About Our Logo

SFUAD Foundation LogoThe SFUAD Charitable Foundation hired graphic design student Arnold Mateos to design its logo. We thank him for his unique design that mimics the look and feel of the SFUAD logo, yet evokes the sense of ‘giving back’ through the iconic tree image.

Arnold originally hails from Mexico and is studying at SFUAD. His other work can be viewed at http://www.behance.net/arnoldmateos.
