The QEP committee can now check “logo” off its list of must-haves, thanks to the winner of the recent logo competition.
Irving Bolanos, visual communications student, won the competition and its $200 Follett Bookstore prize. The design, pictured at right, was created to resemble a mobile phone app, Irving said.
The QEP logo contest was open to students in all visual communications classes and garnered 11 entries. The competition ran in conjunction with the recent slogan competition that was open to the Brookhaven College community.
Irving, an up-and-coming graphic designer, valued the experience as much as the prize, he said.
“This was my first paid gig,” Irving said. “The experience of being asked to change this, change this – my teacher said that’s common in the real world.”
The logo and slogan will be used on all QEP promotional material and on the first page of the plan submitted to evaluators, according to Haven Abedin, English professor and QEP committee chair.
“Irving's design is original, eye-catching and modern, and the QEP committee loved how it looks like an app, which fits our slogan, ‘Reading: The App for Life,’” Haven said.
Irving, a student with the college since 2009, plans to either earn his associates degree at Brookhaven College or transfer to the University of North Texas to earn his bachelor’s.
