In search of a new FIRST California logo, we launched a contest at the end of January to see who could come up with a clean, vibrant and fresh logo design. 134 entries and 24 designers later we have a winner!
As it turns out, many of you know the designer – George Chen! George is a cancer biologist, robotics mentor and graphic designer who is known for being a game announcer and his silly side projects. He has designed identities for numerous non profit organizations and most recently served as senior advertising designer for the UCSD Guardian newspaper. This season, you’ll find him behind the mic at the San Diego, Inland Empire and Lubbock FRC Regionals.
[UPDATE] Shortly after writing this post, we learned that George’s dedication to FIRST was recognized with the Volunteer Award at the FTC Championship Tournament in San Diego today!
If you are looking for a designer, we highly recommend George for his professionalism, reliability, creative insight and skills! You can find him on twitter at @g_chen.
Please feel free to use this logo in your materials while paying close attention to the attached Brand Guidelines.
