Press Release Author: Rebecca Robinson
Press Release Summary: A logo created by Salem area graphic designer Randy Hill has been selected for inclusion in the 5th edition of LogoLounge 5: 2,000 International Identities by Leading Designers.
Press Release Body: LogoLounge books are published annually by Rockport Publishers, a Massachusetts-based company that creates books for art professionals. Over 30,000 individual logos from all over the world are submitted for inclusion in each edition of the books, which usually contain 2,000 individual, original logos. LogoLounge books are known for being cutting-edge and inspirational, and are often used by artists and graphic design professionals looking for ideas.
The logo that will be featured in the upcoming publication represents the Oregon Valley Boys, a Salem area Hank Willams-esque western swing band that Hill plays drums in. The logo Hill created was a collaboration between himself and Von Glitschka, another independent designer based in Salem. Hill says that the logo was designed to look like it represented a band that had been around for decades, when in fact the Oregon Valley Boys have only been in existence for about two years. "It was a team effort between Hill Design Studios and Glitschka Studios. I created the illustration of Mt. Hood that is in the background of the logo and Von Glitschka used his unique talents to give the logo an added retro look with the typeface and general design."
Logos arenEUR(tm)t new for Randy Hill EUR" he has also created logo art for a number of record labels, music festivals, and radio shows. Hill says that creating logos is a special challenge, EURin essence, when you are designing a logo, you are attempting to distill a company's entire image into a single, graphic representation."
In addition to creating logo art, Hill also enjoys painting and creating assemblage pieces, which recently won him local acclaim in a feature article in Salem Monthly alternative magazine (www.willamettelive.com).
