The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has officially tallied up the votes for the 2016 Light The Night t-shirt contest submissions, and the winning design comes from 37-year-old Joshua Redmond of Centerville, Ohio.
A graduate of Ohio University’s School of Fine Art, Redmond earned his degree in graphic design and printmaking and has been working professionally in the industry for over a decade.
For the past two years, he’s been mastering his hand-lettering techniques, which he used to design the winning logo. When asked about the creative process behind his t-shirt design, Redmond said, “The night sky was the real inspiration behind the piece."
Several of Redmond’s co-workers at Naked Lime – a marketing consulting firm in Ohio – have had friends and family members directly affected by LLS. In fact, many of the designers there have participated in the Light The Night t-shirt contest before.
When Redmond learned he was the 2016 winner, he was excited to be part of the cause.
“I'm a huge believer that with enough people getting behind a cause, a difference can truly be made. So anytime that I can use my God-given talents to help out an organization like LLS, I'm am happy to do so.”
