I had written previously about a blog started by students in our Educational Psychology and Educational Technology Ph.D. program (ideaplay.org) and had designed a couple of ambigrammatic logos for them. You can see the original post here. Here is one of the original designs I had provided:
Mete, one of the graduate students modified one of the designs to use as a banner, as follows:
I like what he has done in this version, particularly how he highlights the horizontal symmetry of the design by making the bottom half look like a shadow of the top half. Pretty cool. However, I felt that it was missing a bit of the colorful aspects of play. So I created a new design building on the first version but changing the way the letters were written. I think this new logo captures both the symmetry of the design as well as its playful nature.
What do you think?
