Public relations student Hannah Palmer’s design has been selected as the winning logo that will represent the face of the inaugural Crisis and Communication Think Tank workshop event this April. Palmer’s winning design was a product of a friendly competition in Kirsten Strausbaugh-Hutchinson’s advanced graphic communications class.
“I wanted to create a logo for CCTT that emphasizes their focus, crisis, and gives them their own identity, while still playing up the recognizable UGA branding style,” said Palmer.
On Thursday, April 19, 2018 at Grady College, the inaugural Crisis Communication Think Tank (CCTT), co-sponsored by the C. Richard Yarbrough Professorship in Crisis Communication Leadership and the Center for Health and Risk Communication at UGA will commence. The CCTT aims to build collaborations that advance crisis communication science and practice through dialogue on emerging crisis topics and co-creation of evidence-based advice for crisis research and practice.
Hannah Leigh Palmer is a junior at UGA double majoring in public relations and interior design. She has been interested in graphic design since before UGA. Hannah Leigh is looking to pursue a career in branding and interior design and will graduate as a fifth-year senior in 2020.CCTT Mission Statement
