SWC Logo Competition!

swc-logoScottish Writers’ Centre
by writers, for writers

Logo Competition

The Scottish Writers’ Centre need a new logo that reflects the level of creativity in Scotland. As we change and grow as an organisation, we need a modern look that reflects who we are. Our primary aim is to support writers living in Scotland. We want to encourage and celebrate Scottish writing; to support the learning and development of writers living in Scotland; and to enable dialogue between writers nationally and internationally.

This is a rare opportunity to be part of the rebranding of an organisation. The winning design will be featured across all of our social media platforms, advertisements, and merchandise. You will also receive a payment of £300.

The primary objective of this competition is to reflect one of the core values of the Scottish Writers’ Centre, that we are “by writers, for writers”, as well as to create a vibrant and eye-catching logo.

Our target audience is writers across Scotland and beyond, across all age groups. Our audience is constantly evolving, growing outside of our central location in Glasgow as we branch out into new projects. The new logo will be used across all our social media platforms, on merchandise, and on advertising. It should reflect not only our organisation, but also our beliefs. They key word is modern; we don’t need quills and parchment, or to look back at what has been done before.
