Indiana Student Wins the Casa Yallaha T-Shirt Design Contest

Casa Yallaha is happy to announce Felicia Pettigrew, a 20 year old Huntington University Student, from Huntington, Indiana as the winner of their T-Shirt Design Contest.

St. Augustine, FL, March 23, 2009 --( Summer Color from Felicia Pettigrew, a 20 year old Huntington University Student, from Huntington, Indiana won the Casa Yallaha T-Shirt Design Contest. Felicia entered four separate designs; Bridge Street, Sitting by the Beach, Florida Oranges and Summer Color. Summer Color was chosen as the hands down winner by a panel that consisted of the owners and management of Casa Yallaha. Summer Color was chosen based on the exquisite use of color and design elements that is not only very attractive, but a design that would successfully transfer to a T-Shirt.

Felicia shared how she came up with the design, what made her enter the contest and what her future plans are. "When I think of Florida I always think of beautiful flowers and bright/warm colors. So I decided on a flower design."

Why enter the contest? "Some friends and I were looking online for somewhere to go on Spring Break and we found Casa Yallaha Hostel in St. Augustine, Florida. I went on the website to look at some of the pictures and saw there was a t-shirt design contest, so I decided I would give it a shot!" "Also, I was interested in winning the prize money to help out with the cost of being a college student. I also just enjoy designing and creating pieces for other people, I thought this contest sounded like fun!"

What are your future plans? "Well that is a great question. I am an Art Student, majoring in Graphic Design at Huntington University. I am hoping to do something with my art, consisting anywhere from photography, design, graphics, or pottery. I am a firm believer in missions and ministry, so if I get a chance to use my art in those areas, that would be amazing. I plan on graduating, and hopefully someday getting married and having a family. I am going to cling to the joys in life and try my best to share the love of Jesus Christ!"

Summer Color will be printed on T-Shirts for women and children. Felicia won $100 and will be receiving a free T-Shirt featuring her design.
