One of the main challenges of any design project is understanding the client’s expectations and articulating the project vision. My clients for the “Child Wellbeing and Welfare Committee” logo project were a team of psychologists. After my initial meeting with them, it was evident to me that each of them had a different idea of what the logo should represent. Hence, to make sure everyone gets heard, I came up with the idea to ask each committee member to write down a few words describing the meaning of the committee to them. Then, I generated the word cloud to visually represent their visions.
With an idea of the client's idea, I picked the two popular and yet graphic words: “child” and “leaf”. After a few etude designs, my final design for the logo emerged. I’ve also used the logo to design their customized letterheads and the brand book.
After getting feedback from the clients, the second alternative was selected to continue. The reason was that the first concept couldn't be related to the teenage age group, which was the committee's aim to extend their team in future.
Logo color was one of the essential parts of the design, which requires more psychological research. After talking to the committee, I understood that the committee's main purpose was for children to feel secure. Hence, I needed to research the best color that suited the main purpose. So I found out the best color that helps children, specifically endangered ones, to feel secure is "blue, " which has a soothing effect. I picked green as the secondary color to be perceived as the children’s growth and hope for the future.
Book Layout Design
Since the book was prepared for children to learn and train with their team and peers, I tried to make it appealing for them to follow, and the puzzle was the ideal concept to present it. So the whole layout and all details were designed with puzzle features. Also, the sharp colors had chosen to make it attractive for children to follow the instructions. Here are some pages as an example of an 80-page book. Each page has its layout. I should mention that the book is published in Farsi.
