January 20, 2011
The winners of the 125th Anniversary Logo contest have been chosen. Bill Collins of Golden Valley won the adult category (design below), and Oriana Freeman, a student at Robbinsdale Middle School, won the student category.
Nine entries were received from adults and students living, working, or going to school in Golden Valley. On Jan 10, a panel of graphic artists and the chair of the 125th Anniversary Planning Team evaluated the entries and selected one adult and one student entry.
Judges included Todd Paulson of Knock; Craig Farmer from Perpich Center for Arts Education; Nancy Harris, an independent graphic designer from Golden Valley; City graphic designer Kristi Bucher; and Marshall Tanick, chair of the planning team. The logos will be used on written and electronic materials and to brand events what will have a 125th anniversary component to them.
The Golden Valley Historical Society and Hennepin County Library-Golden Valley will be using the logo on upcoming events. The winners will receive their prizes at the Jan 27 meeting of the 125th Anniversary Planning Team.
