Interactive Monday: Can you draw these logos from memory?
Hat tip to Yanely for pointing out this site: neal.fun that has several fun interactives on it.
This week's interactive is all about corporate logos and your ability to draw them from memory.
Your students are given a blank palette and asked to draw a logo from memory. Note that several of the logos are multi-color which you can discover when you click on the color circle in the bottom left. Here's the first example (out of 12):
- Of the 12 companies, how many of their products do you use?
- Which logos were easier to draw? more difficult?
- How often do you see logos in a given day? Take a typical day and think about logos that you see most frequently.

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
