Graphic Design Team’s Logo Honored by HOW Magazine
A Coastal Carolina University’s Graphic Design Professor and Graduate have teamed up to design a winning logo. Scott Mann, Assistant Professor in Graphic Design, and Coastal Graduate, Alecia Lewis, have collaborated to design a logo for Studio 910 that has gathered honors from two prestigious publications. The Studio 910 logo was selected as one of the Top 10 logos in HOW Magazine’s “Fourth Annual Logo Design Awards”. It also was the winner of HOW Magazine’s “Reader’s Choice” for Best Logo Design and will be featured in the “Behind the Design” section of an upcoming issue of HOW Magazine.

Studio 910 was proposed as an experiential learning facility for the visual arts. Envisioned as an initiative by Coastal Carolina University for its students to gain first-hand, real-world experience within a learning environment. The Studio 910logo was developed to reflect the multi-faceted space comprised of a lighting studio, a pre-professional graphic design / photography studio and an exhibition space located within the community. The challenge wasto develop an identity that would communicate the design criteria of clever, dynamic, and contemporary without compromising the integrity of the work that was being developed within the facility
 “The facility was named after its location. So, we developed a logotype that would focus on that aspect as well as speak to the learning initiative and the various talents that would occupy the space,” explains Professor Mann.

In addition to praise from HOW Magazine, The Studio 910 logo has been selected as a winner in the “2012 American Graphic Design Awards”, and will be published in the American Graphic Awards Design Annual.
