Calling all Small Businesses!
Now announcing the Summit-University Logo Lab!
Calling all District 8 Small Business Owners! Do you need a logo? Does your business need to update its image? Do you want to learn about tools that you can use to help you with graphic design?
We are pleased to invite you to apply to participate in the Summit-University Logo Lab Cohort.
We will select 5 small businesses to participate in this group. Working together, the group will brainstorm and develop ideas for logos and provide each other with feedback and support.
Cohort participants will then work 1 on 1 with volunteer graphic designers to develop a basic logo.
The final step in this project is learning how to use their logo on easier to use graphic design programs, and begin creating social media posts, flyers, menus, and much more for their businesses. Participants will be provided with subscriptions to Canva.
It's time for the SUPC annual election. Find out who is running to join our board in your neighborhood and show your support!
