Honors College Student Designs Winning Logo
What makes a great logo? Just ask MDC Honors College graduate Gian Lombardi, who was recently named the winner of the Florida Collegiate Honors Council’s (FCHC) Logo Contest. Lombardi’s design – a gold armor plate bearing the organization’s full name, framed by black wings on each side – beat out dozens of student entries from across the state.
“I knew from the beginning that I wanted it to be both conservative and innovative at the same time,” Lombardi said of his winning design. “I thought of the shield in the background, along with the wings, to be the ‘conservative’ part, while rendering the disparity or asymmetry in lines as the ‘innovative’ part.”
The competition was open to honors students from two- and four-year public and private colleges in Florida. The FCHC Executive Board selected three finalists, then voted on the winners during the recent 2011 FCHC Conference.
For his design, Lombardi received a cash prize and a custom award plate. A recent graduate of The Honors College at MDC in May, Lombardi will be studying visual effects at the renowned Savannah College of Art and Design this fall. He then hopes to work in the film industry when he graduates.
The FCHC is a professional association representing the undergraduate honors programs and colleges in the state. Its mission is to improve the quality of honors programs and provide students with greater opportunities for intercollegiate activities through collaboration with regional and national organizations.
