Logo design

All of my logos have been designed and made on www.logoyes.comMy first design is simple, yet effective. It has a first aid plus sign with Howard Heath Centre written underneath it. To improve this design, I could have used a different colour contrast to make it stand out.My second design has an image of a heart with a heart rate on it. This logo will help the public to recognise HHC as a health centre because of the image. To improve this logo, I should change the colour of the ‘hhc’.Finally, my third design is also quite simple and effective. The image has two letter ‘h’s’ with a ‘c’ behind it. It also has Howard Health Centre written underneath it.QuestionnaireI interviewed 10 people and here are the questions asked, and the most popular answers given:1.

It’s a really quick and easy to do and can copy and paste large amounts of data which is very useful.Many different types of information are stored in my payroll. This includes Wage, Tax Rates and Posts.This data needs to be stored on the HHD – Hard Disk Drive because this will keep the data safe and it would help to keep it more reliable. It would also be easier to update.If the data wasn’t saved, then it would be a really difficult job to keep track of who gets paid what amount and who plays what part in HHC.My data will be displayed in the form of an excel spreadsheet because it is a clearer way of presenting all the information. It makes everything easier to understand, and it is very easy to change the information or edit parts of data. If you make a mistake, it can be easily fixed on a spreadsheet, whereas if you were to do it manually, it would be so much harder because you would have to keep starting again. This saves time as well as money. Formatting the data in this way is less pressure and hassle because there is no need to worry about loosing certain parts of information because it is all put together in one spreadsheet.Payroll spreadsheet:Data spreadsheet:The calculations performed are:Gross pay – the total amount of money that an employee earns each month, excluding deductions such as taxes, national insurance tax etc.Salary – total amount of money each employee earns each yearIn excel, I used the cell reference: =Data!G2/12Wage – number of hours worked and number of weeks workedthe formula I used in excel was: =Data!E2*Data!F2*Data$!$2Tax – the amount that is taken out of your salary which is given to the government to help provide essential services such as police, fire departments, hospitals, schools etc.Net pay – the amount that an employee would earn at the end of the month after deductions such as tax etcFormulae sheet:It is important that no mistakes are made because if the data is wrong, then an employee may earn more or less money than they are supposed to. If it carried on, then in the long run, people may decide to leave the company because they are not getting paid what they should be, which ma cause employees to resign from their post.The validation methods used in the data handling are:* Mid* Vlookup* Data validation/list/=postsHere are some of the payslips for each of the employees:Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSMcDonaldDoctorTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)H5,666.671,983.333,683.33Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSSinghDoctorTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)H5,666.671,983.333,683.33Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSBrownDoctorTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)H5,666.671,983.333,683.33Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSSinghLocum DoctorTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)B1,500.00225.001,275.00Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSTaylorNurseTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L520.00130.00390.00Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSChungNurseTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L520.00130.00390.00Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSJohnsonSenior AdministratorTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L1,432.00358.001,074.00Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionJBattersbyDoctors ReceptionistTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L396.0099.00297.00Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionPAdamsDoctors ReceptionistTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L396.0099.00297.00Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionHCropperDoctors ReceptionistTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L237.6059.40178.20Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSCorbettCall Out DriverTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L333.6083.40250.20Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionDGrayCall Out DriverTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L333.6083.40250.20Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionRSatterthwaiteCall Out DriverTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L333.6083.40250.20Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionPNaharCall Out DriverTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L264.0066.00198.00Howard Health CentreDateNamePositionSBordoliCall Out DriverTax CodeMonthly Gross Pay (�)Taxation (�)Net Pay (�)L264.0066.00198.00????????1
