The paperclip was used as a symbol of resistance during World War II. In the autumn of 1940, students at Oslo University started wearing paperclips on their lapels as a non-violent symbol of resistance, unity, and national pride.

In addition to wearing a single paperclip, paperclip bracelets and other types of jewelry were fashioned, symbolically binding Norwegians together in the face of such adversity.
I wanted the PhotoGraphycx logo to demonstrate the transition that I have made through the years because of the enhancements in technology since twenty five years ago when I started in Graphics Communications. JC Art Company was appropriate for this field when I started. We had much hands on design work in the printing business. Now, just about everything I do is digital. Notice the P and G has J and C hidden in the logo. Pretty nifty!
This logo was designed on an artboard in Adobe Illustrator. Years ago I would get the sketch pad out and doodle. Now my sketch pad is an iPad, a digital tablet or a monitor. It is very seldom I touch a #2 pencil.
Learning is endless in this field. Not a day goes by that I haven’t learned something new. I love my job.
After basic training at Ft Jackson SC, MSG E-8 Charles Bunner completed AMMO school at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in 1955 then served in South Korea as an E-3 and E-4 in two separate ammunition companies of the Eighth Army. In 1956, he was assigned to an ammunition company at Ft. Knox, Kentucky.
It was near Christmas of 1956 that Charles was on his way home from Ft. Knox, Kentucky when he had to stop to have his 1951 Plymouth repaired. He got off Route near Louisville eventually correcting his route but it was late, pushing 3am, and he began to get very drowsy so he asked his passenger who was a fellow West Virginian from Elkins to take over the wheel. So, he drifted off as a passenger in his own vehicle while being taxied.
