It’s not easy to design a logo. You have to simplify your idea to a most efficient form. You have to think about the values and the message behind each line, shape and colour. You also have to be creative and stand out with your idea from the myriad logos out there.
With a group of 8th and 9th graders we took the challenge. Students had a limited time to design the logo for the R.E.S.P.E.C.T. project. First we discussed briefly about the basic idea and the values behind the project and then we started. After one hour of hard work and creativity we had 30 marvellous proposals. Some students even made two.
Our prestigious jury had a difficult task to choose the best ones. Many good proposals had to be left out. The jury gave much value to the idea, clarity and the visual layout and finally picked out six logos for the final poll.
Then we arranged a massive poll for all the students in the upper comprehensive school. We got 103 votes during one break and the competition was even. This time the winner was Emma Määttä (9DK) with 34 votes. Her proposal was visually interesting, the idea clear and skillfully drawn. Thank you for all the designers and voters. You’re great!
