OverviewTeam ObjectivesLogo ConsiderationsMethodsIn-house DesignerOutside ProfessionalCrowdsourcingScheduleBudgetProject ManagementProject Team MembersProject Team AssignmentsOverviewIn September, Everett Video will celebrate its five-year anniversary. More than a milestone, the anniversary offers an opportunity to evaluate the company’s identity, starting with the logo. The consensus throughout the company is to redesign the logo to reflect the free-spirited, creative culture and approach that have become the Everett Video hallmark. Last month, volunteers from each department formed a team to explore the company’s options for redesigning the logo. This report is the result of that exploration.Team ObjectivesThe team’s main objective was to identify options for redesigning the logo. These options include having Everett Video graphic designers complete the project internally, hiring a professional design firm or an external graphic designer, and crowdsourcing the redesign. Whether the design work is performed internally or externally, the team also wanted to specify what needs to change in the logo. In other words, what do employees and customers find appealing in the current logo, and what do they find stale, cluttered, or confusing?1Logo ConsiderationsThe completed logo should be simple, memorable, timeless, versatile, and appropriate for the company. The team identified the following elements to evaluate and consider in the logo and the project overall:- Company name - Tagline- Color palette- Font- Design style- Competitors’ logos- Schedule- Budget1 The proposed survey is available on evideo.cengage.comThis file created specifically for Alex BossieMethodsEverett Video can use one of three methods to redesign the logo, each with associated benefits and drawbacks.In-house DesignerThe advantage of using an in-house designer is budget. The company would not incur extra costs for the design work because the project would be assigned and completed as a typical Everett Video graphic design project.iThe drawback of doing the redesign in-house is that using internal resources means that at least one designer is not working on revenue-producing projects during the redesign. Schedules are also tight, making it difficult to fitan internal project into the mix without delaying a client’s project.Outside ProfessionalOutside professionals fall into two categories: a design firm and a single independent contractor. In both cases, working with an external graphic designer involves time to meet and review the work. The design firm that Everett Video originally hired is no longer in business, so someone would have to identify, interview, and select a new firm or contractor.The benefits of working with an outside professional are expertise and simplified management. Budget is a concern, as logo-design services start atThis file created specifically for Alex BossieIn-house DesignerOutside ProfessionalCrowdsource$75 per hour. On the other hand, a well-designed logo can last 10 years, making the cost worth the investment. CrowdsourcingIn general, crowdsourcing involves soliciting ideas, services, or content from a group, usually an online community. A few websites that provide graphic design services through crowdsourcing have top-notch recommendations from their clients. They connect designers from around the world with customers who want high-quality, affordable design services.In all the crowdsourcing websites surveyed, a client pays a fee, submits a project through the website, and describes the goals, such as redesigning a logo. A typical fee is around $300. The online community of graphic artists submits ideas to earn the project fee.Advantages are cost and access to a wide range of graphic artists, while disadvantages are management time to filter the proposed ideas and select a graphic artist.ScheduleBased on past projects and discussions with graphic designers, Everett Videocan expect the logo redesign project to take six weeks.Phase WeeksPlanning 1Sketching 3Revising 2BudgetDesign services are only part of the cost of redesigning the logo.
