The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District is asking the community to submit original logo designs to complement a new branding strategy designed to reflect the core values of the organization.

All submissions must be original, simple, easily replicable and produced without the use of photography.

Logos should also highlight SMMUSD’s dedication to diversity; arts and academics; whole child: each child deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged; and community, collaboration, forward thinking and engagement.

A volunteer panel of graphic designers will judge the logos: Josh Freeman (FreeAssociates), Terry Graboski (Beck & Graboski Design Office), Ni Glynn (Greenmount Digital), Diane Kuntz (Diane Kuntz Design Studio), Susanne Manheimer (Susanne Manheimer Design), Joven Orozco (We The Creative) and Bea Pomasanoff (freelance).

The winner of the competition will be featured on material related to the SMMUSD rebranding process and in a press release.

Submissions must be delivered or mailed to the SMMUSD District Office at 1651 16th St. with attention to Sarah Wahrenbrock. The deadline is Friday, Nov. 1.
