The Beginnings of the Logo

So I’ve managed to find something that appeals to my interest and will get me involved with a food issue I care about. Now it’s time to meet with the creator of the food pantry, Terrence Walker, and ask to get involved with my art. For anyone who is reading this blog to learn how to make logos, this is the first part of creating a logo. Before you even begin your work, first you have to find it, and to do that, you have to be CONFIDENT! Sell yourself, be polite, and speak up!

Thankfully, the meeting went well in my case. Now that I know I can get involved, there are important questions that I need answered. The first step in creating an organization, for my job, is to create the logo. But where to start?  Even though I’m working together with my fellow students and faculty on this food pantry, I consider them to be my clients, so I’ve asked each of them questions such as:

  • What’s important to you about this pantry? How do you feel about it?
  • What do you want to say to the rest of the community?
  • Is there anything you know you want to be present in the logo? Colors?

It’s important to do your research and pay attention to what your client wants. For this logo, everyone expressed a desire for a theme of community and an association with the school to come through, while still showing what the organization is about.
