The Forks Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that its new logo was selected as a winner in the 2023 American Graphic Design Awards, a national competition based in New York that recognizes outstanding work in the creative fields. The logo was designed by Laurel Black Communications + Design.
Sponsored by Graphic Design USA, the American Graphic Design Awards competitions have recognized excellence in graphic design for 60 years. In 2023, less than 10 percent of designs submitted for the annual competition were chosen from a field of approximately 8,000 entries. The winning work was awarded a Certificate of Excellence.
“With the launch of our new website, we knew we needed a refreshed logo and worked with Laurel to develop it,” said Lissy Andros, Chamber Executive Director. “The natural beauty, wildlife, our uniqueness with the rainfall, and the feeling of the wild western PNW, we feel like it was all incorporated to capture our essence.”
Forks Chamber of Commerce, established in the 1930s, advocates for businesses across the West End and the Olympic Peninsula, operates the Visitor Information Center for the City of Forks, and the Forever Twilight in Forks Collection, a gallery of props and costumes from the Twilight Saga movies.
