Task 1 : Design and create a logo for the school that you are attending

Task : Create a new logo for the school that you are attending

First, think about the current logo. What does the logo say about your school. What is good and what is not so good about the school’s logo.

You can use a variety of online tools to create a new one.

Task 2 Market a new product

Task in pairs or a group (maximum 4)

Consider designating roles for each member, e.g. project manager, graphics designer, quality controller, timekeeper, etc

Task : Create a new product brand. Use presentation software to show how you would market it?

Choose a new product never been seen before, from either:

  1. A brand new, very powerful smart phone
  2. A luxury, extra special box of chocolates
  3. Wearable technology to give the user medical statistics when they are exercising

  • You have to decide on the product
  • How you will promote the product?
  • What price you will sell it for, how you will promote it?
  • Where will you promote the product you have chosen?

Think about

  • What is your new product?  
  • Who will you sell it to? (target audience)
  • What is your price? (why this price?)
  • How will you promote your new product?
  • Where will you sell your new product?

How to tackle the task

How you present your brand is up to you. Think; what would be the best tool?

You could make presentation slides (PowerPoint or Google Slides).

Here is my example for my brand, DigitalXFuture
