OWA Logos





This is the original graphic done by Carlos Villalva, probably around 1985, done as a poster for the OWA. The portico is a copy of a drawing by Julia Morgan.

A cleaned up version of the portico was made in the late 1980's and used on stationary and printed newsletters up through the present.


A slicker version of the logo was created for the website which was launched in 2002.

2017 Logo Competition

In 2017 the OWA promoted a competition for the redesign of the OWA logo. A sample entry form for the submission of designs was prepared but was superceded by a more simple call for entries in the OWA newsletter.

Three entries were submitted:

Conyee Chan:

Rebecca Freiberg:

Nayive Kalkack:


The Steering Committee took no action on the 2017 logo competition.
The webmaster made some adjustments to the existing graphics and incorporated the "+DP" into the design as an interum measure.

And the Name Block

And the portico that goes with it
