call for submissions: Station Identification

Taking inspiration from vintage television station identification graphics, I am inviting readers to create their own on-air graphic. If you had your very own network, what would the logo and branding be like? How would it express your personality and favourite content through the graphic?

Above is the station identification if UPPERCASE was a TV network devoted to the love of print (thus the cyan, magenta, yellow and black) with creative and curious programming. Also a nod to vintage aesthetics and Mad Men-era graphics and music! 

The idea for this open call emerged from one of the themes I'm exploring in the winter issue (January 2014) : broadcasting. I use the term loosely: "broadcasting" in the sense of sharing ideas graphically and publicly through posters, social media and public art. We will also have some articles about amateur ham radio, graphic novels and collecting vintage posters... 

Submit your graphic by November 15. The file should be 6 inches wide at 300dpi. (If you want extra credit and have animated your logo, please provide a link in the submission form.) Please upload your file here
