Back in August 2020 while the world was upside down—in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, I received an e-mail from Emily Potts—the writing partner of the LogoLounge 12 book—asking me to respond to six questions. “We’d like to include a little write-up about your program since so many of your students’ work is included in this edition.” Emily wrote. After reading her e-mail several times—still in shock—I began to respond.
It was not until now that I got to see the printed version of LogoLounge 12 for the first time. Although I knew my students, my friend Juan at Legacy79, and I got some work published; I totally forgot about the write-up Emily Potts and Bill Gardner wanted to include in this publication.
For years, LogoLounge has been a great source for inspiration and aspiration. In 2010 while studying my MFA, I got my first logo published in LogoLounge and I still remember the joy and excitement of seeing my work published for the first time in a leading design publication.
Ten years later, the joy is a little bit different; now, I get the opportunity to share the same excitement with my students. I am very thankful to LogoLounge for this great opportunity and of course to my students for all their dedication, hard work, and perseverance. Congratulations ComDes Bobcats for this awesome showcase!
