To AAEC Members:
Our website redesign and rebuild is currently underway. Now is the time to consider updating our logo to reflect our times and our mission. In order to have our logo truly reflect our membership, we are encouraging interested cartoonists to submit rough concepts for our new logo. We want to be clear this is not a contest for solicited finished work. This is more of a collective brainstorm from our diverse group of creative thinkers. The only guidelines are as follows:
-Submissions can be VERY rough concepts, and can be done as scanned pencil lines or as digital sketches.
-Ideally we'd like to incorporate our evolving mission of free speech.
-We'd like the logo to reflect all types of cartoonists, traditional, digital and animated. We are not making this change because of the 'ink bottle' imagery. An ink bottle can be smartly used in a new logo concept, if it has a current feel.
-Please include at least one version spelling out the full name of our organization: "Association of American Editorial Cartoonists"
-To submit your design concepts (or send any questions), email the Logo Committee by Friday, May 27th: firstname.lastname@example.org
-Please keep the attachments to under 5MB each, and send as many as you wish.
In early June, the AAEC board will narrow down the submissions and work to develop a final design.
