Problem Statement: How can I make an interesting display in MSW Logo?



Display in LOGO:

Design Brief: To make an interesting display in LOGO.

  • Need to know how to use LOGO, e.g. learn more commands.
  • Decide what can be eye-catching and unique, e.g. research good displays.
  • Start making rough designs/animations, come up with different ideas.
  • Although researching and looking at different designs, don't copy/plaguerise completely.


Research: LOGO commands
  • ​penup
  • pendown
  • penerase
  • forward
  • right
  • left
  • repeat 4 [method]
  • setfc
  • setpc
  • circle 45
  • edit "method name"
  • whirl wait penerase whirl
  • bye
  • hideturtle
  • showturtle
  • home
  • setps
  • sound [frequency duration]



Research: Interesting images

Why I chose these designs (by order of picture):

  1. This fascinates me a great deal because it shows complications and the colour is amazing! Whoever made this is a very experienced person in MSW Logo. Wikipedia - MSW Logo
  2. I believe this picture is very interesting because of how it confuses the eye with the spirals and numerous squares. I also like it because it seems complicated and impossible to do, and looks gorgeous. Logo - Turtle Graphics
  3. I believe this picture is very interesting because of how it confuses the eye with the spirals and numerous squares. I also like it because it seems complicated and impossible to do, and looks gorgeous. Northumberland Mathematics Resources
  4. Below, I have written what I could do to excel in my design, and one of them was to make it look complicated and create illusions. This picture certainly creates illusions to my eye. Logo challenge - Math Cats
  5. I love this design because of how it is not simply one main part and that's it, like most others. It is first a complicated-looking circle, then on top a symmetrical design. It also looks very interesting. Logo challenge - Math Cats
  6. This image depicts many things, which is a very original and difficult thing to do. It could mean circus or mime, because of its colour and pattern inside, or it could simply mean the letter C, which is very interesting. Logo challenge - Math Cats

Design Specification: What I must have in my Logo design to make it interesting
  • I want to have symmetrical designs in my LOGO presentation.
  • I will make my design eye catching with analogous colours (colours that blend with each other)
  • I will make all my designs in my presentation blend in one another in a pleasing way.
  • I shall make it original
  • I want it to be about 1 min. long.

Design Specification: To excel, what I shoud have in my design

  • It should have a meaning.
  • It has to look complicated and create illusions to the eye.
  • It could have colour, not too much but just the right amount.
  • Attract attention

Artistic Debate: Must or could
​Must:

  • I have said what I must have to make an interesting display in Logo, and if I wasn't artistic, which means knowing what looks good, and what to put where, then the design wouldn't look interesting at all.
  • Being artistic helps greatly in having originality and making it eye-catching.
  • Above I have written specifically that I wanted symmetrical designs and analogous colours, and only if I was artistic or trying to be artistic would I know what colours blend and what are good symmetrical designs.
Could:
  • On the other hand, one doesn't have to have colour at all, but to excel my design I could add colour, which means I have to be artistic. But that is only if I want to.
  • To have a meaning, I must be greatly artistic. For example, if I wanted to show myself, I would have to make a somewhat unique auto-portrait, because there is only one me. But to do that I should have artistic sense.
  • To make something look complicated, I should have an artistic sense,because otherwise how will I know if it's complicated or not?
