Exit 15 Exit 15 is a partnership programme between Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and Voluntary Arts Ireland working with people and organisations living, working and based in the Ballyogan area. It is funded under the Arts Council’s Invitation to Collaboration Scheme 2017 and Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. Engagement is at the heart of this programme with emphasis on how to design cultural programmes that are responsive to and involve input from local people from the very start. We're inviting local people to help create the logo for the Exit 15 Creative Space. The winner will be decided by a panel of local people and the winning logo will be digitalised and be part of the promotion and branding of the project. A few tips The logo should reflect the ethos of the project The logo should be simple, strong and distinctive in its own right- it will be used separately to the website, e.g. in adverts, reports and other promotional materials Do remember that a logo often has to be used at small sizes and alongside other logos, so don’t try to make it too complicated as this detail will be lost when it is reduced to fit The logo can either be hand-drawn and then scanned, or designed on professional design software (Adobe CS or similar vector-based drawing software) Please note that the logo you create will be treated as a concept and – if necessary – may have to be adapted by designers to make it fully suitable for use on the website and promotional materials. Terms and conditions What is this and who is it for: It is an invite to the local community of the exit 15 area to help design a logo idea for the Exit 15 project.
