For $7,000 — Ends 26 Jul 2018

Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) Mission
Our mission is to protect the people and the environment of Santa Barbara County from the effects of air pollution. For the past 48 years and into the future, APCD has and will continue to do the following: work with businesses to control local sources of pollution, monitor air quality throughout Santa Barbara County, run incentive and grant programs to reduce pollution, and provide air quality information to the community.
Services We Are Seeking
Santa Barbara County APCD is seeking proposals to design a new logo and collaborate on the development of related materials. The new logo must be able to work across signage, print, and online media, and it must stand out from other logos as unique and memorable. The designer will also help with the development of other materials using the final logo, such as letterhead and business cards.
We envision having the designer submit between five and eight logo designs for us to collaboratively review and modify until final. APCD will work closely with the designer to discuss the agency’s overall goals, messages, and design preferences for the logo. We expect this process to occur over several in-person meetings (and occasional remote meetings if necessary) between select APCD staff and the designer.
Each proposal should include the following:
• Description of concept development process for logo design
• Examples of previous logo designs
• A quote for the cost to design and complete the work, including finalizing the logo and developing concepts for other materials using the final logo
Final Logo Design Deliverables and Requirements:
• 5-8 draft logo designs
• Provide logo in black and white, with 5 color palettes to choose from for final logo
• Provide PMS and CMYK color numbers for all versions
• Provide final logo in electronic high-resolution format
• Provide final logo in vector format
• Create HTML code to link the final logo back to our website to allow for other businesses to link to the website
• Provide font names and files (if applicable) for the final logo text
• Provide multiple layouts of final logo (ie: landscape and portrait versions, as well as versions using our shortened name and full name)
• Provide style guide for final logo
• Provide coordination with print vendor (if possible)
Release of Ownership
• Chosen designer will release all rights of ownership of the logo upon selection and completion of the logo.
• Chosen designer will waive all rights to use of the logo and will not use the logo or its likeness for any other purposes except inclusion in their professional portfolio.
Limited funds are set aside for this project. We look forward to proposals and recommendations that allocate resources in the most cost-effective way.
If you are interested in working with Santa Barbara County APCD on this project, please submit your proposal to Lyz Hoffman at or 260 North San Antonio Road, Suite A, Santa Barbara, CA 93110.
Proposals are due July 20, 2018. - $7000.0
