The winning design.
Brightwood artist wins Senior Centerís logo contest posted on 12/01/2018

Haley Montana, the winner of the Hoodland Senior Center (HSC) logo redesign contest, was so inspired by the center’s civic outreach that she created and submitted seven separate designs to the competition, which ended Oct. 31.

“I cannot believe how she captured the senior center in every single one,” said HSC director Ella Vogel about Montana’s abundance of contributions.

Montana is a Brightwood resident who has lived in the Mount Hood area for five years since her retirement from Kaiser Permanente. She studied art in high school and stated she always has fun creating art and entering competitions on the side.

Montana recently entered Rhododendron’s “Rhody Rising” logo contest and placed sixth among the finalists. She was asked to enter the HSC logo contest and toured the center to gain a better perspective on their role in the community.

“I wanted to see their facilities and see what they were doing,” Montana said. “What a great effort they put out for such a small staff.”

During her tour she noticed the HSC’s focus on transportation services in the community.

Her winning design features the HSC’s bus in front of Mount Hood with a wheelchair and examples of the center’s services including a spoon and fork symbolizing the meal delivery program.

“A lot of people couldn’t live out here without the center,” Montana said.

In addition to the design ideas, Montana donated several works of her own art, a selection of animals painted on carefully selected river rocks, to the center to sell at the Mount Hood Oregon Resort Holiday Artisan Fair held Nov. 24-25.

“This lady puts so much detail into everything she does,” Vogel said about Montana’s contributions.

The new logo will be used for the senior center’s newsletter. Vogel added it will also be incorporated into a future website and a Facebook page although the center does not currently maintain an internet presence. The HSC is currently displaying all seven of Montana’s logo designs and plans on making them a permanent display.

“I can’t think of any other decoration I’d rather have; it’s just so perfect,” Vogel said.

The prize for the contest was a Mount Hood coverlet crafted by the HSC. Montana is currently working on a large-scale poster for the Friends of the Hoodland Library highlighting their organization.

The HSC can be reached by phone at 503-622-3331 or by email at hoodlandseniors@frontier.com.
