Wanted: a professional graphic designer to communicate solutions to shape the next economy 3/15/12
To grow its next economy, Rhode Island needs fresh ideas that change the game. We believe the game changing ideas will come from many people in Rhode Island and beyond its borders. Please review the short set of presentation slides included with this call for designers.
The process for soliciting game changing next economy ideas is being done by the Economic Development Foundation of Rhode Island (EDFRI) along with many strategic partners. The partnership is about to launch an online tool topublicly invite, debate and choose useful proposals to shape our next economy.
Deadline is 4/11/12!
Scope of the Design Challenge
This project requires the right image and a name to embody the essence of what we are up to. We have yet to settle on a name, albeit the project is currently called RIDeation, this name has yet to be fully embraced. Other names presented in this call for designers are used only to reveal the spirit and aims of the project. And the names are presented in no order of interest or priority:
• RI creating jobs
• Action for the RI economy
• Innovation for the RI economy
• Ideas for the future of RI
• Challenges facing the RI economy
• Crowd sourcing for the next RI economy
• Crowd sourcing for RI’s future
In essence, there is no chosen name so help us create one.
The image and name will be used electronically on the website and the purchased online vetting tool. There is no plan for using the image and name for business cards, stationery and so on.
A selection team will review the submissions and make a choice. It is composed of: Scott Gibbs of EDFRI, Stephanie Fortunato of Providence’s Office of Arts, Culture and Tourism, Robert Leaver of New Commons, Lucie Searle of AS220, and Marcel Valois of EDFRI.
Once the winner is chosen, ERDFRI will work with the designer to render the logo and name ready for use online.
Questions: call Robert Leaver at New Commons at 401-475-6762.
