What shapes, forms, fonts, etc. will help to visually communicate my ‘brand’? You can use any digital design tool or hand draw your logo.

A short summary (minimum 200 words) describing your process of completing this project and to analyze the choices you made in the final version. You will discuss why you chose a particular logo shape, use of colors, and the reasons for any revisions.
Two copies of your logo: a color and a grayscale version.
