Unit 10 – Brief 2: Authentic Visual Identity – Research: Cubes & Issues

I am looking at the cube, because it has 6 sides. These sides make up the cube.
UAL is made up of 6 colleges.


/kyo͞ob/ Noun

A symmetrical three-dimensional shape, either solid or hollow, contained by six equal squares.

Wikipedia – Cube

In geometry, a cube[1] is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by six square faces, facets or sides, with three meeting at each vertex. The cube can also be called a regular hexahedron and is one of the five Platonic solids. It is a special kind of square prism, of rectangular parallelepiped and of trigonal trapezohedron. The cube is dual to the octahedron. It has cubical symmetry (also called octahedral symmetry). It is special by being a cuboid and arhombohedron.


In logo design it seems that the cube is a popular shape – See below generic image and text

A quick google search brings up similar images to what I was sketching yesterday.

By looking at what others have done, it is clear that this idea of perspectives could be applied to anything that has multiple sides e.g a business that has more than one sector.
I need to look at my concept a bit more in depth as well as think about how is an art institute is different from a multi sector company.
