Logo Design Contest

Transition Joshua Tree is in transition.

And we need your help!

We are hosting a logo design contest as part of a re-branding effort.  We wish to convey ourselves as excited about meeting the challenges of the future, and optimistic about creating  a resilient community.  Transition is an international grassroots movement which is developing ways to thrive amidst the social, economic and environmental changes that are happening worldwide.

Our local Transition chapter is a green-in-the-desert movement, which offers a unique challenge to logo designers.  Flexibility is a key factor: the logo needs to resize easily and look good in color or black and white. Final version to be suitable for high quality printing.

Our new name and tagline is:

Transition Together Joshua Tree
Creating Resilient & Sustainable Mojave Desert Communities

The winner will receive a $200 cash prize and the right to identify herself/himself as the logo designer.
