ART 3 Personal LOGO Design
A successful logo is usually very simple in design.
The logo is easy to understand, even at a distance.
One or two colors are normally used.
Any writing is presented in a simple way and is easy to use.
A logo gives identity to what it represents.

Criteria for your personal logo design:
1. Must incorporate an object or an image that connects to a major interest or aspect of your life: it identifies you and your “business”.
2. The final image may or may not incorporate letters to represent your business name.
3. The STYLE of the final image should reflect a bit of your personality.
4. The resulting image should make use of the positive & negative space, have a consistent style and should be simplified and graphic in nature.
5. Your logo must be able to be reproduced in black and work visually.
