New logo gives Pembroke 21C Community Interest Company its own identity
Design students at Pembrokeshire College have proved that they already have the potential to work in a commercial capacity after designing a logo for another local organisation.
The first year Computers and Design students worked to a brief set by Pembroke 21C Community Interest Company to give them a unique identity as they expand, following the launch of their new Greenhill Farm site. This is the latest in a number of logos that students at the College have created for local companies during the last 12 months.
Jennifer Care, Project Manager for Pembroke 21C Community Interest Company attended the College last week to meet the students and present them with their prizes. Jennifer commented: “This is the first time we have worked with the College and we have been extremely impressed with the quality and originality of the work submitted. We chose to approach the College as working with, and using the skills in, our local community fits with our ethos as a social enterprise. It is also a great chance for students to get involved and work on a real project. There is huge scope for creative individuals within Pembrokeshire and we have been impressed with the level of talent within the College – we hope this will be the start of a long relationship.”
Cara Morris, aged 17 from Goodwick, was thrilled to find out her logo had been picked for use by Pembroke 21C Community Interest Company. Following the official presentation Cara commented: “Logo design has been my favourite part of the course so far. I haven’t decided yet which career path I want to follow but it will definitely be something to do with design and being able to work on real life projects is helping me to build a portfolio which I can take to employers or university.”
Nine students from the College submitted a total of 17 different logo ideas with eight being shortlisted. Design lecturer at the College, Denys Bassett-Jones added: “The students jumped at the chance to work on this live brief which will see their logo being used on the Pembroke 21C Community Interest Company website as well as in newsletters and on promotional materials. This represented a fantastic opportunity to get involved with a really worthwhile project.”
