Solving the Problem

Target group:

Young urban individuals between the ages of 18 and 35 who are interested in culture, food, design, trends and the night scene.

People who like craft beer and ‘dude food’. People who like to socialise in a casual setting with a combination of traditional and modern design.

Logo characteristics:

It should be simple and easily recognisable
Timeless. Try to use no more than 3 colours
The logo may contain a symbol / figure / ornament. This is optional.

Clean, minimalist with a taste of traditional that can work on all products including glass, coasters and posters.

Design Challenge:

Traditional with a modern twist.

Hipster, letterpress, quality, homemade, professional.

‘Hipster’ clashes with ‘timeless’ as it is a style movement, the same as metro-sexual. And ‘dude food’ clashed with hipster, quality and professional.

Moodle Doodle

Task: Choose a metaphor/concept/analogy that illustrates how you see Moodle with all its different elements and areas.

“Messy”

Moodle is a forum-based platform. It is difficult to navigate because of the design and the vocabulary. Therefore the presentation of information on the platform is ‘messy’ and the information input for the viewer is ‘messy’.

A mess – random scribbles that do not seem to function together, however, as a whole, they create an image/impression.

A scribble is unordered, unkempt, confusing, or meaningless, though it has its own form – loose but present – so the mind can still make sense of it. Over time, the eyes start to see patterns and pathways to destinations – familiarity. What first may be a mess can become chaotic order.
