Logo Project


MilwaukeeBrewersLogo.jpg

You will be designing a logo to represent a certain concept or idea. A logo is a simple design that is used to represent something. A company has a logo not only so that you can easily identify their product, but also so that you'll know something about their company at a glance. Even if there are no words, a good logo should communicate to its audience through color and design. A picture's worth a thousand words, right?

This example at first glance looks like a baseball glove. If you look more closely, there is the letter M and the letter B in the logo. This logo represents the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team whose colors are blue and gold.

If your classmates looked at your logo without the abstract, would they be able to see your symbolism?
