ObjectiveTo show kids and teens how to create a logo.
Description McDonald's Logo

A logo is a recognizable image, font or arrangement of shapes that we use to represent a business. Examples of logos are the golden arches for McDonald's or the apple with a bite out of it for Apple Inc. 


1. Think of the business that you will be creating your logo for. Answer the following for yourself:

  • What are you selling or what service will you be providing?
  • What are the images that come to mind when you think abut your business?
  • Do you have a name for your company? Is there an image you associate with that name?
  • Do you want to have an image or would you just like to create a text logo?


2. Do a Google search for your competitor's logos. Think about what you like about those logos and what you don't like.

3. Think about the colors you will use for your logo. Choose one or two colors that you really like. You may want to go to a site like Kuler, these sites give you a variety of different color schemes to choose from. Choose one or two colors that you really like and write them down. What do those colors say to your customers? Do they reflect your company?

4. Draw and color several different ideas for your logo.If you don't draw then you can always try a free logo generator.

5. Show your ideas to your friends and family and see which one they like best and why.

6. Choose the logo that you like best and start using in on your printed and online material for your business.
