In the vein of our City Works Poster Series, we’ve gotten word on two great opportunities for civically-minded graphic designers, with deadlines fast approaching.
The City of Portland, Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) seeks “proposals from individuals, firms, teams or designers, hereafter called “Proposer(s),” with demonstrated experience in infographic design.” Designers are needed to develop infographics that convey concepts and themes from the City of Portland’s Portland Plan to the general public.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, December 21 at 4PM. The anticipated cost for the services is $17,000 [sic!]. Access the RFP here. For questions, e-mail: Julia.Thompson@portlandoregon.gov.
GOOD Ideas for Cities is coming to Portland and seeks “Portland-based designers, artists, architects, thinkers, makers, urban planners, writers, teachers, gardeners, entrepreneurs and more to tackle an urban challenge relevant to the Portland community.” The project hosts live events to facilitate a dialogue about how to make our cities better places to live.
