Graphic Signature Contest - $500 Prize

Tuesday May 19, 2020

1. Introduction

The Montreal Bike Coalition (CVMBC) is a non-profit, 100% volunteer organization founded in 2012. Our mandate:

  • Represent the citizens and organizations of the Montreal region interested and involved in urban cycling.
  • Promote urban cycling.
  • Support, not duplicate, the work done by our members and other organizations.
  • Help, structure and coordinate communications between our members and other organizations.
  • Be the single meeting point for the urban cycling community in all its diversity.

We want to move our mandate from promoting urban cycling to promoting active mobility to be more inclusive and consistent with neighbourhood associations.

2. Contest objectives and details

We are launching a competition to find a graphic designer to replace our logo as we move from our current name to the Coalition mobilité active Montréal / Montréal Active Mobility Coalition (CMAMC).

The winner will be chosen from those who submit a design that can be used on multiple platforms, in positive and negative versions, including, but not limited to:

  • Printing - letters and marketing materials (e.g. brochures, banners, business cards, etc.)
  • Website
  • Social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

An inventory of our current graphic treatments and uses can be found in the download document attached to this post.  Please feel free to offer us other ways of doing things (FR-ANG-BILINGUE)
