Stafford grad part of new logo

Lindsay Schabert, a 2004 graduate of Stafford High School, was part of a team of multimedia students from Cincinnati State who developed a new series of logos for a community fund.

Schabert, 27, a graphics arts major at Cincinnati State, did the work as part of a Capstone project. That's when teams from different majors work for 9 weeks to create multimedia pieces for clients seeking assistance.

For this project, the team of students developed logos and videos for the Marvin Lewis Community Fund. The fund, led by the coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, has provided scholarships, sports camps and other financial assistance for 10 years.

Schabert, who majored in graphic arts at Cincinnati, also earned a bachelor's degree in fine arts from Randolph-Macon College in Ashland.
