Creating a Logo for Your Website

For students of kindergarten to graduate grade.

Objective: students will be able to create an effective website logo.

Students will complete these steps.

1. come up with an idea for an internet business
2. sketch out ideas for the website
3. make a list of other types of businesses that are related in some way (even loosely)
3. search for those websites
4. critique the logos on those sites
5. create and present a new logo based on the critiqued logos
6. explain how they used the logos from the other websites; what did they like/dislike

This lesson is designed for a college-level internet commerce class, but it would be great for students of almost any age.  Students should discuss what level of "borrowing" is ok before it becomes plagiarism.
