Health Update: Amelia and Rory – Good as New. Luke – Has dodged the virus completely. Claire and Michaela – On the mend, but still a bit droopy. Life is starting to return to normal. I still owe a lot of people an email, and the house looks like a bomb has hit it though.
Here is a look at the logos that I made for the kinder to consider, but firstly a look at the current logo…..
It took me a year or two to diplomatically find out that this was designed by someone long gone from the Preschool. I really hate it. A teacher from long ago drew the stick-figures, and the play equipment they are on, not to mention the lovely hand drawn wording. The burgundy is such a lovely, youthful touch don’t you think?
I presented all the logos in Black and White, because the place that they are most visible, is on the kid’s T-shirts and Windcheaters. On these, they are printed in one colour to keep costs down for families. So here is the first one of mine – a very straight logo. The Preschool has a very large tree in the playground, and the kids all like to collect the leaves, which look like this…
The next two are based on children’s drawings, which is what most Preschools tend to do. I used drawings that I had from when the older two were at Preschool. They needed a little bit of modification – they have to be legible when they are very small on letterhead, as well as large, on the Preschool building.
I call this the Jumping Man Logo, and the one below is known as the Spotty Creature Logo.
Finally I presented a logo that represented growing, singing and playing. I presented this one both in B&W as well as colour, to give the committee an idea of how I might use colour, once they chose one of the options. Here is the Birdie logo, in colour, but not necessarily the colour it would end up as.
So I will find out in a month which one they like best. I am not a graphic designer, I sure a professional could do better, but I did it for free, and I had fun, so hopefully it is a win-win situation. Anything has to be better than what the preschool currently has! Which one do you like?
