Gary Anderson, age 23, Designed the Recycling Logo for a Contest in 1970
Now this is what you call a timeless logo design…
People get up in arms about the amount of design contests nowadays, but bear in mind: they’ve been around for a long long long time, probably longer than you’ve been alive.
I would myself not be born for another 2 years: 9th January, 1972 And yet now, at the age of 45, I can proudly say I have amassed over 25 years experience in commercial print and design. Time flies…
Imagine being Gary Anderson, at the beginning of his professional life, winning this particular contest, and having that pretty much set you up in your career for the rest of your life.
