I chose this poster because in my town the D.A.R.E organization was very popular. Dare posters were always hung up in my school and they had a specific logo to go along with their campaign. They had a phrase that said ” just say no” as well as a lion which represented the D.A.R.E mascot. I chose this poster because I thought it was a good simple poster, which got it’s message across fast and it was able to incorporate their logo and emphasize it’s importance. When someone looks at this poster, even if they have never heard of D.A.R.E before, they understand what the purpose of the poster is with a quick glance.

I found these cards on a website with different business cards. I saw this card and thought it was different and unique. Even though it is in another language you are able to tell who it is for. It has a plus and minus sign on one side and another electrician image on the other side. I think this business card is good because you are able to tell who it is for and what the company is just by looking at it. Even though the words aren’t in English you can tell it is an electrician company based on the images

The logo I chose was the famous girls scouts of america logo. The logo was created by Saul Bass in 1978. This logo has become extremely popular and when you see it, you know it is associated with the girl scouts. I like this logo because it uses great positive and negative space with making the faces. It is creative because you can see three faces due to the way the positive and negative spaces compliment each other. I also noticed that the type for girl scouts under the image goes extremely well with the picture.

I chose the Poland Spring logo for my identity system. Poland Spring has become one of the most popular water bottle companies in the United States. Everyone knows what you are talking about when you say there name. Poland Spring has been around since 1976. Not only has Poland Spring been a great hit but Nestle water as well as perrier are part of Nestle Waters North America Inc. , wihich poland spring is part of as well. Each of these water bottles have a destinct logo that everyone remembers. The Neste company did a terrific job of creating a logo that everyone will remember.  I feel that when I look at the poland spring bottle it makes me thirsty and it makes me want to drink it. It is also simple and easy to remember and has a refreshing feel to it.Image
