Purdue OWL 20th Anniversary Logo Designs
During the Fall 2013 semester, the Purdue OWL partnered with Mr. Donald Unger's English 309: Computer-Aided Publishing to design possible logos to be used during the Purdue OWL's 20th Anniversary. Design work was completed by groups of students and then presented to Purdue OWL staff. While only one logo could be selected, the Purdue OWL staff wanted to honor the efforts of students involved in this process.
Below are the fruits of their labor:
