Newman University students have been given the opportunity to win up to $100. The catch? Help create a logo for the National Geomantic Survey (NGS).
Longtime NGS member of 10 years Morris (Mo) Floyd, Newman’s director of security, has paired up with the Visual Arts Club to help make a modernized logo for NGS. “NGS has been around for around 20 years and is still using the same basic logo” Floyd explained. “Ron Pastore, the president of NGS and a double Newman graduate, would like something updated”.
Floyd shared the history of the NGS group saying, “NGS made a special for the History Channel around nine years ago called ‘Jesse James’ Hidden Treasure’ that was filmed here in Kansas. There are current plans to film another special or two and the rebranding will help showcase NGS as a group. The logo can be used for updating NGS’s image potentially on a national and global level. NGS would use the logo for patches, shirts, caps, letterhead, business cards, vehicle markings, etc.”
Students can submit up to three designs for consideration. Another Q&A with Pastore will be held on March 21 – contact the Visual Arts Club for more information. A deadline will be given by the Visual Arts Club and all submissions will go through them.
The first place winner will receive a $100 cash prize and second place will receive a $50 cash prize. The two winning designs will become the property of NGS for their use and benefit. All cash prizes are given by NGS and its members.
