Every EVO session needs a logo!

 

 

If you still don't have a LoGo  for your session, it is time to start working on it. There are different ways to go about it:

 

  1. Go to a logo maker site and create your logo using the prompts the site provides
  2. Look for an non-copyrighted image that represents the content of your session, edit it to add the title of your session or any other detail. You can edit your images using
    1. Paint
    2. PowerPoint
    3. Photoshop
    4. PixlR
    5. Canva 
    6. or any other image editor 
  3. If you are Photoshop savvy, you can create your logo from scratch :-)

 

 

4 Characteristics of a GREAT logo:

 

  • Make It.....
      • Unique: simple but not obvious
        •  Adaptable to different media
          •  Appropriate to your target audience
            • Timeless 

  

 

Below are sites suggested by group members where you can make a logo or select a copyright free image to use as your logo. Please add any good tools you find for these purposes. And remember, you can always take a picture of a representative object and photoshop it.

 

NOTE: TESOL has asked that you do not use their logo. It is copyrighted and would imply their direct supervision of your session.
