Crowdspring - Logo Design

Take a look at the Crowdspring website. Organisations post a creative brief for the design of a logo or visual text, inviting people to submit their design and compete for the prize on offer. In terms of English teaching, each project allows for the deconstruction and analysis of the visual design. Students could also be asked to judge the entries for their preferred winner that is justified with a written or oral presentation. Potential uses by other KLAs could include study, analysis, evaluation or composition as follows:

PDHPE - healthcare logos
RE - not for profit and charity organisations
Business Studies - marketing of products and services
Visual Arts - participation in and analysis of the design projects
Music - music that might also serve the design brief

Potential assessment opportunities include presentation skills, understanding of visual techniques and design, metalanguage ... to name a few. Creative opportunities obviously exist for students to partipate in a design project. This is a great way to connect students as real life composers and analysts of visual texts.


  1. Thanks so much for mentioning crowdSPRING in your post. This sounds like an outstanding way to help teach students. I wonder if we could find a way to use this analysis to help designers too - they would love to receive this type of feedback. If you - or anyone teaching and planning to incorporate this idea into their curriculum is interested, please send me an email - ict@crowdspring.com - I'd love to talk to you about it.
