Many thanks to Robyn Hepker of Benson & Hepker who generously designed and donated a logo for Iowa Tech Chicks. We have been getting by with some copyright-free images from Pixabay, but they were rather rough to say the least. We’re excited to have a logo that works well on social media and sponsorship locations!
