Psychology of Colors, Fonts & Shape in Logo Design

Psychology of Colors, Fonts & Shape in Logo Design | Interesting Reads | Scoop.it

A logo is the strongest symbol of a brand. It's what consumers stop at when scanning the shelves, trying to choose between 20 seemingly similar products. These signs and symbols helps people to make decisions faster, and it helps people to feel like they made the right purchasing decision.

 

That means the colors, shapes, and fonts you choose for your client's brand image are essential to not only making them recognizable but also creating a sense or trust or authority or affordability or even excitement -- whatever emotions the company wants to be associated with. Colorfast created the below infographic to detailing how influential color, font, and shape choice is when crafting a logo. Learn the science behind how we interpret these small symbols...

Care and Feeding of Networks & 10 Must Follow Scoopiteers | Interesting Reads | Scoop.it

This post was fun to write. I spent the morning writing about the importance of thinking digital first. This post shares 5 tips about the care and feeding of possibly your most important asset - your network of support, advocacy and content. If your content network isn't the most important thing no one really thinks about very often I don't know what is.

Totally agree with Marty, each of these Scoopers uses Scoop.it to build their readership.  That's right they are using Other Peoples Content (OPC) that they curate to build their own following and traffic to their channels be it a website or social network.

Does power make you mean?

Does power make you mean? | Interesting Reads | Scoop.it
Research suggests that a default brain mechanism may cause us to lose empathy when we gain power. So promotions really do make us mean.

 

In one of the first studies to make this claim, scientists now say a default brain mechanism may cause us to lose empathy when we gain power...

 

Obhi and his team found feelings of increased powerfulness shut down our mirroring system -- and potentially our empathy -- through a default mechanism in our brains.

 

Liza Aziz-Zadeh, assistant professor at the University of Southern California, studies empathy from a neuroscience perspective and says the findings are interesting. "People who activate their mirroring system more, also score higher on empathy."

MIRROR NEURONS:  People who activate their mirroring system more, also score higher on empathy.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 30, 2013 9:29 AM

Very interesting.  I especially like the following section:

 

"What we have found is that when people get power and move up, but don't understand how to relate, don't communicate well, and appear insensitive, cold, and authoritarian -- that ultimately derails their careers," he says.

 

This comes at an enormous cost in time, money, and morale to companies, he adds.

 

 

"In practical terms, this type of research may eventually be used and put together with training programs like mindfulness training and educational workshops for executives to deal with power better," says Obhi, but adds that we are only just beginning to understand the effects of power.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:08 PM

This is an interesting study. What about those who begin with little or no empathy?

Inquiring Minds Want to Know! Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn

Inquiring Minds Want to Know! Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn | Interesting Reads | Scoop.it

Helping students learn how to learn: That’s what most educators strive for, and that’s the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers.

Audrey's curator insight, October 1, 2013 1:47 PM

Tools to help learning are everywhere. No educational instiitution should limit learning to reading, writing, arithmetic, and science in confined spaces. The arts, cooking, games, languages, debating, gardening, playing cards, flower arranging expands the brain as much as everything else we learn.  

 

Education and learning do not belong to schools, colleges or universities. There are lot of spaces in city buildings housing banks  where youngsters can spend part of their week learning to add and multiply real figures.  

 

How about teaching youngsters about healthy nutrition by spending half terms on farms. Nutrition incorporates science, biology and expands the brain.........................  

Say Keng Lee's curator insight, October 7, 2013 3:09 AM

That's right! Inquiry learning works best on longer, deep dive projects when students have to create something of their own out of what they’ve found.

Training Teachers to Teach Critical Thinking | Edutopia.org

Training Teachers to Teach Critical Thinking | Edutopia.org | Interesting Reads | Scoop.it

Thinking critically is one thing, but being able to teach it can be quite another. Katie Kirkpatrick, dean of instruction at KIPP King Collegiate High School, developed the school's Speech & Composition class, a requirement for all students. In the class, students learn basic critical-thinking skills. The class has been so effective that she now trains teachers how to leverage critical-thinking skills in their classrooms as well. We sat down with Katie to learn about how she trains staff. Here are her answers to some of our questions.

 

Define what critical thinking in the classroom is.


It's an approach to teaching that allows students to make sense of the content. They analyze the content, they evaluate the content, and they're able to apply it to their daily lives. Teachers ask specific questions to get the students to do those things.

 

How is your training session structured?


It's a three-hour training on the frameworks that I use in my own course, which I generated from the Toulmin Model of Argumentation. It involves having participants go through the entire process of writing an argument, just as they would if they were students in my classroom.

 

The framework involves three specific phases:
