OXFORD – A Miami University design student was inspired by campus architecture to create the logo for next year’s bicentennial celebration.

Junior Erin Kana of Bay Village came up with the design after the bicentennial steering committee enlisted her art class, ’Identifying Design Systems,’ to submit proposals. Kana’s design was one of six submitted to the committee for a final decision.

’The committee liked the clean lines and beauty of the design,’ said Jerome Conley, steering committee chair and interim assistant dean of libraries, of Kana’s logo in a press release. ’The designer’s depiction of the tower and its upward spire are both inspirational and future looking.’
