Project Description

Design a logo using the Golden Ratio

  1. Pick any animal or plant you'd like — anything naturally occurring 
  2. Find your reference image and start sketching — update your Project Workspace as you go along! 
  3. Start gridding and incorporate the Golden Ratio — join your shapes once your grid is complete 
  4. Fine-tune your logo and add color — add that extra polish of perfection to your mark 

Please share your finished logo, along with your grids overlaid onto it, and any sketches or rough ideas along the way. Looking forward to seeing your marks come to life.
