In the Feb. 5 Chronicle, the article on School District’s 68 new logo interested me.
The $24,000 is now spent; however, two ideas came to my mind.
Alternatively, the students could have been engaged to come up with a design, perhaps offering a small bursary of perhaps five per cent to 10 per cent as motivation or prize.
Secondly, I know for a fact that $24,000 is not a bad yearly wage for an artist living in this area and that there are many talented ones living in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith area. A request to any one of these artists, I think, could have resulted in an equally good design, consequently supporting the local community as we are all encouraged to do.
