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.”

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 hisÂ “funky illustration and hand drawn type.”
