LatinX in Animation Logo

LatinX in Animation would like to present our new logo. We wanted a modern logo that reflects the Latinx culture, artists, and professionals that are bursting out of the animation, VFX, and gaming industries. Our logo falls in line with the organization's mission to empower Latinx professions in animation, from story to post.
