Logo research task.

This task was to research 6 logos of my choice that inspire me and that give me ideas for when i create my own logo. I chose the Fanta, Amazon, Barbie, Zara, Dunkin’ Donuts and Mercedes logo. I have compiled my ideas and thoughts on each logo on the slides above, including the ideas what I will be using when I create my own branding such like the type faces. 

I have also included a bibliography consisting of the websites and links to the pages where I have found my images.

My Saturday mornings used to be spent perusing dusty racks of once-worn sweaters, eagerly searching for my Cool Item of the week. I’d come to school after the weekend, beaming with a sort of pride that’s difficult to explain to those who have never spent hours combing through miles of hangers and blue bins covered in chipped paint. “You like it?” I would say, whispering conspiratorially to anyone who dared to speak on my outfit choices. “It’s thrifted.”  

Ah, thrifting. If you told ten-year-old Michelle that her high school weekends would be spent at Goodwill, she’d probably cry. I used to lie about where I got my borrowed duds to the cool girls so that they’d like me and invite me to sit with them at lunch. Girls with shiny vlog cameras made thrift store hopping cool. In 2012, the word “Goodwill” left my mouth with the same disgust as the word “vomit.” When my dad would get paid, I begrudgingly got in my mom’s 2007 Civic to try and replicate the outfits of the girls I wanted to be (think overpriced Southern t-shirts and ill-fitting knockoff North Face jackets). I was a weird, overly talkative little girl with few friends, and the fact that we couldn’t (or my mom didn’t want to) afford most name brands was a source of constant embarrassment for me. I was a brat. A tween-aged, materialistic, brainwashed brat.

Skip forward a few years, my dad got a raise, and in my desperation to seem cool and normal, I developed an awful shopping habit. Fast fashion brands were my crack. I was in a brand new outfit each week, trying to impress boys I didn’t like and girls I pretended not to care about. It was addictive. The constant want for new clothes, new things, and just more didn’t feel like a want anymore. It was a need. I was a 14-year-old junkie; Forever 21 and my cripplingly low self-esteem waved the needle in my face. I spent so much money filling a void that the fashion industry convinced me I had. 

Maybe it was an intervention from a higher power, maybe it was fate, but videos speaking out against fast fashion began to litter my Youtube recommendations. I don’t know what possessed my haul video obsessed mind to start watching, but something clicked within me. I decided I was going to quit fast fashion cold turkey, and it actually worked. I began buying exclusively secondhand. It was better for society, better for my parents’ wallets, and helped me to branch out as an individual. I was putting together unique outfits, and people liked them. I was different, but this time in a way that didn’t push people away. 

I feel almost like an archaeologist, in a way. I’m unearthing pieces no one else has, and I know that each unique item has a story. It’s taught me to take risks, to step outside my comfort zone. In a thrift store, I choose clothes that I like without blaring music and trendy employees making me feel SO uncool (I’m looking at you, Urban Outfitters). That weird insecure little girl has turned into a butterfly that rejoices when she finds Liz Claiborne jeans, and I couldn’t be happier.

introducing my gaybies Zara and Paige!

Paige is a brooding young adult with a dry humour, she has a very religious family which she rebeled against by dressing “satanic” when she was in her teens but now that shes older and in college she wears a lot more colour in her everyday life. Her best friend & roommate Harriet Choy keeps her active by creating havoc in their lives while Paige grounds Harriet’s wild nature once in a while.

Zara is a busy woman with being team captian of her soccer team and student rep of her course. She is compassionate and kind and uses her muscle to help others. She is extremely book smart giving her not only strenght, but smarts as well but yet she still has never had a significant other in her life (probably due to being oblivious to how others feel about her). She’s a party animal and that often gets her in trouble after way too many drunk kisses

Stop wearing Zara and definitely stop wearing Amiri if you do! I have a ton of friends who wear Zara and are die hard fans for reasons that are beyond me. I do not care that Zara copies off of everything because thats just Fast Fashion, but the clothes are trash and too expensive for what they are. I would say that their quality is comparable to the likes of Forever 21 and H&M, but for some reason they are 4x the price. Also, the style of their clothing is about the same. There are SO many better options than Zara! Someone tell me why they like Zara, please. Also let me know if you like Amiri because Id love to pick your mind. Amiri, to me, is equivalent to the likes of Philpp Plein. I dont have much to say about Amiri because I feel like its already hated on so no reason to beat a dead horse.
