1. Introduction to Build a Logo to Express Who You Are

Playback Speed:

Every person in the world is unique and has their own identity that makes them who they are. In this lesson, you will express some part of what makes “you” unique by designing a visual logo. A logo is a symbol that’s made up of text and images. Logos are often used to help customers identify companies, organizations, or products. You might see signs in your neighborhood or school that have a recognizable logo. As soon as you see it, you know what it is and what it stands for. But logos aren’t just for products or signs.

You can create your own personal logo that reflects your personal experiences and interests and tells a visual story that represents who “you” are.

Then, you can use your personal logo on… Your website, Social media, Your own schoolwork, And in an email signature.

If you ever start your own business or sell items online, you can even use your logo to help your customers recognize you. This lesson uses Google Docs and Google Drawings, but you could apply these skills and concepts in any document or drawing application or even on a piece of paper. As you create your logo, you will: List five words or phrases you would use to describe yourself, Choose one or more shapes for your logo, Add colors to your logo, And add text to your logo.
