It’s official, my design plus Anil Tortop’s brilliant execution [the ‘Q’ as the wave was a stroke of genius] = the new SCBWI Blog Logo.
We both had a ball playing with ideas.
I did some amateurish sketches of my original idea and then a clipart mockup. Anil took it from there and evolved her final brilliant image:
Jennifer Poulter: My design symbolises the joyous spirit of creativity! The pelican represents authors and illustrators catching ideas, surfing waves of inspiration. It also symbolises Queensland with its long, long coastline and the pelican, one of our most prolific water-birds, which is found on the coast and on inland lakes. Water symbolises growth, nourishing, renewal – a great symbol for the dissemination of knowledge and the generation of ideas, the stimulation of imagination. It also captures the joy of playing in water, which all children love whether it is in the bath on the beach, river or lakeside, in the pool or under the hose!
Anil executed the design and – a stroke of genius – incorporated the Q for Queensland in the wave!
