[Cancelled] Announcing Our New Logo Design Contest http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/index.php/announcing-our-new-logo-design-contest/ http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/index.php/announcing-our-new-logo-design-contest/#comments Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:09:25 +0000 Joe McDonald http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/?p=342 We have decided to pull the plug on our logo design contest. Thank you to everyone that contributed a design concept so far. After reviewing feedback we received from the online design community, we felt it was better to discontinue and cancel the contest. We consulted several designers as well as the AIGA to arrive at this decision.

The general consensus from the design community is that contests cheapen and hurt the industry as a whole and accepting work for free in the hopes of being compensated later is wrong. When we first launched our logo design campaign, we truly were just trying to have a fun contest that would bring in a wide and diverse group of talented designers to create a fresh and new logo for us. It was not intended to be a “branding relaunch” as we incorrectly stated. We thought that using a popular service like 99designs.com was credible and acceptable and would allow entry level designers to compete for a chance to earn $300. I feel contests are appropriate for some circumstances, but probably not for a logo. As with all art forms, graphic design is a professional and skilled trade that people who dedicate themselves to should be compensated for.

As an art organization ourselves that is part of the wider design community, we respect the views of everyone and we value input, even if our feathers get a little ruffled along the way [sorry @HelloMelendez :) ] We felt the spirit of our contest was pure and at no point did we intend or even consider that our contest would offend members of the community. For the record, SeattleArtists.com has graphic designers on staff and is a division of a larger creative web agency. We get it.

So, that being said, our logo design contest is official dead. We will review our future plans and consider alternatives for getting new designs in the future and may hold a call for portfolio submissions from which we can hire a talented designer for us.

Again, we thank everyone who gave us feedback and helped to guide us in making this decision.

Cheers!
Joe McDonald
Founder

SIFF’s Upcoming ‘Czech That Film Festival’ + Win 2 Free Screening Tickets http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/index.php/siffs-upcoming-czech-that-film-festival-win-2-free-screening-tickets/ http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/index.php/siffs-upcoming-czech-that-film-festival-win-2-free-screening-tickets/#comments Fri, 27 Jun 2014 23:06:43 +0000 Joe McDonald http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/?p=322 SIFF-Czech2014_940x157

SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) is celebrating the newest and greatest films from Czech cinema at the "Czech That Film Festival", running July 11-13th.

Seattle has a rich history of great film festivals and we love to support them. Here’s your chance to support them too!

Enter to win 2 free tickets! SIFF has graciously provided us with a pair of tickets to screen the film, Like Never Before, on Saturday July 12th at 2:30pm. Under-appreciated painter Vladimír Holas created many beautiful works, and never sold out to the previous Communist regime. Not wishing to live out his final days in a sterile hospital, he makes his final refuge at his summer home in the picturesque countryside, attended to by both a vulgar but lovable bohemian artist and his former lover.

 SIFF-LikeNeverBefore_400X222

To enter to win 2 free tickets to the screening, just enter your email address in the form below and click the big green button.

Don’t forget to share! Receive additional chances to win with each time you share our giveaway on social media.

Save on more tickets! For those of you who want to Czech out (couldn’t resist) the rest of the films in the festival, use the promo code CZECH14 to get $3 off any general admission tickets purchased online, over the phone, or at the box office. Unfortunately, this promo code will not work for Like Never Before because it is a matinee screening.

Help support the local Seattle film scene.

Canon In Action Photography Tour & Educational Roadshow Hits Seattle This Weekend http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/index.php/canon-in-action-photography-tour-educational-roadshow-hits-seattle-this-weekend/ http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/index.php/canon-in-action-photography-tour-educational-roadshow-hits-seattle-this-weekend/#comments Mon, 02 Jun 2014 20:56:32 +0000 Joe McDonald http://www.seattleartists.com/blog/?p=319 CIA_Banner

This weekend, June 7th & 8th, Canon is bringing their Canon in Action Tour to Seattle! The tour will be taught by Canon Explorers of Light Jack Reznicki and Jim Divitale, along with Amina Moreau of Stillmotion.
 
Jack is best known for his commercial work with companies like Hyatt and Time Magazine, as well as teaching at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. 
 
Jim’s digital photography is featured in magazines like Rangefinder and Professional Photographer and lectures at WPPI, Imaging USA, and Photoshop World.
 
Amina is the cofounder of Emmy Award-winning Stillmotion, whose client list includes Apple and CBS.
 
There is going to be a Saturday seminar and a few Sunday workshops on June 7th and 8th.
 
The Saturday seminar’s goal is to teach imaging essentials and help you understand and expand your creative options. Thoroughly understanding photography principles like ISO and aperture is essential to putting your photography ideas to practice. The Saturday seminar will cover lens choice, camera settings and features, light exposure, portraits, landscapes, HD video, and a whole lot more. We’ll learn quality vs. quantity of light, incorporating video into your image making process. Jack, Jim, and Amina are going to let you discover the possibilities in your camera so that you can discover the possibilities in your photography.
 
The Sunday workshop is an opportunity to practice your new skills, work with live models, and try out professional Canon equipment. We’re going to have interactive discussions and hands-on exercises so attendees will receive feedback for every milestone hit. The workshop is designed to give attendees the tools to create visually stunning and engaging videos and photography.

The photography portion of the workshop is going to let you practice the concepts of flash photography, like functions of Speedlites and ETTL. Since light can be unpredictable, Jim and Dave are going to work with the class on mastering light using flash.

Camera movement, audio capture, and shot sequencing are the main points the video portion of the workshop will cover. Filmmakers use this knowledge every day as the foundation to any well-made video.
 
It’s going to be a weekend packed with learning! Head over to CanonInAction.com and use the discount code CIAMZED10 for $10 off Saturday tickets!

You may recognize Henry’s work on the sides of many buildings and various structures around the Seattle, but this is his first time having his work feature in the apparel space. By collaborating with 1201 Apparel, all Henry’s tees and prints sold at www.1201apparel.com will contribute $5.00 directly to One Day’s Wages to aid their efforts in alleviating extreme global poverty.

1201 was first born out of a “desire to facilitate generous giving by combining local art, culture, and style.” The brand seeks to produce apparel featuring the designs and work of local artists, but also strives to benefit the same community that shapes them. For their first line, 1201 and Henry have joined together to produce great classic tees which showcase the fun, emotion-evoking characters of their partner artist’s work.

The brand prides themselves on being very “artist-centered” and makes a great attempt to make the work of the artist the centerpiece of their online showcase. At www.1201apparel.com, all visitors are able to read up on the featured artist and non-profit partner, as well as browse through the many Henry works that can be seen on-site. Currently, the apparel can only be purchased on the brand’s site alongside many exclusive replica print options.

1201 Apparel’s main objective is to “spread great local art and style while befitting worthy causes.” Make sure to be part of the movement and shop the full selection of Henry featured product.
