Caribbean Met­als Cel­e­brates with Win­ners of School Logo Com­pe­ti­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

For mar­ket­ing agen­cies and graphic artists, the art or skill of designing a logo to rep­re­sent an or­ga­ni­za­tion can of­ten pose a se­ri­ous chal­lenge but, if done right, it can also be quite re­ward­ing. On March 9th Jan­nick Paul of St. Mary’s Col­lege got to learn that first hand af­ter emerg­ing vic­to­ri­ous in the Caribbean Met­als school logo de­sign com­pe­ti­tion which took place in Oc­to­ber last year. The com­pe­ti­tion was held in cel­e­bra­tion of Caribbean Met­als’ 25th an­niver­sary and drew the at­ten­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion of some of the is­land’s top sec­ondary schools.

Ac­cord­ing to the ba­sic rules, each par­tic­i­pat­ing sec­ondary school was given two weeks to come up with a logo that cap­tured the true essence of the com­pany in light of its 25th year an­niver­sary. “We were very im­pressed with the sub­mis­sions from the var­i­ous schools,” says Sales and Mar­ket­ing Manager of Caribbean Met­als Ltd, Shenaz Nar­cisse. “This com­pe­ti­tion was truly a tes­ta­ment to the level of tal­ent and po­ten­tial we have among the youth to­day es­pe­cially when it comes to the field of Art.”

At a spe­cial cer­e­mony held on school grounds, St. Mary’s Col­lege was pre­sented with a lap­top as the over­all win­ner of the logo de­sign com­pe­ti­tion. Caribbean Met­als would later add a bonus prize of a Galaxy Tab 4 for the young and tal­ented Jan­nick Paul. His ex­pla­na­tion for the logo read: “My logo por­trays the peo­ple of St. Lu­cia be­ing cov­ered by Caribbean Met­als for twenty-five years. This is shown by the three fig­ures in the colors of the flag un­der a roof. Also the blue arch un­der the fig­ures rep­re­sents a union or bond among the peo­ple.”

Founder of Acid Creationz and Art teacher at the school, Ted San­di­ford was also present at the cer­e­mony and had this to sa : “We’re ex­tremely proud of Jan­nick for the qual­ity of work he was able to pro­duce. I know he put in a lot of time af­ter school and at home work­ing on that logo and I am just re­ally happy that it paid off.”
