Davis Elen Advertising and Otis Students Create a Spectacular Logo for 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games
Otis' MFA Graphic Design students recently participated in a unique partnership with Los Angeles-based Davis Elen Advertising. The design challenge: to create a spectacular logo for the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games, the world's largest sports and humanitarian event to be held in Los Angeles.
"Davis Elen has a 60-plus-year history in Los Angeles and Otis has a 90-plus year history as the City's first art school. The chance for our two organizations to collaborate was very exciting," said Agency Chairman and CEO Mark Davis. "It also presented a significant challenge. Expectations would be high for a graphic treatment that showcased L.A. at its best. At the same time, here was an opportunity to be part of a much larger, much more meaningful communication."
"When Davis Elen invited Otis students to collaborate on the Special Olympics logo development, we leaped at the opportunity," said Samuel Hoi, President of Otis. "The project provided real-world experience for emerging designers to apply their creativity, skill and vision to serve our city and to a cause as important as the Special Olympics."
The students were mentored by David Moranville, Chief Creative Officer at Davis Elen and noted graffiti artist Stash, the project's artistic director. "Including the Otis students in the creative process was inspiring for our team," said Moranville. "They brought their talent and passion to the project and offered different ideas and experiences which were valuable. Together, we were able to create something powerful and a beautiful representation of the athletes and of Los Angeles."
"The logo's celebratory figure represents the courage, determination and joy of our athletes; placing the iconic image inside the circle represents acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities; and the colors, comprised of colors of flags from 170 countries around the world, represent diversity and the beautiful mosaic of our World Games athletes. We are very proud of the design outcome."
The logo will be displayed prominently throughout Los Angeles and highlights the mission of the 2015 World Games and the global Special Olympics movement: the celebration of people with intellectual disabilities, their achievements, abilities and perseverance.
