Final Four - Rhody logo contest posted on 05/07/2018

A 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, Will Frank of the Clackamas County Arts Alliance and local artist Sue Allen. The group met on Monday, April 23 to narrow down a field of six that had been selected out of 45 initial logo entries. 

“We’ve 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.  

The 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.  

“They’re 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.  

The winning entry will win a prize package that will include: $500, golf and a cart for two at The Resort At The Mountain, two lift certificates at Skibowl, a gift certificate to Skyway Bar & Grill and cross-country ski rental from Otto's Ski Shop in Sandy.
