Bournemouth Student Designs Navitus Bay Logo

A Bournemouth student has won a competition to design a new logo for the Navitus Bay Wind Park, which will be built off the Dorset coast.

The Navitus Bay competition has been won by 18 year old Danni Cain from New Milton. Danni attends the Arts University College.

It's after the developers asked for local teenagers to help design a visual identity for the Project, which will be located off the coasts of Dorset and Hampshire, and to the West of the Isle of Wight.

The logo submitted by Danni, a budding graphic designer, was the clear winner in the eyes of the judges, who thought that her entry was not only highly creative, but also reflected the brief submitted to entrants beforehand.

The new logo will not only be the visual identity of Navitus Bay throughout the development period and beyond, but Danni will also receive £500 spending money, and can add the design to her portfolio of work for the future.

Danni, who is studying toward a Graphic Design Foundation course at the College, said:

"I'm delighted that my design has been chosen as the new logo for Navitus Bay. I love the look of wind farms and actually based my design on the shape and movement of the turbines."

"Currently I'm doing a project on my course designing a poster to promote the benefits of wind farms, which is what led me to the Navitus Bay website, and why I entered the competition. I firmly believe in renewable energy and feel that wind farms can be very beneficial to the region and the UK."

Chris Sherrington, Project Director, said:

"The whole team was unanimous in selecting Danni's design as the winning logo and we were very impressed with the creativity and thought given to it. The new logo is another important milestone in the lifetime of the project and we look forward to it being used throughout the development period and beyond."

The new logo marks the start of the 50/50 joint venture partnership between Eneco and EDF Energy on the proposed Navitus Bay Wind Park, which was announced last Thursday.
