Backpacks For The Street is looking for a new visual identity and needs your help. Open to all — especially artists and inspired creatives who are struggling — we invite you to design a creative, innovative and professional logo that promotes a positive image around our mission of “bringing compassion and dignity to the lives of the homeless.” Click here to read more about what we do.

This logo will be featured on our website, our social media platforms and other mediums (stationary, pamphlets, t-shirts, backpacks, etc). As a result, the logo should be eye-catching and strong. It cannot contain copyrighted material and should not include images or licensed images that have been previously published. Must be easily reproducible and scalable for large and small formatting.

Among other things, the winner will receive a $250 gift card to DaVinci Art Supply, private sessions with a life coach, professionally produced renderings of the logo, a professional portfolio photo shoot with a top NYC photographer, produced products featuring the design and the winning color design displayed atop two Times Square buildings. (See below for more detail.)
