Out with the Apples and in with the Dots!

By Sydney Meyer, Nine Network PIN anaylst

As a former teacher I was so excited about the effort to “redesign the imagery” around teachers. I have had my share of apple ornaments for my Christmas tree, apple designed aprons, apple candles and wooden apples for my desk. It was so refreshing to see some activity on this topic of teacher image.

So check out Studio360’s video that outlines how this design firm arrived at a new “image for teachers”.

After viewing it, come back to this site and let me know what you think by leaving your comment in the comment box below this article.

Thanks and enjoy!

    This comment is about the new teacher logo. I like it, mostly because it requires some effort. I don’t know if it will catch on, though, mostly because it requires some effort.

    I like the connecting symbolism because that is what teachers do. It is clean and modern and not warm and fuzzy and will take time to adjust to or not for a lot of people.

    The connect the dots concept to rebrand teachers left me cold. It didn’t grab me in any way. But then again, I am not a teacher.

    It is certainly not warm and fuzzy like the old images of teachers. But I like the clean, modern look of it and I do feel that teachers are connectors. But it is a model that you will like or not like for sure.

    I like the modern look of the connect the dots but it makes me think of science teachers.
