PROGRESSION REPORT ONE – LOGO AND MASCOT (FIRST DRAFT)
ALL OF THE FOLLOWING DESIGN ARE CREATED BY ADOBE FLASH AND ADOBE PHOTOSHOP SOFTWARE.
The logo of the group :
This is the first draft of my logo design for my assignment. First, I found a shape of shield for my overall background logo. The shield symbolize the protection of the nature. Then I turn the surface of the shield into green color to represents the nature and environment, so the green shield means the shield of the nature. After that, I added a sword on the front center of the shield to obtain the clear understanding to the audience that we are fighting to protect the environment. I also added a small red ribbon banner on the below part of the logo and inserted a text : “Reduce Reuse Recycle”. This show us that we always remember the 3R’s in our mind and heart whenever we are. Lastly, I wrote two big size and white colored characters on the shield: ‘G’ and ‘W’. This is a short form of our group name, The Green Warriors. However, due to some special conditions, we changed our group name to The Green Knights. I will made the changes later on.
The mascot of the group :
The body of the mascot. ( Sketched by drawing pad )
The tree warrior’s recycle shield. ( Converted as a symbol for the action of the tree warriors. )
The tree warrior’s sword. ( Converted as a symbol for the action of the tree warriors. )
Created action and movement for the mascot.
This also the first draft of my mascot design. Our mascot for our assignment is basically a tree warrior that represents our group as a hero to protect the environment. First I drawn the tree body and confirm it size by modifying it continuously. Then I added the leafs on the top of the tree warrior as its hair. I colored the whole body in brighter color. After that I drawn its face with two white colored but black stroked circles as its eye, a short line as its mouth and then two pink shape of oval as its cheeks. I also gave the tree warriors two equipment to “protect the nature”: The sword and “The Recycle Shield”. The shield is colored white blue and green represents the meaning of water and the green plants. Then the recycle sign on the shield has the ability to tell that the overall image tree warrior is protecting the environment.
The mascot design is a fully hand drawn design, but the logo is only bit of it parts.
