Columbus College of Art & Design teamed with the Columbus Partnership for a second year on a contest to create the image for the holiday card that the CEOs group sends to its business partners.
Advertising & Graphic Design senior Lindsay Dale’s winning design features the word “Columbus” with a festive ornament decorated with a portion of the city’s skyline standing in for the letter “O.”
Dale wanted to convey a simple message with her design. “We have such a great artistic community and a lot of emerging artists and businesses,” Dale said. “I think the card should convey how unique Columbus is.”
This recognition reaffirms Dale’s decision to leave her first love of animation behind to instead pursue advertising and graphic design. “It is nice to be recognized for my work after just getting into my major this semester and being a bit behind in my classes,” Dale said. “I think it’s one of the best things to happen to me this year.”
Dale received a $1,000 cash prize, and the card, which has the artist’s name and contact information printed on it, will be distributed to more than 3,000 clients and friends of the Columbus Partnership.
Jordan Davis, manager of events and development at the Partnership, served with Kevin Conlon, CCAD’s vice president for Academic Affairs, as the contest jury, deliberating over more than 25 entries from CCAD students and alumni.
Dale lives in Columbus, OH, and attended Lincoln High School; Lim is from Vancouver, Canada, and attended Semiahmoo Secondary School; and Fischer is from Lawrence, KS, and attended Lawrence High School.
