Have you ever needed cheering up in school? Have you ever arrived in school in a bad mood? This happens to all of us from time to time.

The logo/symbol below has been designed to encourage pupils to make each other smile. The logo/symbol is a little dated and needs to be modernised.

 

Study the existing symbol/logo (above). Do you consider it to be outdated or unsuitable? YES/NO

Explain you answer.

 
 
 
 
   

Produce two rough versions of a new suitable symbol/logo to encourage pupils to make each other smile. Add notes explaining each design especially how each one could be further improved.

 
   
SUGGESTIONS:
Keep your designs simple with the minimum of words / text.
Use no more than two/three colours and consider using bright colours as these are proven to gain the attention of young children.
 
 

Select your best design and produce a final colour rendered version. Use either felt pens, coloured pencils, ink pens, crayons or a combination of all.

Manufacture a composite card version of your design. Build up layers of coloured card and add text with ink pens / felt pens. Glue the layers of card using a suitable adhesive.

 

1. Cut the layers of coloured card and glue together using a gel type glue or a spray glue. Do not use a liquid glue or the card will ‘buckle’ and become misshapen.

2. Use ink pens and coloured pencils to add text / words.

Consider using ICT / computer software. For instance, print out the text directly on to coloured card and then cut out the shapes.
