Calling all artists and graphic designers! Visit Carson City is looking for your help in capturing the essence of Carson City, Nevada through graphic representations that can be used on new merchandise like clothing, water bottles, stickers and more.
The words “Carson City” should also be included in the design. Submitted designs will be put to a community vote where one or more merchandise graphics will be selected.
The submission deadline is Friday, January 14, 2022 at 6 p.m. and multiple models can be chosen. The winner (s) will be announced by Tuesday, February 1, 2022 and will each receive $ 500 for Visit Carson City to retain full rights to the design. Local artists and designers are preferred, but applications will be accepted anyway.
“Since we considered the merchandise to be representative of Carson City, we really liked the idea of involving the community,” said David Peterson, executive director of Visit Carson City. “Our sincere hope is that people here participate by either submitting original designs or voting for their favorite. The designs should not only summarize the character, history and landscape of Carson City, but should also bring the personal touch and creativity of the artist to the table and for it to be a graphic they would be proud of. carry.
Merchandise design entries should be submitted as Portable Network Graphics (PNG). Applications and any questions about the project can be submitted by email to Lydia Beck, Marketing and Public Relations Manager at Visit Carson City, [email protected] The vote will go live the week of January 17, 2022.
