We’re so proud of our newest recruit, designer Leticia Campoy Vega, who has been selected as one of the nine winners of the Creative Commons: Don’t Panic Letterheadz Design Competition here in Bristol.
As part of her entry for the competition, Leticia needed to submit some examples of her previous design work – which clearly struck a chord with the judges, who chose her to be the designer for the letter ‘V’ in the finished design of the Creative Commons logo. The final artwork will be displayed all around the edge of the Creative Common (a large pop-up arts space in Bristol) for several months.
Leticia explains the thinking behind her design for the letter ‘V’, which gave her the opportunity to combine her Spanish background with her new home in Bristol: “I always need a story behind the design. ‘V for Veil’ is how I named my design, which was based on the traditional black Spanish lace that women would wear on their heads during the Easter celebrations.”
Leticia has only been with Minuteman Press Bristol for a short time (having joined us in January 2013), so she says becoming a winner in this citywide competition has made her feel very welcome.
She adds: “It’s well known that there are very talented artists in Bristol and the city loves design, so being chosen alongside some great Bristolian artists – such as Inkie, Cheba, Ged Palmer, 45RPM and Colourym – made me very happy. As a graphic designer, I want people to enjoy my work.”
