While still in college, learning to be a logo designer/graphic designer, I was approached by a non-profit organization that supports families by providing supervision and direction for youth through after-school, holiday and summer enrichment programs in the area. This organization, Community Partners with Youth, had just started and was looking for some direction. I took the project very seriously as I was in my junior year of college and I was getting paid for this job, a whole $50!
I sketched probably 40 different ideas and brought them all to the office to present. The sketch for this logo was the decided winner. I then spent what seemed like forever converting it into a vector format file, probably around 5 hours. I think I was using Photoshop version 2 and Illustrator 3? back on Mac OS 7!!! Good times.
To give you an idea of doing this now, because I don’t have the logo in my files, I re-created this logo in Illustrator in under 10 minutes.
