Logotype Maker is a tool I discovered awhile ago on the Free Tech 4 Teachers blog.
I have used it for a few personal projects, but had not implemented it in my classroom yet. Yesterday, my fifth graders were working on “Genius Hour” projects – which I will be detailing in a future post. Some of the students are creating websites using Weebly. One pair was trying without success to create a banner for the top of their site, and it suddenly occurred to me to recommend Logotypemaker. They were so psyched about their results that other groups kept coming over to see what was going on. Several students wrote the site address down so they could try it at home, and two other groups immediately got to work on creating their own logos. If your students have blogs or websites, I highly recommend you show them this resource. It will not only generate hundreds of logo ideas, but will also allow the students to edit them to further personalize them.
