Last Fall we launched this new, improved version of our website, but something was still missing, a logo! The Council never had a true logo, just our name in a green box. Speaking of our name, the Sandy River Basin Watershed Council is a bit of a mouthful, and some might say redundant. That is why we decided that the “basin” would be silent from now on, and our name has been officially changed to The Sandy River Watershed Council (SRWC).
So how did we get our new logo?
Since we have many upcoming projects at Mt. Hood Community College we have been seeking out ways to connect with the students, faculty, and staff on campus. Working with the Integrated Media Department has lead to one of our most engaging and productive partnerships so far.
Our new logo came from local Graphic Designer, and Integrated Media student, Prisma Flores. Prisma and her classmates took on the SRWC as a client during their Fall Term 2017 Branding Class. We received many impressive logo designs from the students, however, Prisma’s ability to incorporate everything we wanted to and tell a compelling story while doing so made her design a clear winner.
A continuing partnership:
Our partnership with the Integrated Media Department continued on into the spring term. A team of students helped us create a series of signs for this summers Salmon Safe parking lot retrofit project. The team of student graphic designers includes: Nicole Meade, Vitaliy Artemenko, Steven Butler, Ryan Jones, and Taylor Page.
All of these talented students have helped us create a new look that reflects the SRWC’s mission and vision. We are so grateful for our partnership with the Integrated Media Department, and hope it will continue into the future.
