Inka Screen Printing & Embroidery

Jesus Olivares (far right), Sergio Espinoza (far left), and the team at Inka Printing, came up with the new logo for Coachella Valley High School. Jesus is a graduate of CVHS, and put in a lot of effort in designing the logo, which he did voluntarily. Olivares and his team talked to Arab Americans and researched the culture/heritage of Arabs. Their dedication is reflected in their work.
