Mixon Wins for Sweet Logo

January 14th, 2011 Comments Off on Mixon Wins for Sweet Logo

Professor Jamie Mixon was among the ten winners of the 2011 HOW Logo Design Awards, which recognizes “some of the best and most clever logos.” She won for her design work for a Starkville business, Peace, Love & Desserts.

When asked whether he had a favorite work, the judge, von Glitschka, singled out Mixon for praise: “The hand drawn organic quality of this mark is honest and authentic. It also translates to their print collateral and across a wide range of marketing venues. Makes me want to scarf a cupcake.”

January 5th, 2011 Comments Off on How Digs Prudhomme

“Mississippi State grads have realized that we dig their portfolios,” writes HOW Magazine. To prove their point, HOW has included Jonathan Prudhomme’s website in its prestigious list of “Top 10 Sites for Designers”  (January 2011 issue). Each month, HOW picks 10 inspirational websites per month from around the world: this is the fourth time in four months that the magazine has highlighted a site belonging to an MSU Graphic Design student.

HOW compliments Jonathan for his  “funky illustration and hand drawn type.”

You can read the story in HOW or just visit Jonathan’s website.
