Ash Creek Arts Center Logo and Business Card
Students designed logos to establish an identity for the new Ash Creek Arts Center, emerging to serve the cities of Monmouth and Independence (Oregon). On February 27, 2014, members of the Ash Creek Arts Center, the Western Oregon University community, and the public gathered to view an exhibit of these graphic design students’ logo solutions, and to help select the new ACAC identity. The graphic design students involved in this project have conducted research on identity design, on the region, and on arts organizations, explored a multitude of concepts, and ultimately executed a logo and business card to best represent the new Ash Creek Arts Center.
This logo is for a community art center based in the Independence/Monmouth area. It is designed to have a warm, friendly, yet clean feel. The merging of the initials “ac” represents the two cities coming together to create and promote a larger art community. Dark orange is attention getting, energetic and warm used to help attract a wide demographic.
