Calling all creatives:

Let’s Innovate Through Education (LITE) is in search of a new logo that represents our non-profit’s mission to empower minority students through entrepreneurship and close the racial wealth gap! We are asking Memphis to help us capture what makes our city and organization so great.

We are offering $500 to the winner of this competition.

What we need:

We need a logo that communicates our vision and connects with the youth of Memphis. Please see our executive summary and brand guideline for inspiration.

Our current logo is a light bulb, which represents idea formation and how our students shine. We are open to continuing the light bulb theme, however, we are also interested in original, creative ideas aligned with our mission and programming. Our current color codes are #39a4c9 and #f3e848, but we are open to blues, greens, yellows, and oranges.

We are looking for a logo that has both an image and text, but with the capability to detach the image for use throughout our marketing materials. We prefer the text to only be our acronym, “LITE” and/or “LITE Memphis”.
