To design my capstone logo I chose Canva because I was already comfortable with the layout of the site. What I found was it is really difficult to create a logo when you are trying to emulate a sketch that you have done. What Canva was useful in doing was offering ideas from the preloaded templates and elements while designing something that was visually pleasing and conveyed what the focus of your site is.
Since my capstone relied heavily on the use of hyperdocs, I wanted to highlight one of the key features of this tool, which is being able to link resources to your document. For this I chose the universal image of a link (chainlink). Since students are using this link to access other documents or tools, an arrow seemed like an appropriate image to accompany the link. While the logo is clean and visually pleasing, I am wondering if this image will convey what my site is about, alternative education and independence through learning. Assuming there will be several iterations during the logo design process before a final version is selected, I am excited to get peer feedback on what others think because my bias is too heavy to gauge the true usefulness of the logo.
