Logo Contest Entry – Emily Lloyd

No illustrations, because I imagine the icons and shapes transliteracies take (touchscreen, digital video, book, etc) will change, and quickly, but the basic concept, rendered in text, will remain.

Logo Contest Entry – Ruth

[tweetmeme source=”librarianbyday” only_single=false]Ruth, who tweets at UtopianLibrary, created these logos Ruth writes

i worked with “transliteracy” as defined here on L&T, the macbook dictionary definition of “logo,” and the following guidelines to come up with this logo. the guidelines are from my own experience. a few are lessons i learned from my father when i entered a safety poster contest in 5th grade. those lessons stuck.

– a logo should speak its message without a whole lot of detail or explanation
– a logo should withstand time, at least until someone decides the image needs an overhaul
– logo art should be camera ready and easily/cleanly reproducible in various formats and sizes (print, digital, t-shirt, button, sidewalk chalk, skywriting)
– a logo’s color should be user’s choice and flexible

and for this specific logo…

-libraries have the tools and potential to reach globally and touch locally
-there are no symbols for the usable platforms, tools, or media that haven’t been discovered yet

and that’s pretty much it.

Justin writes

I just saw your contest and thought “you know what, I love graphic design and the killer job most people do with it. But I can’t do that. All I can create are little cartoons.”

So my thinking behind this was just to be Justin and try something that I can do.

Visual Learning and Mind Mapping

[tweetmeme source=”Strng_Dichotomy” only_single=false]
Visual Learning & Mind Mapping was created and originally presented by Roger Hannon and Kaitlyn Mesley of Adult Learning Centres Grey-Bruce-Georgian for Transliteracy Conference 2010 in Owen Sound, Ontario. These videos give you a great visual representation of mind mapping, immersive learning, and how we are primarily visual learners. They also go into explaining how to use Power Point and mental models to educate adult learners.

These presentations will give you some great tools and ideas for your adult technology/non-technology programs and help you understand how they learn and retain information.
