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):

Questions:

  • 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. 

⟶ Here's a resource that extends this interactive called Analyze: The Influence of Advertisements


Thanks to Catherine Griffin of Algonquin Regional High School (MA) for reaching out with this activity idea:

156 Americans are asked to draw the ten most popular logos from memory.  I put my students in groups with markers and poster paper and challenge them to draw these ten logos from memory. I usually give them about 10 minutes. Then, I go through the website with them and show them the correct logo and all the other logos people tried to draw. My students love this activity!

Tim Ranzetta

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.
