Every OCWiC event has its own unique logo. For OCWiC17, general chair Alina Lazar chose a logo developed by Tracey Hughes. I interviewed Tracey to find out more about her, and how she designed the logo.

BB: Thanks for all of your work on the OCWiC17 logo and event poster. I would like to talk to you about how you did the design. Can you answer some questions for this "designer profile"?

BB:What's your name and where do you go to school? What's your rank and your major?
