Library close to selecting new logo
Morinville – Library patrons have narrowed a field of 11 logo entries down to a selection of five finalists, all of whom will play a role in the Morinville Community Library’s final logo design expected to be unveiled soon.
The logo contest was held over the summer to find a new image to represent the facility and the fact the Morinville Community Library is more than just books these days.
Patron-selected finalists were Alexix Ebert, Thomas Nordin, Jodi Pennock, and Colette Bachand. Bachand had two of her entries selected in the final choices.
Those finalists’ creations will be passed on to a graphic designer to make each into a final ready to use logo. “The five that were chosen by the public will be taken to a graphic artist to come up with a combination of the ideas,” said Morinville Community Library Manager Isabelle Cramp. “The board liked a lot of the ideas that were represented in those five top ones, so the board thought combining all the ideas into one logo would be the best portrayal of what the library represents today.”
Cramp said the finalist design that received the most votes was a tree concept by Jodi Pennock. She will receive the $100 Visa Gift Card prize offered in the contest.
All five finalists’ logos will be used on a series of bookmarks to be used by the Morinville Community Library. “The top five will be made into book marks so we can let everyone know that we really liked those five top ones,” Cramp said. “By using them as book marks we will be able to recognize the talent of those participants.”
Cramp anticipates the finished logo to be completed from the five concepts within a month.
