Huntington Bank in Columbus, Ohio, recently hired a local artist and Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD) Alum, to design its new welcome banner.

Elizabeth Heller Allen, the chief communications officer at the bank, recommended the winning artist, Kirstin Bowen. Allen was one of the main reasons that Bowen's design was selected. Allen also was the person to make sure they went for local talent instead of hiring someone elsewhere.

"Not only did we have the privilege to work with a local small business owner and the opportunity to showcase a Columbus institution, but we're already receiving great feedback from our colleagues about adding a fun and stylish scarf to our new apparel line," said Allen.

Bowen is well known for her lavish, vibrant murals that still decorated local businesses, and now her design is displayed at the bank's location.

Bowen's banner design was also recreated into a scarf, which debuted during the CCAD annual fashion show this past May. It will be a part of the career apparel line in which the bank employees are required to wear.
