I feel a bit stupid now. After reviewing my last post about my logo, I decided to check out RIT’s website since I had mentioned it there. The first thing I noticed on their site is that my old design professor, R. Roger Remington was just inducted into the Art Director’s Hall of Fame. Apparently that is the Graphic Design equivalent of the Nobel prize.
The reason I mention this (other than out of reverence for my former instructor) is because the class that I first doodled my logo (get your mind out of the gutter) was a class taught by Remington. It was an information design class. The class was broken into studio sessions and lecture sessions. The class where I first “conceptualized” the logo was one of the lecture sessions.
Don’t get me wrong. Roger Remington is an excellent teacher. I was probably just zoning out that day. By no means do I mean any disrespect to him. Just to give you an idea, Remington joins an elite group of designers with his recent induction, including the likes of Walt Disney, Andy Warhol, Saul Bass and Paul Rand. How cool is it that one of my teachers is now grouped with those dudes?!
