About the design:
Every year graduating students reflect on their personal and professional growth—culminating in exhibition at the Annual. This process has been illustrated with a concentric design inspired by the growth rings of a tree.
The custom lettering combines aspects of serifs and geometric sans creating a timeless logomark that expresses the proud history and promising future of the campus and its graduates.
Placing the '17' as an exponential multiplier signifies the power of the Annual as emblematic of graduates’ potential.
Runner Up: Amy Ge and Victoria Zhou
"With the word 'annual' as our inspiration, we created a design that reflected the movement and growth our graduates have gone through in their year's rotation around the sun." – Amy Ge & Victoria Zhou
