attributes (branding)
5.allow twice as much time to produce
6.decide on appropriate colors (what will transfer well from print to web)
...yes he just mentioned websafe colors *gag*
7.collect shitloads of information to help establish an idenity
9. design on paper first
(somewhere in here i missed a step :\ there are supposed to be 10)
we looked at some desktop publishing site on about.com... it was full of hideous logos.
for the lab we made logos and then presented them in front of the class. :\ damn you for missing today.
logos to make:
1. logo for achille castiglioni, for the internet, italian designer
2. logo for web documentary georges melies, french cinematographer.
3. logo for finess and health. an onlin magazine about fitness and health.
