My dad is a choir director, so I started attending Kansas Choral Director Association conventions when I was 11 or 12. And I still do. It’s a fun weekend to get away with Dad and spend some time with one of the most fun and fascinating breeds of people in its natural habitat: the American Choir Director. I was hired by the KCDA board to design a brand-new logo in the summer of 2015. The organization’s previous logo had some really iconic elements — particularly the swoosh with the waving wheat that turns into flying music notes — that I wanted to hold onto. I set that motif into the popularly-used abbreviated name, spelled out in a bold, modern typeface (which I personally modified) in Kansas sunset colors.
