For the last extra Design Assignment I chose for this week was the “Create a Logo That is Simple But Detailed” assignment. There is actually a bit of a long story behind this logo, but I also thought it was fitting with the apocalyptic theme of this class (I also found it rather hilarious). The logo itself is very simple (as per the instructions of the assignment), but a lot of thought went into this.
For a long time I had wanted to open a café of my own, but then I realized my bigger dream was to become a teacher. Maybe later in life, after I have retired, I will open this café. However, it is not something that I could do for the rest of my life. I had taken a Small Business class in Germanna and that is where I was able to create my café a bit (and where I came up with the name). “Perkatory” is a noun meaning the anguished, prolonged period spent waiting for a fresh pot of coffee to be ready. I thought it was funny and decided to name my café after it. This assignment allowed me to make a logo for this, so I’m really happy I was given this chance to do so.
