This papercut was commissioned for a new school in the prairies of Iowa. I know! Iowa! Anyway, the brief was to produce a piece portraying a central tree with a girl on a swing on one side and a boy reading a book on the other side. My client also specifically wanted the Iowa hills and prairie grass to be represented in the papercut.
After submitting a couple of different sketches, this is the one that was settled on and I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. When I get sent the final logo with all the wording added in, I'll post it up on here with a link to the school.
