Creating Web 2.0 Logos using Web tools

I’m part of “Web 2.0 Wednesday” where each Wednesday Michele Martin posts a Web 2.0 activity for us to try. This week Michele asked us to create a logo for our Web 2.0 Wednesdays — only condition was we had to use Web 2.0 tools to create the logo.

I love tasks that really challenge me and this is a challenge as I’m not the most creative or imaginative person around. The idea is this logo will be used for branding the posts we write so will need to be about 200 to 250 pixels wide.

I did consider using images from Flickr and tried manipulating them using Dumpr but felt it would probably make the logo too busy. So instead I checked out the amazing number of free online Web 2.0 logo generators. Here is what I’ve created:

FINAL THOUGHTS

Now I need your help! Can you please tell me do you like any of the logos? And if so, which one(s) and why?

Lets be honest I’m not creative! Perhaps you could help us out by joining us for Web 2.0 Wednesdays and coming up with our logo using Web 2.0 tools? I’m sure you are a lot more creative than me and besides its lots of fun searching for the right tools to do the task.

  1. These are great, Sue! Thanks for trying out different generators and showing us how they’d look. And I think my personal favorite is the first one. πŸ™‚

  2. I’m the same. I get really stressed when my student midwives want to do something ‘arty farty’ πŸ™‚ Give me a 3000 word essay any day!

    My opinion – prefer 1 or 2 because they are the ‘simplest’

  3. […] This week the suggestion for the group was to create a logo for our Wednesday encounters. Well, a while back, when I started, I had created one using wordle. So, here’s my share. Just loved the ones I saw, especially Sue Waters’s. […]

  4. Hi Sue,
    great stuff… I like logos 1 and 4. 1 is simple and eyecatching with the red. 4 has a bit more hmmmm… lost for words… style/panache/oomph a bit different to a buttony look, I like the irregular shape…
    great stuff… and a wonderful idea

  5. Thanks once again for this fantastic resource. My kids are the winners of my new web 2.0 knowledge.

  6. I liked 4 & 5 the best as they were both simple in design and had bright colours that attracted your eye. For me 1, 2, & 3 were a bit too busy and didn’t stand out enough and 6 though clear was a little bit too simplistic.

  7. Thanks everyone so far for your feedback on the different logos. Interesting to note so far it looks like we have a tie for submissions of mine into the logo vote.

    Michele, Sarah and Suz like logo number 1. Suz, Lyna and Heather like logo number 4. Ashley – I’m thinking you might have to vote or maybe I will just have to have two logos in the vote with everyone else’s?

  8. I like 4 however I do think they need to be different colours …They should either compliment or antagonise to be really effective …those are just too mmmmm

  10. Hi Sue,
    I was so caught up with web 2.0 logos that I decided to let the kids design one for our reading club and blog, using the web 2.0 tools. I made one for web 2.0 wednesday as an example and placed it on my blog I have sent you a copy, if it is not too late to enter a new logo.
    My email is school based and they have a tendency to delete some images etc sent in email …did you get it?

  11. Sue, I would have to agree with Heather. I like the notion of reflecting – the focus is then taken away from the technology itself and forces us to think about the impact on learning.

    Many thanks for sharing these resources. Lina πŸ™‚

  12. @Silvana (Mrs Cunningham) Yours is definitely more creative than mine and I hope the students decide to get involved with a workshop. Can I suggest you go past Michele’s blog and let her know about your logo?

    @Lina (linapell) at the moment someone else’s entry is beating mine which is fine but number 4 is definitely coming second. You can go to the wiki and add your own vote.

  13. Hi Sue,
    so yes the kids are all gun ho to design the logos for the reading club but they are bombarding me with…is this all it does what else can it do? I sure should have explored the buttons before I let the kids lose on them…..they have some really creative ideas now all we need to do is get thebuttons to do what they want…me I am confused errrrrr ….their favourite comment at the moment is …please miss can you come and get me confused too….little punks! (just kidding)

  14. Hey Sue,
    I wasn’t really sure where to give you a comment back, so I just did it here. πŸ™‚ (by the way I love all of the logos, but #4 was my favorite.)

    Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting it!
    Yes, I had a lot of difficulty figuring out how to get that HTML code to show for the gcast podcast, and if you could help me that would be great.

    Thanks again,
    Meg

  15. Hi Sue,
    Yeah, I am also very upset that they are knocking it down. It was such a great place for baseball. It’s history is unbelievable and It is just a wonderful memorial. I thought they would at least keep it up, for memories and displays. I will always remember Yankee Stadium though and all the time I spent there with family watching the games. But I do look forward to the new stadium with maybe a sense of flashback. History all over again?

    And yes, it is a great idea for the blogging competition. And I agree completely, I can’t wait to meet new students and all the intelligence we truly have in this world. It’s so exciting!

  16. @Meg Good question about where to comment back. I think you handled it well. Normally I will write a comment back underneath where the person commented on my post β€” so that other readers know that I respond back to comments.

    Unlike most people I use comment tracking tools which means that if I write a comment on your post and you respond back to it β€” I am told that you have written a comment and I can come back to your blog.

    Most people don’t know how to track comments so you want to know that they have seen their comment then drop past their blog and write a comment on one of their posts like you have done.

    Now with Gab Cast – if you give me the original link to where the Gab cast is located I will insert it into the post for you.

    Unfortunately none of my logos won πŸ™

    @Rob I’ve dropped past your blog and left a comment on the post πŸ™‚

  17. Thank you for clearing that up with me, now I can show my classmates so they can add it to their blogs, also. πŸ™‚

  18. In one of the comments you gave me on my blog, you mentioned about how you use comment-tracking tools that tell you when people comment you back. I was wondering if you could explain to me how to do that–it would be such a big help to me (and my class), because we sometimes never know when we get responses to blog comments.

    Please, if you could, get back to me whenever you have the time, that would be great.

  19. @Meg I’ve sent the details of how to track comments to your teacher with all the relevant posts that explain how so he can help you work out the best option for everyone. Let me know how you go.
