MFL Progress Logo Design
With a new project underway at the University of Warwick, I was hired to create, among many things, a visual device/logo for their new bespoke online learning platform.
The project had an audience consisting of primary school teachers, who were coming to learn how to teach a Modern Foreign Language (MFL) at the primary school level.
With this came an interesting dynamic of audience: adults who work with young children. Professionals, who are often surrounded by childish things: bright colours, strongly defined shapes and of course, children. With the task of creating an appealing logo, I set out on my task.
After much refinement and feedback from fellow team members, this is what was created. We went with a simple icon of two child figures holding hands paired with a wordmark.
Inspired by bright colours, and bold shapes of a child-like environment, I utilised a fridge magnet style, paired with a bold yet clean font in a deep blue, a common corporate and professional colour.
The result was well received.
Along with creating the logo, custom icons were created also. In a similar fashion to the logo, there was an interesting dynamic at play. I went with bright, block colours and clean minimal shapes.
It was later decided that listening would not be a unit by itself as it was more naturally a part of the conversational speaking units. I have included the icon here for display as though it was not used, it was also completed.
For each module completed, there was a corresponding badge of completion. This combined the shield plaque design along with the icons.

The visual assets, which I was in charge of, included creating the icons for the custom login screen, the landing page slider, the course images, and more as can be seen here.
