To me logos are a bit of an oxymoron. They are so universal and yet so specific. But if I could have one logo that would perfectly express my thoughts and feelings, I’d be happy.
I love to use logos as a way to show how I translate into different languages. In English, I use them to show if my English is good enough for the conversation we’re about to have. I use them to show if I’ve got good grammar and spelling. I use them to show how I would describe my work/day/personality if I were to speak in that language. I use them to show how I feel about something.
I’m not a native speaker, but I’ve heard that you can use a logo to show how you feel about something in a language you are not fluent in. In French, I use them to show if my French is good enough to have an English conversation about, and in German, I use them to show if the German I have spoken in is good enough for a conversation in the native language that I would be fluent in.
You can also use logos to show how you feel about something in a language you aren’t fluent in. As I mentioned earlier, logos are also used to show you what you think your mother tongue is. For example, if I’m on a plane and I see a logo for the word “flight”, I feel a little better knowing that I’ve picked up a language that makes sense and is the same as a flight.
The logos are used for a very specific purpose. To show that you are fluent in a language you wouldnt normally use to show that you have a natural aptitude for language. A person with no knowledge of a language would be hard pressed to know that a logo for the word flight is even a word.
The best example I can think of is the logo for Spanish. It’s not a language that you would normally use to show that you are fluent, but in order to show that you are fluent in Spanish you wouldnt normally use a logo with a symbol for the word “flight.” It’s a symbol that shows that you are fluent in a language you know. So basically its a great way to show that you are fluent in your mother tongue.
Well, its a great way to show that you are fluent in another language. For language enthusiasts, a logo that shows that you are fluent in another language is a great way to show that you are bilingual. For non-linguists, it shows that you are fluent in a language that you have studied.
To be fluent in a language, you have to know the language. To be bilingual, you must learn the language of another person or culture. So that means that the logo that we used for our logo, is not showing that we can learn the language of another culture and show that we are fluent in that culture. It is showing that we can learn the language of another language and we can show that we are bilingual.
This is the first trailer that shows translation of our logo onto other people’s photos.
