Heartfelt Images “the contest” started in 2001 and for 11 years it was “logo-less”. In 2011 in addition to the actual contest were asked to contribute ideas for a logo.
I asked the students to conceive of a logo that would convey the essence of the contest: “cardiac” art by medical and dental students at UBC.
The winner was a joint production by Jimmy Huang from the Kelowna campus and Michiko Maruyama from the Prince George campus. The original pencil on paper sketch was conceived of by Jimmy.
Michiko took that image, added some text, vectorized it and added colour and voila! I am thrilled with the result and proudly launch our new Heartfelt Images Logo!!!
