This project was announced yesterday (1231) and within hours I received the first two submissions. I’m a lucky teacher to have such amazing students.
Kudos: Freshman Kiera H has fallen in love with the Pen Tool and is being compensated by clients. Details in Week 15 blog post (coming soon).
I realize that some of you have yet to reach the logo project but it’s time to open this year’s gallery.
Kudos: Fadi and I have talked about this design. We’re both pretty sure it exists elsewhere as the idea is too brilliantly simple to have escaped the design community but Fadi did work out the interlocking Gs on his own. It led to a worthwhile discussion of respecting intellectual property.

Side Note: I’ll never forget how crestfallen I was (about 30 years ago) when I discovered why the gallery owners exclaimed that my work reminded them of Agam and Vasarely. They took a piece on consignment but I had mixed feelings as I left. A quick visit to the library (pre-Internet days) revealed that Yaacov Agam and Victor Vasarely had already broken and explored many of the ideas I had thought were my own. (This happened long before I returned to college to acquire my BFA. Live and learn.)
