Centennial year launches with winning logo design

J-School Centennial LogoThe School of Journalism is pleased to announce the coming of its centennial year, and with it a new logo. The centennial logo was designed by recent graduate Carli Krueger and features Main Hall, Mount Sentinel and tents representing the 1914 founding of the J-School in surplus tents pitched on the oval.  

While in school at the University of Montana, Krueger was on the design staff at the Montana Kaimin and also worked with the Montana Journalism Review setting a tone for the design elements of the magazine. She said she got an “infinite amount of experience just doing Friday Kaimins.

Shortly after graduation in May 2013, Krueger accepted a position as a design trainee at the Orange County Register in Santa Ana, Calif. There she works the community desk, where she is in charge of the layout of a weekly paper and a few daily papers. Her favorite part of the job is taking important information and making it visually appealing.

Krueger will continue to work at the Orange County Register as an apprentice in the design department. Krueger has some advice for students soon to enter the workforce. “You just have to work like you’re getting paid a million bucks to do what you’re doing because if you work that hard, they’re going to see that,” she said. “It might not be a huge paper or TV station, but it’s going to pay off somewhere.”
