ProjectPersonal Logo 

This is the core of your own identity package, your own form of personal branding. You will include this 'mark' in subsequent class output. Continue to refine your logo through group and self critique. This is huge. The forerunner of greater things to come. Something about it can always remain the same. Then you can build variations on a theme.


Homework:

1. Read the article, Logos=God, by Mark Fox. [Posted under Articles> Logos at voiceonapage.com.]

2. Be aware there will be a quiz on this and last week's reading (3 articles).
