Thank you Kiet, that means a lot coming from a former co-mentor (from our days on 968) and a team of your caliber (1538). I thought you’d like it.
I’ll be honest with you, we had a nascar-like font style in mind, browsed through several hundred fonts, and arrived at this one. I know it’s hard to believe, but we actually made no reference to any other team during our font selection and design process. We also modified the font by hand-drawing in a few details.
Overall, your team (and our former team, 968) have both been a true inspiration to 696. Our students had no idea they were capable of doing such quality work until shown how. The difference is apparent when comparing our robot this year to our robot last year. Due to having several examples of quality work to reference and show, our students were really able to step it up a notch this year. They had no idea they were capable of such quality. Thank you for being a good example and model team.
My four years spent on 968 are finally rubbing off on 696. I think they’re beginning to understand the concept of quality.
