Jeff Fisher, the Engineer of Creative Identity for the Portland-based firm Jeff Fisher LogoMotives, has been named to the University & College Designers Association (UCDA) Designer Magazine Advisory Board.

The UCDA was founded in 1970 as the nation's first and only association for professionals involved in the creation of visual communications for educational institutions. It has grown to an organization comprised of more than 1000 members throughout the United States and Canada. Designer is the official quarterly publication for the members of the organization.

The Designer Magazine Advisory Board was formed to assist UCDA in developing a high quality magazine. Board members also act as contributing editors by writing articles or assisting the editor with collecting articles for publication from other sources as well as suggesting topics for articles.

Fisher has contributed articles to the publication in the past, including an excerpt from his first book, "The Savvy Designer's Guide to Success." He was also a speaker at a past UCDA conference.

Over the years, the designer has worked on graphic design projects for Willamette University, University of Oregon, George Fox University, Reed College and other education institutions across the country. Fisher has received over 500 regional, national and international graphic design awards for his logo and corporate identity efforts. His work is featured in more than 80 publications on the design of logos, the business of graphic design, and small business marketing. He shares his observations about the design industry in writing for various magazines and web sites, and on his blog, bLog-oMotives.

Fisher is also a member of the HOW Magazine Editorial Advisory Board, the HOW Design Conference Advisory Council, and the Board of Directors of Proscodi: Professional Society of Communication Design. His latest book, "Identity Crisis!," will be released in 2007. More information about Jeff Fisher LogoMotives is available at
