A logo design for my Cegep’s student union.
After MSU got accredited, I was inspired to express the independence and liberty gained by the congress, and did so through the significance of the wings. Simplicity and minimalism were key factors in the process of creating this, but I wanted a modern approach rather than a traditional and highly decorated logo. So I opted colours out for clarity and used a display typeface (for “MSU”) to give it a “new modern age” look, but made sure that it still held a level of elegance and sophistication.
In the cross design, I took four elements in which I thought best represented the mission of the student union. Firstly, the light bulb symbolizes the innovation of congress to generate ideas to better the life of the students of Marianopolis. The gavel demonstrates the emphasis that congress puts on the justice of the students. The people, illustrate the unity of congress and the student body. And finally, the graduation cap represents the success and accomplishments of Marianopolis students after graduating.
