For this project I decided to create a chicken leg and insert a quote. My logo includes a chicken leg saying “ Paleo: It’s a no grainer.” I thought this quote was perfect for my logo because It’s a fun quote that goes along very well with my topic. It’s not very serious, and it shows character.
This project idea relates to my course topic because it involves the Paleo diet, and gives an example of what Paleo is.
In order to create this logo, I had to draw it out using the pen. Pictures were not allowed, honestly this worried me a little because I am the worst at drawing, and I do not believe that I have a single creative bone in my body. Drawing this was a struggle, but I did my best. I used the pen tool to draw everything out, and then I filled the shapes with color. I also managed to add the text which was pretty simple.
I was inspired to create this logo by the other chicken logos that I had seen online.
Color was significant to my logo. Coloring the chicken leg brown made it more realistic. It’s also significant how the quote goes along with the food that I chose to include in this logo. It made sense to include the chicken leg because it is a symbol for the Paleo diet.
For this project I used the eraser tool, the pen tool, the text tool, the color fill tool, I changed the font, I changed the text size, I used the curvature tool, and a couple other tools for some last minute touches. For example at the end I fit my circular logo to fit the page completely.
The problems I encountered with this project were minor, but that is because I kept my first draft simple. My main issue is coming up with a creative idea. To solve this issue, I plan to dedicate a lot of time to my final draft. I’m positive that there is so much more that I can do with this idea. This idea is a very solid start I just need to work on expanding it, and adding more creative details.
