... is, I've found out, one John Christopher Burns, a designer based in Atlanta, Georgia.
He has a very impressive portfolio. Not only is he responsible for KOIN's new look, he also crafted the original "NorthWest NewsChannel 8" look (though they don't use that now, he can take some consolation in the new look being so clearly based on his former design, and that they decided to go with the call sign in the logo (which we gave high marks to as well)).
Do I wish I was this guy. Hell yeah ... except for the living in Atlanta part (nothing personal, JCB, Dixie's just not my can'o'beer).
By the way, a spirited discussion on KOIN's new look (including a critique by myself) can be found at Oregon Media Insiders ... here.
