These are design assignments from fall 2012.
One of our last assignments, but the one I want to show first was a logo design for ourselves. I had been thinking about something I could put on all of my sculpture that didn’t involve me scribbling out my name or initials.
I chose to symbolize my last name to also incorporate the direction of my studies, which is metal sculpture. The anvil represents the metalsmith I hope to become and I used roman numerals to spell our “gold” – together: Goldsmith
An exercise we did early on was to create an animal logo. I had just finished an elephant sculpture and ran with that idea for a fictional company called “Sleeping Elephant Bedding”
Here are a couple of designs from a contrast assignment.
After reflecting the coursework, I am going to make sure to emphasize the study of color as I progress forward in my degree.
