Combine colour, symbols and text to form a unique identity for the brand, with an emphasis on a uniquely Australian, sustainable design. Based on your research, you will also choose an environmental context for the client’s product. You will generate a document that visualises the design and research process involved in creating the logo. The document should include photographs or mock-ups of the application of the identity, in tangible items (ie. on packaging, t-shirt design, carry bag, etc.) in relation to the environmental context that you have selected, as well as a representation of the identity for digital environments. A style guide or style-manual is a set of standards for the writing and design of documents, either for general use or for a specific publication, organisation or field. The implementation of a style-guide provides uniformity in the style and formatting of a document. Continuing the logo and branding design exercise, you will create a style-guide or style manual, which will explain the logo application and usage of your logo, for the benefit of both client and third parties. The document will include extensive information on colour combinations, scaling and placement. An understanding of correct usages of the logo in various applications and the standard use of fonts and typography relating to the application, should be demonstrated. The style of graphics, photography and illustrations should also be included in the style guide. Requirements: Logo specifications: - The logo should be represented in the document in – Black and White, Reverse, Pantone colours and CMYK colours. - The logo should be considered for screen application and shown on a sample home- page for the client. - The logo should be shown on at least one tangible application. such as stationery, vehicle and/or uniform design. - The logo must be a vector graphic, created in Illustrator. Style Guide specifications: - Explain your logo concept (i.e. an overview of how it suits the clients’ mission and objective) - Specify all colours used in the logo (Pantone, CMYK and Web Values) - Show examples of the logo in black & white and reverse - Show examples of how the logo might be improperly used (i.e. skewed, improper type) - Specify logo scale (the smallest size it can be scaled, without losing clarity) - Specify the amount of empty space that should always be left around the logo - Give an example of how the logo might be placed on a various applications (ie. Delivery-van, T-shirt design, letterhead and the company business card). - Specify typefaces to be used on logo-type and preferred alternatives, should the font be unavailable and application on all company correspondence and application, should be included. - Documents to be presented as an A4 (portrait or landscape) - The style-guide should be prepared in InDesign, with master-pages, grid systems, page numbers and paragraph styles. Photographs can be stock photos or third party materials (with credits). You must package InDesign file. - (Details of content of Style Guide will be briefed at a tutorial and on Moodle) Submit via Canvas: Submit Illustrator file of logo design. Submit the packaged InDesign file of Style Guide. A PDF document of Style Guide. Sketchbook reveiw (60% )
