|Final Four - Rhody logo contest posted on 05/07/2018|
contest to select a logo for the community of Rhododendron is down to a final
four following a meeting by the “Matrix Committee,” comprised of the
Rhododendron Community Planning Organization’s (CPO) Rhody Rising subcommittee,

selected out of 45 initial logo entries.
got four great logos,” said Steve Graeper, Rhododendron CPO president. “I am tickled
at the diversity of the designs.”
The Matrix, a scorecard where committee members assigned points in three
categories for each of the six entries,
was utilized to expand thinking and focus attention beyond a popular vote to
determine the four entries that would
move on to the final selection, to be held at the CPO’s Saturday, May 19
meeting at The Resort at The Mountain, starting at 10:30 a.m. The three
categories covered ease of production (how the design would work for both large
and small-scale uses), cost of reproduction (potential expenses associated with
reproducing the image) and
visual acuity (how the design represents the vision of the Rhododendron
community). A fourth category included
a score reflecting the popular vote by the CPO’s members.
CPO had initially planned to select three entries for the final decision, but a
tie for the third-place logo resulted in
the selection of four designs. The four artists behind the logos, Mark
Schumaker, Cheryl Budd, Laurie Crabb and
Renee Lamoreaux, all of whom hail from the mountain community.
all distinctly different,” Allen said about the final logos. The four designs
will be on display in various locations, including at the Rhododendron Post
Office, through social media and in the Mountain Times prior to the meeting on
May 19. Members of the CPO, comprised of residents, property owners and
business owners within the CPO's boundaries, will determine through a popular
vote which logo is the winner. The winning selection may also go on through
some final changes, such as adjusting colors or adding a notation for the
starting year of the Rhododendron community.

certificate to Skyway Bar & Grill and cross-country ski rental from Otto's
