OUR CURRENT ILLUSTRATION PROJECTS:

  • GRAPHIC DESIGN PROCESS PROJECT #3: The "Inspire Success Daily" Logo project. As you may know, recently, HHS adopted a school slogan- "Inspire Success Daily." So far, this slogan has been seen about the school in a few locations, but always poorly represented in a boring font or poor layout. For this project, please create a "Logotype Slogan" for HHS that could be used on promotional material, etc. Colors- Black, white, green, yellow. Shape- slogan should fit into a square form. Presentation: The slogan design should look sleek and professional, using clever or interesting typography.
