Design Brief

My Design client is Ms. Guylaine and Ms. Deborah,for my design door logo I would create something simple but still shows the essence of Creativity and fun that shows what the design space is all about (Creativity, open minded, others) with pops of color that will be eye catching to the people walking by. I am incorporating this into my design because, so when people walk into the room they would know that to expect and what to do, to show them that coming into the Design room, they should be open minded, colorful and fun, and that they should enjoy the space. This connects to my design research because I incorporate what Ms.Guylaine and Ms.Deborah want on their Design space door or wall, Ms.Guylaine requested that the design logo should be simple but not boring with pops of colors, with something that make people who walk into the room realize that this is an open place that is creative, where as Ms. Debeorah requested that there should be limited colors, with modernness. So I combine all of this Idea and integrate them, In finality I would do something simple with pops of color but the color would still be limited which means that there would not be to many color but still enough to be fun and show the essence of what Design class is all about with modernness. I am going to make this type of theme because It goes well with what design class is about, the modernness the fun and creativity.

Design #1 is also eye catching with a slogan that can motivate students who is coming into the design space/studio. Not only that it meets most of my design specification accept from one which is ' Include some of Nord Anglia colors in the design', I will change this by changing some colors to the Nord Anglia color so that It will meet all of my design specification.
