Marquis Not to Be
This is the story of a design improvement that's come just too late to enjoy its realization. I designed the crest and logo for Marquis House in Kilgo Quadrangle when Duke adopted the new housing model in 2012. That design has been immortalized on a plaque mounted on Duke's iconic stone walls, and I am less than pleased with that rendition. When Duke inevitably adopts a new housing model (prediction: 2020), you can bet I'll be on it with this updated design.
In any case, my favorite part of the crest was my fleur de lis featuring an M bar. Here I have refined the logo to highlight the two central symbols of the house: the fleur de lis and the dogwood flower.
