In case you missed the announcement, the theme of this year’s show is Redemption. Per Merriam-Webster, redemption is the act of making something better or more acceptable; the act of exchanging something for money, an award, etc,; or in reference to theology, the act of being saved from sin or evil. Artwork submitted for the 2015 show should revolve around the artist’s interpretation of redemption.

For further inspiration in regards to redemption, listen to Eric Reed’s lesson on redemption from our November meeting here.

Submissions should be emailed to curator2015@imagohouston.org. Feel free to join the Facebook group at this link for helpful hints and info about the show if you plan to submit. Anyone needing critique assistance can post in the Facebook group, and if there are any questions about submission, please direct them to the curator2015 email address above.

6 Characteristics of Great Logo Design

Being fans of logos like we are here at FYC, we wanted to do a post that served as a bit of a heads-up to the n00bs and a bit of an important reminder for those of us who have been in the game for a few. Knowing that it never hurts to reiterate the basics from time to time, we derived a look at logos that acts to identify some of the more crucial characteristics that take your logo design to the next level of greatness. Like the degrees of separation, we went with the number six when compiling our list of logo must haves, finding these six to play the most pivotal roles in the construction of a great logo.
