11-9-2022 Commercial Photography Student Creates Logo for the Keep Lytle Beautiful Committee

Members of the "Keep Lytle Beautiful" committee decided they wanted a logo to brand their efforts. After speaking with Lytle Mayor Ruben Gonzalez, committee members David Emery and Christopher Bowen looked at the logo for "Keep Texas Beautiful" - the state-level affiliate organization. Their conversation progressed to a simple pencil sketch of their collective ideas drawn by Mr. Bowen. Says Emery, "We knew we needed a clean, digital rendition of the penciled idea and so I asked my stepson, Stefan, if he could create a digital version, and he said he would give it a try." Second-year Commercial Photography student, Stefan Grigsby, proposed the project to his teacher Mr. Adam Leyva, who encouraged him to begin work on the design. 
"The rough pencil draft was a good place to start. I showed it to Mr. Leyva and asked if I could take on the project for a grade in his class," says Stefan, "I've had a lot of practice and had gotten pretty good at using Adobe PhotoShop, so the task was not as difficult as I thought it might be. When I ran into problems while adding shapes and colors to the design, I would go through a process of research, trial and error. When I absolutely needed help from Mr. Leyva, he was there to give me feedback and guidance. The overall experience really made me realize one thing - if you are competent with a skill, people will give you opportunities."
