22 Days & Counting & New Artist Logo!
Today I made a decision!
Happy Hopscotch Design, the firm I am using for my new artist website design, came to me with an intriguing proposition a few weeks ago in regard to my need for a new artist logo. One of their top executives, Sarah-Leigh Wills, teaches a design class at Cornwall College in England. She thought my logo project might make a good one for her students to work on as a class project. I jumped at the chance to use the students in her class to design something! The winner would receive a cash prize, a signed photo, a signed CD, and the use of their logo in my branding. I will also travel to meet the winner and others in the class when I travel to London to promote my album.
There were seven students in the design class who participated in the project. Today, I went through each design with Sarah and we discussed their merits. A winner was chosen, a long with a second and third place winner.
Now, I’m going to keep you in suspense a bit longer, but I will be announcing the winner and runners up in the next few days, as well as post the logo that won! I was blown away at how seriously the students approached this project and I don’t think I could have had a better logo if I tried.
It is really rewarding to work with students who are brand new in their careers….because that is exactly where I am too. I understand the need for someone to give you a break and if I can help just one student by using their work in my branding, then I have done something with a real impact.
I can’t wait to share my new logo with you!
