Irvine Valley College is pleased to announce that Bill Atkins, IVC’s part-time faculty member in Digital Media Arts, was selected out of more than 300 entries in a contest created by the California Coastal Commission to design a new Whale Tail® Ecoplate for the State of California.
Bill, a graphic designer and illustrator from Laguna Beach, Calif., and Elizabeth Robinette Tyndall, a painter who lives in Bethel Island on Northern California’s Delta in Contra Costa County were invited by the Coastal Commission to collaborate on a new Whale Tail® image, combining facets of each of their winning designs. A team of graphic designers made final refinements.
To thank them for their efforts, the Coastal Commission rewarded each artist with $1,000, and invited them to attend Whale Tail® Ecoplate press conferences held on August 2. Bill was hosted by the City of Dana Point at the harbor.
