    In 1970, Gary Anderson was a 23-year-old college student at the University of Southern California, when a Chicago container company held a design contest to raise awareness about the environment. Anderson’s submission won, and it became the internationally recognized recycling logo--and a design classic that ranks with the Coca-Cola and Nike marks, for sheer ubiquity.
