Waimea High School’s advanced graphics class designed and produced a new sign for the Waimea Public Library.
The student who primarily came up with the concept was Waimea High School Class of 2018 valedictorian Joshua Ochua.
“I’m thrilled with how well it turned out,” said Michelle Young, Waimea Public Library branch manager. “He is rightfully proud of his work, and I’d love to give him some public credit for it.”
Young collaborated with Waimea High School graphics teacher, John Altomare, earlier this semester to have his students design a new sign for the library.
“I thought that having local students work on it would be meaningful,” Young said.
Altomare assigned the project to his advanced graphics class. Specifications for the design included clear visible text with the library’s name, colors that complement the building, and an image related to the library’s mission of promoting reading and learning, or to Waimea Town.
“They did an awesome job, and I’m grateful for the professional-level work they did with the guidance of Mr. Altomare,” Young said.
