companies that provide products or services.
Example: If my name is John Doe, my four companies could be –
1) John tree climbing services

From your four logo design solutions, one should use type as image, one should use image as type, one should use ligatures and one should demonstrate the use of counterforms. The use of color is optional for this project.
Invent four companies that use all or part of your name. Sketch out possible design solutions; at least 25 thumbnails for each. Seek the
approval of your professor before you take your strongest concepts to the computer. You can use any vector based software you are comfortable with to render your final design solutions.
