My whole undergraduate college career is about to end in seven days and a few weeks ago I got the news that I won a Merit award from One Show Young Ones. I got the email and honestly thought it was a joke. When I turned in this design it was so last minute... expedited to NYC and I still felt like it lacked something.
When I was designing the brand identity for Organic by John Patrick I just wanted to keep it simple. I went with what I was used to: one serif and one san serif, simple colors that emulated the organic clothing, and something that would tell the story of John Patrick and his sustainability efforts.
I guess the judges and whomever on that panel liked it and I am so excited to accept this merit award. It gives me a boost in confidence that designing is somewhere that I can be and not to give up on the dream!
