Amtrak 40th Anniversary Logo Wins 2011 Graphic Design USA Award

Posted by Emily Howard at Jan 03, 2012 05:20 PM |
Amtrak has another reason to celebrate the 40th Anniversary thanks to its logo winning top honors from Graphic Design USA.

Amtrak has won a top graphic design award for its 40th anniversary logo, which was created in-house by Graphic Specialist Collin King, Government Affairs and Corporate Communications, with art direction from Product Development Officer Matt Donnelly and Principal Graphic Designer Marlon Sharpe. 

The American Graphic Design Awards are presented each year by Graphic Design USA, in New York, to honor outstanding work in a variety of media. 

The image features locomotives in the company’s heritage paint schemes and an Acela Express power car atop the words “Amtrak Celebrates 40 Years.” The dates 1971-2011 are framed by the original and current company logos. 

A gallery containing Amtrak's logo along with all other winning designs can be viewed on Graphic Design USA's website.  Simply scroll through to see all winning entries. 

Congratulations Amtrak, on this tremendous honor.
