FORMER local Shepparton resident and now 2nd year Visual Arts and Design student at the Australian Catholic University in Melbourne, Daniel Bush has been announced as the winner of the Primary Care Connect 2011 Gambler’s Help Youth Creative Design Competition.
20 year old Daniel was awarded for his logo design which cleverly depicts two people, one helping the other up, symbolising the ‘G’ and ‘H’ for Gambler’s Help.
Daniel researched ideas around gambling and due to the constraints surrounding the associated images, he decided to concentrate on the human help aspect of the organisation.
Once the idea was formed, the logo design came about fairly quickly.
Daniel said, “I’m pretty happy with the final product and I’m glad everyone else likes it as well.”
Manager Counselling and Gambler’s Help Counsellor for Primary Care Connect, Kim Scott said, “We were really impressed, assisting people to get a helping hand was exactly what we were trying to capture.”
Daniel’s logo design will feature in the region wide Gambler’s Help campaign over the next 12 months with the potential to be adopted as the permanent logo thereafter.
Along with the recognition of having his logo design adopted, Daniel will also receive a prize of $350 to help him along the way.
