X-Projects: Linda Rochford Announces Campus Residences Competition Winner (Complete)
First Year Multimedia Student Wins Logo Competition.
Before Christmas Linda Rochford of DCU Campus Residents issued the following brief (edited):
“Campus Residences Ltd is a company based on campus specialising in the provision of accommodation and conferences. We have 1000 rooms which we sell during the summer months and are available to individuals, groups and language schools. In addition we also organise conferences on campus including room hire and catering.
Please visit www.summeraccommodation.dcu.ie for more information about our business.
The purpose of the competition is to design a new name and logo for the commercial aspect of Campus Residences Ltd. in Dublin City University.
We are looking for a creative and innovative design which will convey the accommodation and conference aspect of our business. The new name can be included in the logo or can be separate”.
The competition was closed on 31st January 2013, and a winner announced on 1st March. At that stage DCU Campus Residences issued the following statement:
“Campus Residences Ltd are delighted to announce that they have chosen Cian Hogan as the winner of their recent logo competition. It was chosen as it showcased the many aspects of Campus Residences Ltd. The circle/globe suggests that everything is located in the one place and also conveys a sense of unity.
They would like to thank everyone who entered the competition. They were very impressed with the standard and quality of the entries and they liased with the department of Public Affairs and Media Relations to choose a winner”.
On behalf of the School of Communications staff I would also like to congratulate Cian on his fine win, and to wish him every success for the future.
It is a credit to both Cian and the multimedia programme that students can avail of such ‘real world’ production projects while still in college, and I would encourage as many students as possible to consider taking on such projects as the opportunity arises.
Campus Residences will have another digital media competition coming soon.
