We are excited to announce the launch of the Cambridge Compact for a Sustainable
Future’s first ever logo! High school senior Lara Butera submitted the winning logo as part of a design competition with the Rindge School of Technical Arts’ Creative Design Program in October. For the competition, we asked students to create a professional logo that embodied a unique business-city government-academic collaboration and sustainability in Cambridge.

The selection committee chose the winning logo because it is unique, clean, and bold; gives the Compact a sense of identity; is legible; and has a logomark suitable for a variety of formats and uses. We are excited to use it as we implement our recently affirmed three-year work plan and with the go live of our new website. Kathleen Granchelli, Draper and Steve Lanou, MIT visited the students to announce the winners, hand out awards, and provide constructive feedback to awardee submissions (see photo above).


A special thank you to all the students who participated and our selection committee judges who reviewed almost 30 design submissions.

Selection Committee: Lee Gianetti, City of Cambridge; Holly Flesh, Village Industrial Power; Casey Hanson, Cambridge Compact for a Sustainable Future; Steve Lanou, MIT; Louis Liss, MIT; Jaclyn Olsen, Harvard; and Lisa Peterson, City of Cambridge.
