In early November, MaryAnn Newton, President of the West Monroe/West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce contacted Brian Fassett, associate professor of art at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, with a request for student involvement in the new logo design for the chamber. From this request a student logo design competition was created with a $250 prize for the winning entry.
Sixteen Art 405 advanced graphic design students from the Division of Art submitted over 140 designs to the West Monroe/West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce.
