New school selects ACU graphic design student’s logo

Posted January 15, 2013

The Academy of Technology, Engineering, Math and Science (ATEMS), a new high school joining the Abilene Independent School District, has selected a design by ACU student David Singer from Pflugerville, Texas, for its new logo.

ATEMS collaborated with graphic design students from ACU, Hardin-Simmons and Texas State Technical College to create its new logo. Students at ATEMS chose several options for a mascot, and the graphic design students created logos based on the mascot of their choice. Singer says he chose the phoenix because of its mythological history of rising from the ashes, conveying rebirth and self-improvement.

“Our professors are always looking for chances for us to gain real-world experience and to learn what it's like to work with a client,” says Singer. “It was an honor to have created the design they chose. We create so much work that only gets recognized in class by professors and fellow students. Any time our work is recognized or accepted outside the class setting, it's truly a great experience.”
