The Challenge

Create a logo in a day for OUT in Focus

OUT in Focus is a collaborative project aimed at increasing access to films which highlight diversity and inclusion.

Focused on establishing a greater depth of culture within Central Oregon through monthly screenings of recently released and lesser-known innovative films, OUT in Focus provides space for meaningful discussions and quarterly community gatherings. This event is proud to be inclusive, and proud to encourage discussion about topics in film that creatively engage core issues of queer identity – politics, history, culture, diversity, sexuality, family, aging, and coming-out issues.

Best practices

  • Use only open source typefaces (Google fonts, etc.) 

  • Participants must do a Google image search on any icons created to make sure that designs don’t already exist or infringe on copyright. 

  • Participants must include two versions of their final submission in the tournament Dropbox folder: one with outlined type, and one with live type. Package all files and include fonts. The size limit on individual files is 5MB.
