It has become necessary to develop a logo for the popular #CapeAdvice service. True to the crowd-sourced style of building our Twitter community, I decided to farm out the opportunity to graphic designers in return for some tweet exposure. Of course, the first preference would be to pay one professional for her/his talent, but I figured, in this way more than one could get marketing exposure to a wider clientele. Bartering of sorts. I request followers to spread the news and share the process to achieve some reciprocity. Thanks in advance.
If interested: Indicate your intention to help out with a logo with a quick tweet to @iAmnotMany and tag it #logoforcapeadvice. Then, by latest deadline Monday 9 April at noon, please submit your design via email to firstname.lastname@example.org in simple JPEG format, after which the @CapeTown followers will be asked to vote regularly for a design via TWTpoll for one week.
Benefits: Each entrant will also be profiled on the website atcapetown.co.za/advice with a direct link to your preferred portfolio of work or website, and will also be introduce via tweets. The final decision will rest with me, but I will certainly place a heavy weight on the opinions of followers and affiliates, and intend to consult with them frequently via Twitter about your designs.
I am excited to see the results of the creative efforts. In addition, I hope this small campaign could help great graphic artists to get more exposure, especially in Cape Town – but entries are not limited to Capetonian designers this time around…
Thank you very much!
