Glendale lady creates brand for Perry County Wholesome Meals Undertaking | Native information
Nikki Enlow, a Glendale-based graduate of Central Hardin High School, uses her talent as a graphic design student at Hazard Community and Technical College to support a mission for access to healthy food through a University of Louisville project.
“The Healthiest Cities and Counties Challenge: The Perry County Project is designed not only to help Perry Countians, but also to serve as role models for other communities in the US to help them improve access to local food,” said one Press release.
Creating the graphics used for the project was part of Enlow’s commitment. As a student in Professor Wendy Davidson’s Visual Communication: Multimedia class, Enlow designed a banner for the Facebook page, a sticker with a QR code, and a modified logo design to be printed on masks.
The publication said that their inspiration for the logo came from two main sources: Perry County itself and the goals of the project.
“For example, the brightly colored leaves on the tree represent the diversity of Perry County’s people as well as the different forms of food and food aid,” Enlow said in the news release.
She said the text “Perry County” is placed at the base of the tree and serves as the “root” because the initiative is rooted in the community.
“Nikki makes such amazing designs that I always look forward to seeing their work. Nikki puts so much thought and thought into each design that each work is unique and special. I’m especially proud of your work on this project, ”Davidson said in the press release.
Dr. Frances Hardin-Fanning, RN, at the University of Louisville, leads the project using Enlow’s work. The university coordinates the Perry County Project and is sponsored by the Aetna Foundation, the American Public Health Association, and the National Association of Counties.
Hardin-Fanning said the goal of this project is to help people in Perry County eat healthier.
“We recognize many of the barriers to eating healthy in rural areas and are working in partnership with the community to remove those barriers,” she said.
Enlow said in the press release that she was considering working as a graphic designer for a nonprofit organization or possibly creating accessible visual communications for companies.
“I don’t know any details at the moment. I just know that I want to have a positive impact on people’s lives, ”she said.
She plans to graduate this month with a major in visual communication: multimedia.
