The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority approached me for a trophy to give to the local school that had done the most to protect our reef.
I put together on the computer a couple of mock-ups for them to choose from. The spotty fish and a shark flying out of the water with a palm tree in the background. Realism hasn’t really been my thing?
“reefED” is the logo of the educational department. Quite clever.
But this was the mock-up they chose.
As they only had a couple of hundred dollars to spend I told them I’d have to simplify the design and it would be about 200mm (8″) wide. They said okay so this is what it turned out like.
And being a government department they came up with a really snappy title for the trophy which I had to fit on one engraved plaque.
