How Kristen L Holden started their logo design journey

Overview

When Gap was founded in 1969, its targeted customers were the younger generation. Hip young customers who appreciated the high quality jeans they produced. As the business idea became successful, Gap expanded its offerings and now targets men, women and children with its wide range of products. See: http://www.gap.com More about gap's long history can be found by viewing the wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gap_(c…_retailer)

Brand Name

The Gap Inc

Requirements

The goal of this project is to design a far more suitable and recognizable logo based on the target market and the companies iconic products. The recently released logo (newlogo.jpg) is extremely bland and has had a horrible backlash from the worlds design community. We feel that our design community can produce a far better logo! You are free to use your imagination when designing this logo. The only requirement is that your design reflect some aspect of the brands history or target market. A copy of the companies iconic original logo is also included (oldlogo.jpg) - Feel free to use this as inspiration. Every logo submitted should be: 1. Legible, easy to decipher the letters and the name of the company. Flipped or mirrored lettering goes against this. 2. Effective without color, looks good in black & white 3. Scalable. Works at 1 inch and 100 feet. 4. Versatile & multi-purpose. Has to reproduce well on business cards, pens, letterhead, mugs, tradeshow booths, etc. 5. Simple & memorable. Don't get too complicated. Come on designers - let’s show them how it’s done! Note: This is NOT an official Gap promotion and is in no way affiliated with or endorsed by The Gap Inc.
