FRASER VALLEY GILBERT & SULLIVAN SOCIET Y | Undergoes Big Changes

Re-branding Means Opportunity For Visual Artists

The FVG&SS Annouced Significant Changes To Their Society At April VGM {Virtual General MEeting]

We will always remain the Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society of BC. There is no notion whatsoever of changing our real name or our bylaws. As recounted too many times before our society has great difficulty in attracting interest to a G&S show but more mainstream musical theatre keeps us financially viable. So here we go, one brave foot in front of the other.

Once we officially re-brand we will be dropping GS in favour of MT and branding ourselves as FVMT or Fraser Valley Musical Theatre. This will be a process of many months in order to get it right. It first started with setting our Values, kind of a mission statement in point form. These are reprinted below in case you would like quick refresher. Next up was defining not the logo itself but how it is to be used and what it should represent. Check! You can also see that below.

Now we are on to the logo itself and for that, we wish to engage a graphic artist to develop our look and logo. The details of the call and the modest compensation package are detailed below. We are expecting this portion of the journey will take a few months. Once we are there, it will be time to expand the look and come up with an implementation strategy. More on that in future issues.

CALL FOR ARTIST: Logo Development Required

As described above we are looking for interested Graphic Artists that are willing to develop the logo and look for FVMT (Fraser Valley Musical Theatre) The process is in three steps.

1. Call for Artists. Interested Artists should submit their name, a brief summary of their professional experience and reference any works they may care to highlight.

2. Based upon the submissions the Board will choose a short list of no more than three artists. Each artist will be offered $200 to develop and conceptualize a logo and branding scheme for presentation to the Board.

3. Once the winning concept is agreed upon by the Board, the winner would be offered an additional $400 to complete the logo designs in all of its forms with all the rights becoming the property of our Society.
This opportunity is open to all members and non-members. So please feel free to pass this on.

Steps:
-Call for Graphic Artists: Now until April 19th
-Concept design period
-Final design period
-Completion

Please send your submissions to Leigh Burton at cat8canoe@gmail.com

FVG&SS: Defining the Logo
Primary uses of the Logo

• Our Websites FVGSS & FVMT
• The Patter
• Press releases
• Poster – yes, along with any show logos
• emails
• T-shirts- seldom if ever, mostly for show logos

The logo should reflect (in order of importance)
1. High Quality Shows (e.g. we can be every bit as good as the Arts Club)
2. We Are Musical Theatre
3. Fun
4. Family friendly
5. Modern, meaning in keeping with the current times but not futuristic

Colours
• Colours that relate to a wide audience.
• Logo would normally be in full colour but capable of monochromatic reproduction.
