World Cooperative Congress visual identity: call to designers

12 Dec 2019

The International Cooperative Alliance invites designers worldwide to bid to be the creators of our World Cooperative Congress visual identity. Deadline for the submission of credentials and initial response to the brief is 6 January 2020 COB.

This Congress is particularly special because the ICA is celebrating its 125th anniversary and the 25th anniversary of the Statement on the Cooperative Identity.

The 2020 Congress will be held in Seoul (Republic of Korea) from 11-17 December 2020. It will be the second Congress to be held outside Europe.

Design competition process

The selection process for our 2020 Congress visual identity will have 2 stages:

Stage 1: Credentials and written response

Designers interested in creating our 2020 Congress visual identity are invited to send a portfolio selection of their relevant work, plus a written response (up to 2 pages) explaining why they would be a good project partner, and responding to the creative brief. We are not asking for visuals at this stage.

Stage 2: Visual submissions

Five designers will be asked to submit creative ideas in visual form, in return for a ‘pitch payment’ of €500.

One of the five designers will then be chosen to partner us in the for full design project. The project fee for the agency chosen as our full project partner will receive a fee of €5000.
