This is going to be a bit of a different post today, but I thought I'd share it anyway. So as you may or may not know, I'm in my final year of secondary school and so far this year has been both the coolest and the most stressful to date. I've gone through the whole palaver of figuring out which universities I want to apply to, writing my personal statement and then actually completing the application process, not to mention just about keeping on top of all the school work which has been coming in floods. But aside from all that business, a bunch of cool stuff has been going on behind the scenes, mostly organised by many wonderful people from my year.
Cool thing number one to actually materialise is this jumper. It's traditional in the final year at my school to have a slogan which is put onto a jumper, and everyone who wants one can choose a different colour. The process for the jumpers started way back in October I believe, when we (by popular vote) decided on 'better watch your bac' as the slogan - the slogan has to incorporate the word 'bac' as the final exams we do make up the European Baccalaureate, which everyone shortens to 'Bac'. Step two was to decide a logo, which was done by a competition where anyone could take the logo and do something creative with it to produce a design. Naturally (because I have rediscovered my love of design this past year or so) I decided to enter and eventually came up with the following:
It was pretty much the simplest thing ever, as all I did was download a font, get an image of the hand with the puppet strings and put it all together in a Word document - but for some reason people liked it and it got chosen!
It's not the biggest of deals, but I was so excited to finally get my jumper the other day - the colour I got the jumper in was 'maroon' (it's a lot less pink than it looks on the photo, but anyway).
As I said, I just thought I'd share this here as it's something that was quite important to me and I love the finished result!
