Union Square Logo Hunt

Here is your first assignment. There are logos all around you, and for the purposes of this class and for your future work as designers it is good to become aware of them and what you think of them. Break into three teams and go out into Union Square. In one hour, find as many logos as you can in one of the following categories and bring them back to class, in physical, photographed, or sketched form:

Animals
Arrows
Birds
Botanical Motifs (Leaves, Trees, Flowers)
Buildings
Crosses
Crowns
Dogs
Eyes
Flags
Fragments
Geometric Figures
Globes
Greek alphabet
Handwriting
Hearts
Initials
Keys
Lightning
Lions
Maritime
Möbius Strips / Infinity Symbols
Music
Mythology
Numbers
Science
Serpents
Stars
Waves
X

Meet back in the classroom and we’ll discuss what your team has found.
