Design a new N.E.A. Logo

The National Endowment for the Arts is soliciting submissions for its new logo "Art Works." On Monday, the N.E.A. and Rocco Landesman, its chairman, announced that they were seeking proposals for a new logo to represent the phrase “Art Works,” which Mr. Landesman has previously described as the agency’s “guiding mission.” In a statement Mr. Landesman said the logo, which will be used in print and online promotions, should represent the three meanings of the phrase: the creation of artists; the effect of art on audiences; and the contribution of artists to the economy. Proposals for the design must be submitted by email to the agency by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Feb. 26, and the selected proposal will receive a government grant of approximately $25,000.

The notion that the NEA of all organizations would resort to asking professional design firms for spec work is disturbing. It shows a serious lack of understanding of how the design process works when it is expected to produce stellar work.

You should not submit ideas for free. They can interview firms and pick the best fit. (And three weeks is not enough time.)
