Staff Member of the Quarter (2014-1): Br. Hawke Bassignani!
February 1, 2014
Kudos and thanks are in order to Brother William “Hawke” Bassignani for his hard work as Director of Design for the Delta Lambda Phi Office of Communications! Hawke has been recognized by his peers in the Fraternity Office as Staff Member of the Quarter for the first quarter of the 2014 fiscal year.
Brother Bassignani is an alumnus of the Alpha Chi of DLP in Boston, MA. Hawke continues to actively contribute to Delta Lambda Phi through countless hours of work leading the Design Team. Many of the designs used in marketing materials, branding, and events have been designed over were overseen by Hawke. His vision & creativity have helped launch the DLP brand to the next level!
The Fraternity’s Chief Communications Officer, Br. Rob Lydick, nominated Br. Bassignani for this award, saying:
“Hawke was hired back in August for his current role and has transitioned seamlessly from OIS to the Office of Communications. His ideas and vision when it comes to the logos and branding of the Fraternity have truly helped us to begin the process of bringing a unified style guide to fruition, a goal the Office of Comm has been unable to even remotely attain prior to Hawke’s on-boarding. In fact, the shield logo that the Fraternity Office will begin implementing as a branding/marketing tool is the result of Hawke’s efforts – something that took many hours of drafting and revision.
Aside from this particular project, Hawke’s design skills never cease to amaze me. He is certainly not afraid to think outside the box when it comes to drafting new design elements, whether they be event logos (Conferences, Push/Save Ernie, Convention, etc), t-shirt designs, or other special projects. I have also witnessed Hawke growing in his position. He has grown to better accept and discuss design critiques while also effectively leading the Design Specialists in his office. He is a creative, reliable, and invaluable asset to the Office of Communications, the Fraternity Office, and Delta Lambda Phi. I am proud to work with Hawke and call him my brother.”
