Grad student designs museum logo

NMHMC_Color logo

By Elizabeth Harmon Miller —


Biomedical visualization student Samantha Olson’s design was selected as the new logo of the National Museum of Health + Medicine Chicago.

The National Museum of Health + Medicine Chicago has revealed its new logo and, with it, the designer: Samantha Olson, a second-year student in UIC’s biomedical visualization program.

“We were lucky enough to partner with [the Advanced Graphic Design class in] UIC’s biomedical visualization program to redesign our logo,” said a museum news release.

“Straddling the boundaries between simplicity and complexity, [Olson’s] design eloquently embodies the core concepts that drive NMHMChicago.”

Olson said she was surprised her design was selected.

“My peers had also developed beautiful, insightful logos,” says Olson. “We all pushed each other in the project, and that family-like support is why I love my graduate program at UIC.”

Her work will be on a slate with the identities of other world-class Chicago museums.

“How cool is that?” Olson said. “I’m truly honored to be involved in representing the NMHMC, an equally wonderful museum among its peers.”
