trashed logo

I am very excited to introduce Trashed.

Trashed is a creative online platform for teenagers. It’s part online youth culture magazine and part personalised portfolio – allowing them to create and collaborate on multimedia content with direct help and advice from working professionals in the music, fashion, media and arts industries.

The platform facilitates and encourages collaboration – users can work alone, in groups, or remotely with other users on projects, and are encouraged to constructively critique each other’s work.

Our up-to-date online advice and tutorials come from top professionals working in the creative industries – including editors, writers, broadcasters, designers, photographers, programmers, and leadings figures in the fields of performing arts, fashion and arts and crafts. Challenges are set and critiqued by industry figures, employers and brands – giving students unique, real-world experience that can both help with curriculum requirements and boost college, university or job applications. We are also building a database of creative work experience placements specifically for teenagers in the UK.

Access to the constantly updated bank of tutorials and industry news, the creative challenges, and the work experience database, is charged to schools on a quarterly or annual subscription basis. The only equipment needed is computers with internet access.

I have designed the logo for the new creative online platform and I’m also currently developing further elements to the identity as well as hopefully getting involved with other aspects and opportunities of Trashed. The concept of Trashed’s logo was to keep it as a simple and clear image but with a twist and for it to be able to work further as part of the overall identity. I chose DIN Bold for the typeface making the logo clean, crisp and up to date. The ‘ED’ has been reversed to reflect the word Trashed but also to represent what they are about, creativity. The logo will be featuring and working alongside other graphical elements for it’s identity which I am currently developing with Trashed as well featuring on it’s own on the website.

For more information, head over to the corporate website of Trashed and this is definitely something to keep your eyes on so watch this space and I’ll update more about Trashed as soon as I can so watch this space as well. You can also find Trashed on Facebook here. And you can follow the latest about Trashed on their Twitter here.
