Senior Martina Parguian shows off her newly designed logo in the front office.

Graphic design student Martina Parguian is the shining star behind West Shore’s new logo, which features an elaborate shield design with the “Excellence Achieved” slogan.

Produced in digital arts class, after three to five hours of work in the past few weeks, she was able to develop a logo as requested by administration, which is now displayed in the form of a large banner. Parguian already has several award-winning pieces, so she was a top candidate for the job.

“I usually mess around with it, with an idea in mind,” Parguian said.

Teacher Jim Finch has high praise for many of Parguian’s works.

“I’m always impressed with the quality of art Martina gives me. She never gives me cheese,” Finch said.

The logo is expected to represent West Shore in job fairs.
