A panel of judges from the Wester Hailes Community Council met today at Wester Hailes Library to choose the winning entry for their logo competition.
The competition was open to all high school kids and young adults up to third year to enter possible designs for the group’s new logo, with entries submitted by pupils from WHEC.
The winning entry, pictured above, was designed by Kelsey Evans. Kelsey will receive a £50 voucher for the store of her choice. Explaining her design Kelsey added:
Before I started to design my logo for Wester Hailes Community Council I made a mood board. In my mood board I put different logos from different companies and brands for inspiration.
In my logo there is a tree with hands coming off it like leaves. the tree represents the environment/nature. The hands represent the community working together as one.
The red and green colours used are contrasting which means they stand out and are eye-catching.
My logo works well because the environment and community are together which shows they are a good working team. This is successful because of the hidden message in the sign.
The Wester Hailes Community Council would like to thank all the pupils who entered the competition. All the designs were really good and it was hard picking the winning entry.
