A graphic design and illustration student at the Career and Technical Education Center created the official look for Frisco ISD’s newest high school.
Memorial High School, the District’s 10th, opens in August. It will serve students in grades 9-11 who previously attended Heritage, Lone Star and Wakeland high schools, or Maus, Staley and Trent middle schools.
School colors are black and gold. Future students chose the mascot for Memorial, the Warriors, this spring.
When it came to designing a logo for the school, Principal Jennifer Redden turned to graphic design and illustration students at the CTE Center for ideas and inspiration.
Teacher Sandra Gillmore gave the assignment to her students. Sixty students submitted designs for the official logo, with the winning look created by Devon Bright, a junior at Liberty High School.
Bright’s design will appear everywhere from T-shirts to the floor of the school gym.
“I didn’t think it would stand out that much, but I’m glad it did,” Bright said. “It’s weird to think about how far it will go.”
Bright submitted three designs with a similar theme. The official logo features the letter M, with a base slightly modified from the original design, and the word Warriors cutting through the middle.
“I couldn’t find a font that worked with what I pictured in my head, so I created my own,” Bright explained.
Redden and Campus Secretary Barbara Marr surprised Bright and her classmates with news of the winning design as the 2017-18 school year came to a close.
Look for Bright’s design next school year and as Memorial prepares to open its doors!
