The Caring Award

I designed this award for The Visiting Nurse Association by combining elements from their logo: the heart, helping hands, and a sheltering home.  The upward reaching, open hand suggests both giving & receiving; the heart & the head-like forms are sheltered in the curve of the upswept "arm".

Two awards were given each year from 1998 to 2011.
