MARKET POSTER

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

General

The Salt & Soil Marketplace, a project of the Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition, is seeking a Southeast Alaska based artist or graphic artist with fine art skills to produce the artwork for our first farmer’s market poster.

 

Background

We are entering our second season as a market. We would like to kickstart the season with the first of an annual series of posters to help publicize and celebrate the market and the Southeast Alaskan bounty.

This poster is one of the most visible public elements of our brand, and will be placed around Southeast Alaska. Premium prints of the poster will be sold at markets and used in our membership reward tiers.

 

Tasks to be Accomplished

Create a design for the 2018 Salt & Soil Marketplace poster that includes elements or concepts that complement our current style, colors, and branding.
