See Burritt Library’s new Logo!!

The Elihu Burritt Library had a logo contest in the Spring of 2014. The library logo had to be recognizable across campus and to our outside audience. We wanted it to reflect the mission, culture and values of our library and the university.
What sets apart a great logo from a not so great one has to do with perception. It is the moment between looking at the logo and getting the message it conveys.

We received a variety of creative submissions. The library marketing committee, in cooperation with the CCSU Marketing and Communication department, selected a logo by Steven Janiga. Steven is majoring in Graphic Design and currently working at the CCSU Student Center doing Graphics and Web designs.

The new logo will be used online, in print, on publications and in displays. The winning logo represents all the qualities we were looking for.
Thank you to all participants and thank you Steven!
