Lawry wins logo design contest

St. Michael Catholic Church in Marquette recently held a new logo design contest. The winner is local artist Joe Lawry. He is pictured above receiving his $100 VISA card with St. Michael’s pastor, Father Greg Heikkala. Art is a hobby Lawry has enjoyed his whole life. It is a pastime which his parents encouraged. He has been drawing since he first picked up a pencil, and his earliest experience with computer art was using Microsoft Paint on Windows 95. From there, he’s progressed to Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Cinema 4D. Lawry is a Northern Michigan University student and a lifelong member of Saint Michael Catholic parish in Marquette. At NMU, he is studying art and design.
