A former Long Street Primary School student has designed a new logo for the Environmental Consultation Group which captures the true essence of what ECG is about.
Daley Veart’s design was declared the winner of a competition for school students to create a new-look logo for the group, which acts as a conduit between the community and GFG Alliance’s Whyalla operations regarding environmental issues.
Daley then worked with local design company Tickled Ink to create the finished digital product.
“The leaves represent the environment; the steel beams relate to the group’s work with the steelworks; and Mount Laura in the background symbolises Whyalla,” he said.
ECG Chair Eddie Hughes congratulated Daley on his ‘stunning’ design.
“Our original logo was starting to look a little dated, so we’ve gone for something more modern that reflects today’s environmental focus,” he said.
“Daley’s really captures what the group is about and has a genuine Whyalla flavour which is what we were aiming for.”
Daley received a number of items branded with his new logo to show off his winning design, while his former school also benefits, with $1000 being donated by GFG Alliance to assist with environment‐related initiatives.
Long Street Primary School Principal, Bryan Rotherham, said the money would be put towards a gardening program aimed at encouraging students to grow and eat their own food.
ECG are now looking for more members to join their ranks, with Mr Hughes encouraging residents with a sound knowledge of locla environmental issues and a passion for Whyalla to nominate to be part of the group.
“Our meetings are conducted in a spirit of trust and cooperation, and I can assure any potential member that this will present an opportunity to make a difference to your community,” he said.
