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 second annual farmer’s market poster. This poster will also be used as a centerpiece of our marketing materials, in advertisements, branded merchandise, and social media.

 

Background

We are entering our third season as a market. We would like to kickstart the spring season with the second 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, used in our marketing, and be used as gifts to members and more.

Tasks to be Accomplished

Create a design for the 2019 Salt & Soil Marketplace poster that includes elements or concepts that complement our current style, colors, and branding.
