Then, this happened.
Instead, the word came out late last week that designs entered by Nathan E. Quinn, a graphics specialist at the Defense Media Activity, were selected as the best out of dozens of proposals.
“The main point I was trying to convey with the design is that ‘our past guides our future,'” Quinn told NHHC community outreach officials in a news release announcing his selection. His work appears at right.
Honorable mention went to designs submitted by Peter Thielen Jr.
As reported previously, nobody got rich: The contest came with no cash prizes or anything beyond a certificate of appreciation. The winner won’t even get to see his logo on NHHC letterhead — instead, both designs will be used to influence the new NHHC imagery that will be part of a commandwide rebranding effort in the coming months.
