Year 6 students are beginning a unit about logo design. They are exploring the design cycle and inquiring into how logos are used to communicate.
Students began by creating Google Doodles, which are versions of the google logo that change for special events. Soon, they will be crafting an email to send to Google to submit their google doodles.
My dad is is renting out our cabin on Airbnb. He is looking to design a logo for the cabin that can be used on t-shirts, hats, on the Airbnb advert, and in the cabin. Y6.2 students Skyped with him to ask questions about what he wants for his logo. Students spent two days sketching. They will revisit the project when he visits in April.
Currently, students have been assigned creative groups and a client (who works at LIS) that needs a logo to be designed for a specific purpose. Last class, they began investigating by interviewing their clients about what they want for their logo. Students are now planning and will revisit their client to evaluate their logo next week. The following week, they will move create and publishing their logo for their client.
As the summative task for this unit, students will be creating a logo for exhibition.
