The Unicode Consortium is pleased to announce the new design selected
for the cover of the forthcoming print-on-demand publication of The
Unicode Standard, Version 9.0. This is the first time the Unicode
Consortium issued an open call for artists and designers to submit cover
design proposals. All submitted designs were reviewed by an independent

[cover art by Gabee Ayres]

The selected artwork is an original design by Gabee Ayres, a student and
teaching assistant at the University of Pennsylvania with a background
in fine arts, design and logic. Of her design, Ms. Ayres says, "I wanted
to create a cover that reflected the technology inherent in Unicode
without looking impassive or unwelcoming."

Two runner-up designs by Jiachen Hu and Laura von Husen were also
selected. Jiachen Hu is a computer science student at the University of
California, Berkeley. Laura von Husen earned a Master's degree in
graphic design and illustration, and currently lives in Hamburg, Germany.
