Trustees’ logo decision takes work from locals
To the Editor,
Re: Logo designed to represent renewal, Jan. 31.
Are there not enough graphic design people in Nanaimo to produce a logo for the school district?
There appear to be hundreds of students doing this kind of work.
Nanaimo citizens just went through a ‘blow up’ with a city senior bureaucrat being let go/quitting for outsourcing web work to a Toronto firm.
Why did we pay $24,000 to a Vancouver firm? Have a contest for local kids or businesses.
In viewing Ion’s website, I see no reference to a Nanaimo graphics team.
At the very least the school district owes a letter of apology to every graphic design business in Nanaimo and Ladysmith. Those people work here, try to support families and pay ever increasing amounts of taxes.
Shame on the trustees. Someone should be fired.
