Day Three

1. Read the six common mistakes of logo design: https://www.sitepoint.com/6-common-mistakes-logo-design/

2. With your team, brainstorm different logo designs by drawing them on plain drawing paper. Each team should draw at least 3 different logo design ideas (or one per person on the team) on the drawing paper. Show these to Mrs. Quam when you are done!

Keep in mind, you want your logo to be relatively simple, but not boring. If it's too busy, it will overwhelm the client's customers. If it's too boring, it will make the customers want to buy somewhere else.
