For the second year in a row, Melanie Wolff of West Babylon was a member of Wilson Tech’s Advertising/Graphic Design team that won first place in the Huntington Chamber of Commerce’s 12th annual Business Leadership Competition. Melanie teamed up this year with Luis Alvarado-Rodriguez, also of West Babylon, and bested 350 entries from both Nassau and Suffolk counties for their imaginative logos, professional branding concepts, and composure.
The two seniors had to design a brand identity for “Vammia,” a fictitious new upscale women’s clothing company geared to ages 18-30. Then, at the competition, they had to present their design scheme, including logo, and clothing tags/labels for this new fashion brand. Business people from Long Island then asked them to explain why they had selected their colors and designs.
Both students are making plans to attend college to pursue a career in graphic design. Since the competition began in 2003, Wilson Tech students have place either first or second in this prestigious local contest.
