New York company chooses Weston student

A TOP Weston College graphic design student was chosen by a New York-based property company to create a new logo, and scooped a cash prize for his efforts.

George Butter, who is studying for a foundation diploma in art and design, decided he wanted to do a graphic design competition for his final major project.

George, aged 19, found a website which gives designers the chance to win contracts from businesses across the United States by working to briefs and uploading designs. The winner then gets the commission and a fee.

George said: “The brief was quite specific. They wanted to show direction and navigation into a brighter future, so I came up with a design based on a compass.

“There were six or seven other designers in the running and in total 102 designs were submitted.”

The logo is now being used on the company’s website, as well as on all its promotional material.
