SSU Nature Preserves Offer $250 Award for Best Logo Design

fairfield01.jpggalbreath.jpgWhile a picture is worth a thousand words, a new logo design is worth more than just words, it is worth $250. Throughout the next several weeks, The SSU Field Stations and Nature Preserves will be taking proposals for a new logo design.

The logo competition is open to students, faculty, staff, and community members. Submissions are due by April 16 at 5 p.m.

The SSU Preserves manages two natural areas in Sonoma and Mendocino counties, the Fairfield Osborn Preserve and the Galbreath Wildlands Preserve. These Preserves are research and educational resources for the entire SSU campus and community.

The SSU Preserves encourage logo ideas to centralize around their current themes of nature, science/art, and connections. Reflection of strong brand and the long-term development of the Preserves mission statement is key to a quality logo.

Jurors are looking for logos that will gain quick visual recognition among students, researchers, community members, donors, and collaborators. For further information on the details of what is expected of submissions, visit
