VCD Student Designs Logo for New Student Center Dining Spot

Senior visual communication design major Jordan Edgar, '23, is the creator of the logo for Homeslice Pizzeria, Kent State’s newest dining location. 

Edgar is a student multimedia designer for University Housing and Culinary Services and was asked to design the logo for Homeslice. Before beginning the design process, Edgar knew she wanted to create a logo that would match the environment of the Kent Student Center and incorporate elements of a pizza restaurant. 

“For colors, we wanted to use red and green that would match the theme of a pizza place,” she said. 

Edgar also wanted to use a stucco pattern that matched a wall for the logo's background, but she realized the color would match the bricks in the Kent Student Center. 

“We eventually decided on using a cracked and plastered background that would match a wall you would see in a variety of places,” she said. 

For the final elements of the logo, Edgar wanted to incorporate a sauce spread that resembles the process of making a pizza. 

She is proud of the work she has done and is excited that it can be shared with others. 

“It’s cool to see something that I created come to life and that people have the opportunity to experience it,” Edgar said.
