Winner of ABS logo competition announced

Aberdeen Business School Competition WinnerThe winner of an RGU competition to design the ‘face’ of Aberdeen Business School’s Golden Anniversary celebrations has been announced.

Aneliya Kalcheva designed the winning logo to brand celebrations for 50 years of ABS. Her winning entry will be used for a variety of purposes throughout 2015 as ABS kicks off its year of celebrations at New Year. Aneliya, a media student at RGU, was presented with her prize of £50 worth of book tokens last night.

Aneliya’s winning logo was selected from a variety of entries but her aim was to complement the current RGU logo and colour palette, encompass the mission, vision and values of ABS. All events and publications associated with the 50th Anniversary will be branded with the winning logo.

As part of the ABS’ 50th anniversary celebrations next year there will be an exhibition of memorabilia of ABS throughout its history and present. The exhibition committee would like anyone with any memorabilia on ABS at any stage over the past 50 years to send it to  for use in the exhibition.

Although RGU has been around for many years and its role in the community can be traced back nearly three and a half centuries to the birth of Aberdeen merchant and benefactor Robert Gordon in 1668, the business school was opened in 1965 and has since been preparing graduates for employment. Delivering its first course in 1965, Aberdeen Business School has seen many changes and developments in its 50 year history. Having previously been located at various sites around Aberdeen, the ABS building opened in 1998. It was designed to allow numerous departments to move from separate small campuses to one central site and was originally known as the "Faculty of Management" building.
