The Architecture for Humanity Chicago is in the process of transitioning to a new role as a government-funded national chapter. As part of stepping up to this new challenge, the AFH-Chicago is seeking a new logo, and has posed the following competition to designers everywhere:
Brief: The redesign of the AFH Chicago Logo is a competition for 'branding' the Chicago Chapter with a new logo that will be used on all items issued by AFH Chicago. This is an open call for a logo that will represent the broader Architecture for Humanity Organization but a logo that also represents that this is a local chapter that is recognizable as a distinct chapter focused on local issues as well as the larger goals of the national organization.
