The winner of Cumbrian logo competition has been crowned.
A logo design competition run by the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership (CLEP) has crowned the successful winner.
The competition follows a challenge put up for the Cumbria’s Year 9s in order to put their creative talents to good use and come up with a colourful ‘Our Future’ campaign logo, to be used by the CLEP’s careers hub service.
However, it recorded over 150 entries which were judged by Marick Communications, a graphic design agency that set the brief.

His design features the blues and greens of the Cumbrian flag inside the shape of the county boundary.

Meanwhile, Jo Lappin, chief executive of CLEP, who selected the final winner from a shortlist of five, said: “The artwork submitted was eye-catching, imaginative, and responded to the design brief perfectly, it was very hard to choose a winner.

“All of the young people that took part deserve our congratulations for their excellent work, particularly Jacob, whose design will be used across the campaign.
“It’s really important that our young people are provided with the opportunity to develop the skills and talents that they will need in the world of work and that they get a real sense of the diverse, creative career paths on offer in Cumbria.”
With many youngsters missing out on work experience due to Covid, the focus has been on creating tasks that give young people a taste of the world of work.
The competition aimed to recreate the scenario of being a professional designer, working to a creative brief set by a client.
CLEP’s careers hub works with 52 schools and colleges helping and supporting them to showcase the career opportunities available in Cumbria, preparing pupils to make informed choices about their next best steps.
