The European GNSS Agency, the operational arm of the European Commission for the EU Space Program, is on the hunt for forward thinking graphic designers and visual artists from across the EU to craft its new EUSPA logo — five finalists, one winner and up to €15k will be awarded. Ready to break the mold? Proposals should be submitted by August 14, 2020.
In the near future, the GSA will become the European Union Agency for the Space Program (EUSPA). This Agency will entrust the management of the full exploitation of Galileo and EGNOS, the EU satellite navigation systems, Galileo and EGNOS, the establishment of synergies for space data related to navigation and Earth Observation (EO), and also the setting up of governmental applications for telecommunications, space surveillance, security of infrastructure and cybersecurity. To mark this evolution, the agency has decided to rely on the talent of European graphic designers and visual artists, be it students, young professionals or established graphic design companies.
The EUSPA Logo Design Contest is encouraging fresh thinking and innovation. Participants are asked to submit up to two design proposals that will capture the quintessence of the Agency in a visually striking, aesthetically appealing logo. The ideal design will be simple, yet able to tell a story that encapsulates the activities of the Agency, but, most importantly, ensures brand recognition for EUSPA.
The logos will be evaluated by a jury composed of EU representatives and users, that will assess the clarity of the logo, its originality, and its graphic representation. Five design projects will be selected. The five winners will be invited to negotiate a Service Agreement with the GSA in order for the Agency to procure the logo. The winner will be announced by mid-October and could take home up to 15,000 Euros. Additionally, they will benefit from extensive promotion and media coverage.

“Europe boasts talented visual artists. We want to rely on their creativity. With this contest we want to give the opportunity to European designers to be part of our future, helping them to enrich their portfolios with a logo that will always be a point of reference for their career and support their European recognition. We’re looking for artists who will craft a powerful visual identity that will help this Agency stand out in a digitally disrupted era”, said Pascal Claudel, Acting Executive Director of the GSA.
