During my initial conversations with the administrative staff at Risdon Middle School, I was presented with the following design criteria,

"We have selected a slate of school colors (shown below), and are looking for exciting, artistic, creative, inspirational logo ideas to consider as our official logo. Some characteristics that might be embodied in the logo, inspired by the Timberwolf, include: perseverance, value of relationships, protectiveness, balance of loyalty and independence, fierceness/strength, intelligence, ability to adapt to the environment, being a team player, cooperation, valuing family"

With this information, I teamed up with another artist, to begin the initial phases of the logo. Below are the initial drafts that we presented to the administrative board for feedback.

After a few minor adjustments, our design was adopted as the official logo for Risdon Middle School, and can presently be viewed at the school.
