Presenting the New COSCBWI Logo!

A few months ago, the COSCBWI Regional Advisor asked if I'd design a new logo for our group!  After a lot of designing and planning, I'm very happy to share the final product with you.
This is the first time I've ever been asked to do something like this, and it was a lot of fun!  I had a few criteria to follow, including:
-Keep it simple
-Incorporate a kite--the symbol of National SCBWI
-Make it Ohio-oriented
After a lot of sketching and consideration of Ohio's state symbols, I decided to focus on a flying cardinal.  Since our state flag is a fun pennant shape, I thought it would make an ideal kite for the bird to fly, too.  I also decided to go with a light, cartoony look to match the theme of Children's writing and illustrating.
I'm happy to say that our Regional Advisor and Assistant Regional Advisor are both pleased with my design!   And I just learned it's already on the National website as seen here.  (How cool is that?)  I am very grateful for this opportunity and look forward to seeing my design on our chapter website and materials soon!
