Calling All Graphic Designers

 

Women in Film and Media Pittsburgh is working on an exciting new look for 2020 and we’re looking for graphic designers who would love the chance for an amazing portfolio piece to help us out.

The top of our list of things to do is to create a new logo, and we want the top-notch talent in our community to create it for us. If you’re a graphic designer, or have graphic design skills, we need you.

We want this logo to represent WIFM and the thriving local film and media industry with a modern flair, including:

  • Clean lines
  • No more than three colors
  • Different sizes for different types of usage

If your logo is chosen, it will be used on all of our digital branding and eventually be phased into our print branding. You will be acknowledged on the web site with a link to your info/bio/portfolio and we’ll announce your logo on our social media channels. You’ll also receive a free year membership to WIFM Pittsburgh. If you’re already a member, your next year’s membership fee will be waived.

If you prefer that we don’t link to your info or announce your name with the logo’s unveiling on social media, please let us know and we’ll accommodate your request.

You’ll be notified by email if your design is chosen.
