Archive for June, 2010
It is our intention to offer this opportunity to students/emerging designers much like all of the emerging artists, bands and performers that take part in our events. We do greatly value the time of our local designers, so if you might be interested in creating the festival logo, please email your design to firstname.lastname@example.org. Being a non-profit organization we have a very limited budget but we do understand that as a professional you don’t want to give your time away, but please do apply if you do see the value in helping the Plaza District Festival attain a fresh design that reflects all of the great changes that are happening in the district and OKC today!
“2010 Plaza District Festival” as text, vector/illustrator files, please include fonts with email.
The chosen designer will be featured on the back of the t-shirt as a sponsor, and as a feature on our website and social networking sites.
Here are links for more information about the festival:
