What do Kodiak’s King Crabs and KEA’s wind turbines have in common? The 2013 Kodiak Crab Festival’s logo – and poster – feature both! This year’s theme is “Powered by Nature”. KEA is honored to have inspired the artists to feature your cooperative’s wind turbines as a symbol of Kodiak in their work.
The logo designed by Coast Guardsman Sean Lawler in black and white with shades of gray features three Pillar Mountain wind turbines and a Kodiak King Crab. This logo appears on all sorts of Crab Festival gear this year, including hats, shirts, jogging pants, and yoga pants, available for purchase at the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce.
The poster created by graphic designer and photographer Adina Preston is a colorful design featuring six wind turbines and Kodiak King Crabs, and carnival rides. Adina will be signing posters on Friday, May 24 at the Best Western Kodiak Inn at 6:30 p.m., and again on Saturday, May 25 at the Northern Exposure Gallery following the Crab Festival Parade. Don’t miss the opportunity to get your poster signed!
When tourists, friends, and family fly in on Alaska Airlines to visit the festival, they can enjoy reading more about KEA’s wind power success in the May 2013 issue of Alaska Airlines Magazine. The article “Power Plays”, by Eric Lucas, explores how Alaska and Hawaii are turning energy challenges into models of sustainability. It includes the beautiful picture of three Pillar Mountain wind turbines at sunset by Adina Preston that KEA displayed on our 2012 Annual Report and 2013 Annual Meeting Packet.
