Calling All Artists—Help Sustainable Moorestown Find a Logo

The nonprofit organization needs a face and is looking for the public's help.

Fancy yourself an artist? Sustainable Moorestown is looking for a logo and could use your help.

Sustainable Moorestown is a relatively new nonprofit organization in town, focused on green initiatives and other efforts designed to enhance the community’s sustainability.

The group is asking anyone with an interest to submit a logo design that will help make Sustainable Moorestown easily recognizable, and at the same time convey what the group is all about. The logo should reflect the three principles of sustainability, which can be summarized as: social equity, economic vitality and environmental quality.  

The contest is open to anyone—resident, student or business—who wishes to submit a design. The group will review the submissions and decide which one best conveys its mission and goals. The winning entry will be announced and the designer given public recognition.

To get you started, here’s their mission statement:

Sustainable Moorestown seeks to encourage cost-effective actions and coalitions where wise resource management and collaborative partnerships promote the growth, health, and vitality of Moorestown while protecting and enhancing the township’s environment for today and generations to come.

The logo may be submitted in any form (.pdf, .jpeg, hand-drawn on paper, etc.).

Submissions should be sent to:               

Sustainable Moorestown
c/o Township of Moorestown
2 Executive Drive, Suite 9
Moorestown, NJ 08057

Or email sustainablemoorestown@moorestown.nj.us.

The deadline for submissions is March 31. A winner will be chosen by April 15.

Questions may be emailed to the address indicated above or call 856-235-2992.

Sustainable Moorestown should support local graphic artists by paying one of them to design a logo, instead of trying to get artists to work for them for free.

How many attorneys, contractors, printers, phone companies and utility companies are giving away their services for free? Support social equity and economic vitality by paying for professional services.

Sustainable Moorestown should watch this video of writer Harlan Ellison. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mj5IV23g-fE

Instead of enlisting people who "fancy themselves as artists," why not "sustain" a local designer by hiring them to do a professional logo?

Pay the original artist to make an iteration of that green and yellow device already finished for the state level, with the word JERSEY removed, and the hex value of the green he used on the words. Then use Microsoft Word to type in MOORESTOWN in Arial Black, all caps. The first variation will cost you. The next one won't.

A local nonprofit that uses the township mailing address and email?

Sustainable communities is linked to the UN's Agenda 21. It isn't something anyone who values their liberty and their property rights should donate to. Do an online search of UN Agenda 21and the "sustainable communities" initiative to see for yourself.

Steve Lubetkin has it right!

Small Town, USA also commented on Calling All Artists—Help Sustainable Moorestown Find a Logo. "Agenda 21 is a threat coming from the United Nations that is invading every city and town in the nation. It leads to control over private property, energy use, water use; it means government will control how hot your shower may be, how much air conditioning or heat you may use, controls on owning and using your car, controls on food production, controls on population growth, and so much more. The policy of Agenda 21 comes in many names, such as Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, historic preservation, diversity, open space, heritage areas and comprehensive planning. It all means locking away land, resources, higher prices, sacrifice and shortages and is based on the age old socialist scheme of redistribution of wealth. Moorestown is an umbrella under Sustainable NJ which is deeply rooted and tied to Agenda 21 and ICLEI. Please inform yourself just like several townships accross America have already done...

Good point, John Crest. I'm not sure that's legal.

I received a notice of Small Town, USA's post in my email, but it didn't show up here. I took it upon myself to re-post it in the interest of providing the information to Moorestown residents.
