RFQ: Graphic Designer – CLOSED

GTACA is seeking a designer with a significant connection to Georgetown to create a basic style guide for use in wayfinding designs that encourage exploration of our neighborhood. Our goal is to make arts & culture offerings and spaces more visible, accessible, and easier to find for visitors, residents, and people with a connection to Georgetown, its built environment, and history. 

The designer will help us achieve a set of standards that define GTACA’s wayfinding branding and express an authentic look and feel for the signage, billboards, and other wayfinding solutions. This project is funded through a grant from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. 

Deliverables will include, but are not limited to:  

A style guide document for use in forthcoming physical signage, wayfinding, branding, and associated digital content. The guide will address the following: 

  • Typography, including font styles, sizes, and spacing
  • Logos, secondary logos, and icons
  • Color palettes, visual language 
  • Integration between print and digital media

Designs utilizing the completed style guide, including but not limited to: 

  • Billboards, mural designs
  • Maps
