The River Styx Logo Could Be Your Design

Big River Association is pleased to announce an opportunity for students, faculty, and local designers to create a new branding logo for River Styx and its community programs.

 River Styx invites artists to submit up to three pieces for free via Submittable.

The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2018.

The logo should be able to be printed in black and white for consistency across various media.

For inspiration, please visit River Styx’s website for the original logo, cover art, writing, and overall aesthetics.

People often associate the magazine with Cerberus or a literary explorer, but editors are open to new interpretations to update the logo while still connecting with the magazine’s long history.

River Styx will pay a flat fee for all copyrights to the logo and will begin using the design for Issue 100 and beyond.

If chosen, the artist must provide appropriate files, including a vector version of the logo.

For questions about this submission call, please contact Christina Chady at christina.chady@riverstyx.org.
