February 2023 -
On 23rd January, I joined 5 local businesses & charities at Larbert High School as part of DYW Week.
We spent the day with S3 pupils hosting short Q&A sessions, where we chatted with them about our own career paths and what we loved and found hard within our jobs.
As well as the Q&A sessions, we had the opportunity to set each group of pupils an activity linked to our own industry.
For my creative challenge, I asked each of them to turn their name into their own personal logo. The objective of this short exercise was to familiarise them with type as a stand-alone design element as well as how it can be used as visual communication.
I asked them to create a mind map all about themselves, their personality, interests & passions to help them explore themselves a little deeper and hopefully bring some new ideas to the forefront of their thoughts. They were then asked to pick an element that they would like to adapt.
They considered form, colour, style, and even visuals that to them, personalised their design and reflected their personality best.
The school were kind enough to share some of the artwork that the pupils submitted as part of the day's activities and I am delighted to be able to share some of them with you here.
