Call for Brand Identity

Do you have graphic design experience or think you can make something great? 757ColorCoded is searching for a cohesive brand identity as it grows.

We need a clearly read and understood logo that can be scaled as needed. To complete the branding, it would be helpful to have a color palette and typography as well.

Haven’t put together a brand guide or style guide before? Not a problem! You can check out some examples of professional brand guides, or a guide from 99designs on creating a brand guide. If you have an idea, we will work with you on the formatting and help you create something you can add to your portfolio.

What about rights? You can keep ownership of your idea. We just need the right to use, display and print it on anything we need in perpetuity. You also need to agree not to use it as a logo for another organization or product, as that could confuse people.

Need another reason to get involved? A fabulous prize awaits the person or team whose brand identity is chosen. The details will be announced shortly, so please watch this space.

Ready to share your creation? Please submit your brand identity ideas to the leadership team.
