A year ago, when Public Affairs intern Sherry Xiao was asked to design a logo for the 2016 Presidential Debate at Washington University in St. Louis, she was more than a little surprised. She was thankful for the opportunity, however, and she did her research to design a simple but impactful logo.
When Sherry returned to WashU this fall, she was amazed to see her design all across campus on posters, lamp post banners, and building signs – not to mention online, in the news, and on debate promotional items. “I’m really impressed by the work of others in creatively adapting the logo from the fundamental starting block I made. I appreciate seeing it in action; it’s a really empowering thing,” she says.
