    We are planning to update our logo and would like to draw on the considerable talents of our members to come up with a snazzy new logo. Use your talents and creativity to design up to three new logos for our Board to whittle down to a few choices to be voted on by our members.

    Register using this event and upload up to three images in JPG or JPEG format (less than 200x200 pixels, 72 DPI). For some ideas on how to design a logo, click here. There are several free logo design apps available and several are mentioned in the article at the previous link. You can also use Photoshop, Procreate or another similar app, or even just sketch something and take a picture with your phone.

    For ideas on other pastel society logos, visit the IAPS member societies page here. Be sure to also visit the IAPS Home page where you can see the stunning Prix de Pastel award winning painting by our own Christine Swann for a recent web show..
