Our Organization

This year, we're designing a logo in a day for Portland in Color, a local organization working to disrupt the homogeneity of representation in Portland arts and media by highlighting the voices and experiences of people of color. In alignment with Portland in Color’s mission to support paid work for artists and creatives of color, we’ll be offering an honorarium for our DET winners.

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.

We welcome participants of all races, genders, religions, abilities, and orientations. Everyone that comes in a spirit of listening and collaborating is invited, no matter their identity or background.

Visible wholeheartedly supports Portland In Color’s mission to fairly compensate artists of color for creative work. As a volunteer-based organization, we also believe in promoting pro-bono work within the design industry to encourage creative professionals who benefit from privilege to contribute and directly support underrepresented communities.

We have provided an honorarium for the winning logo. If for any reason this does not hold value for our winner, after the event, they're more than welcome to donate their prize in support of Portland in Color.
