  3. 3. 2nd place - 19 votes - Margot RochonBio: Margot Rochon first came to Austin, Texas on a scholastic field-tripas a sophomore of San Antonios Burbank High School. By this time inher life, Margot had already visited many cities across the U.S.--fromWashington D.C. to San Diego, California--but she immediately knewthat there was just something different about Austin. This was, in fact,her first experience with love at first sight. Although she was uncertainwhat she wanted "to be" when she grew up, she was entirelyconvicted that it was going to start with enrollment at the University ofTexas at Austin. In the fall of 2000, Margot (thrilled to be resettled inAustin at last!) enrolled at UT Austin where studied Radio, Television,and Film while living in the local co-ops. Following her tenure at UT,she worked for two years in live music video production for the nowdefunct Austin Music Network and currently works in Media Servicesfor the local community college, ACC.Having picked up a crayon to draw pictures before she could even spellher name, Margot has had a life-long love of all things art and hasdabbled in several artistic mediums--in particular she enjoys lifedrawing, painting, and graphic design. Recently, her interests in art,technology, and the emergent landscape of social media in the digitalage came to a crossroads with the opportunity to design a logo for theAustin chapter of Social Media Club (SMC). Having researched otherSMC chapter logos, Margot decided to pursue a somewhatconservative aesthetic approach--one that did not stray far from theestablished logo aesthetic of most chapters, but that still capturediconic elements unique to the city she has called home since the dawnof the new millennium.When not playing around with media and/or the web, Margot can befound walking her dog along Ladybird Lake (which she still thinks of asTown Lake) or munching on a Brushfire taco at Torchys. 3
