Open to anyone with a passion for art and design, FIDM’s Facebook Graphic Design Challenge asked designers to create an image that incorporated the official FIDM logo along with original illustrations, photographs, and/or graphics. “It was a huge success, and we received great entries from future FIDM students, current students, and the general public,” said Larry Del Santo, Social Media Marketing Manager at FIDM.
The finalists, Jon E., Angelica V., and Marianna H., customized the FIDM logo using eye-catching patterns, typography, and graphics. The public was then asked to vote for their favorite design for the duration of a week on Facebook via a poll application. After more than 500 votes, Jon’s design was chosen as the winner and is currently featured as the official FIDM Facebook Cover image. The challenge was a partnership with FIDM’s Digital Media Department.
“The winner’s design is now up and featured as our cover photo for the month of June,” added Del Santo. Jon Ezell, who is a current FIDM Graphic Design student at the Orange County campus, is also the co-founder and lead designer of the new apparel line, Adamo Collection. His blue and white creation mimics the look of dye swirling in water.
