After a lot of trial and error, and going back to the drawing board (quite literally), I finished my Real Problem, Real Solutions project. Hurray!
I took my initial ideas and ended up expanding on it, by designing a logo for the project and working that in to my overall design. I wanted the logo to be modern and appealing, because all the literacy logos out there felt very public school to me.
I stuck with black, white, and red to make a dramatic statement and created some merchandise to use in conjunction with local libraries.
Let me know what you think of the project!
