Based off the Google Doc blog changes, I decided to resuscitate a concept written on that document and make it into my semester project.
The idea was to make a logo for the class blog… so I did exactly that.
I wanted take the name “Convergent Media, Divergent Voices” a make an artist rendition of the classes structure and class description.
I actually didn’t know the true meaning of the title of the class; So I started off looking up at what “Convergent” and “Divergent” means and I learned that Convergent means, “coming closer together, especially in characteristics or ideas” while Divergent means, “tending to be different or develop in different directions.”
I wanted to focus incorporating those meanings into my logo so I chose using a world as the base to represent the world, specifically more so the internet (it’s the internet representation of the world). I researched different representations of the world wide web and stuck close to the universal, circle with many line world logo.
But I still needed something to represent the divergent aspect. Our class is primarily a Digital Media class– for crying out loud we’re a communications class. While the world wide web encompasses that concept of technology, it needed a more direct meaning to bi-directional conversations. When I think of communication I think of a internet network (i know, ironic considering we steered so far away from ethernet cables). With the network cables on the bottom it shows different directions/variants one might take compared to someone else.
Let me know what you guys think.
