A high school in Crystal Lake, Illinois developed a contest to find its next school logo. Nearly 50 submissions were accounted for and the winning logo was created by a local graphic designer, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The 32-year-old designer, Michael Ullrich, decided to participate in the competition because he has nieces and nephews that will be attending Crystal Lake South High School in the upcoming years. His design was an alligator looking intensely over the word "gators", and the only visible part of the alligator is the eyes, the Tribune reports.

"I am very happy with both the outcome of the logo contest and the process used to get there," superintendent Jill Hawk told the news source.

Before the contest, the school was using the University of Florida's trademark design and last year they were told they were no longer able to use it.

A graphic designer's job is to relay a message in the most effective way through electronic media. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, these professionals can design for magazines, newspapers, journals, reports, logos and displays.
