Library Design Contest Winner!

Posted on April 18th, 2011 by

We are honored and excited to unveil our new library design. Congratulations to Abby Huff, our creative contest winner!

Here’s an excerpt from a Q&A with Abby:

Why did you decide to enter the contest?

When I first heard about the contest, I thought it would be a fun opportunity. I’m interested in advertisements and how they work. For me, having the chance to create a design is really exciting. I’ve designed a few logos before for various groups, and have enjoyed the process. So I thought it would be good to put my interests and talents to use for Gustavus and the library.

What was your inspiration?

I wanted to make something that symbolized the learning that takes place through the library. That was my main goal. The tree is used a lot to symbolize growth and knowledge and is also visually elegant, so it worked well. Having the tree sort of growing out of the book shows the library as a cultivator of knowledge, or a foundation that nurtures and supports a learning that continues to grow.
