Logo Design Competition for Libraries in Wales

October 11, 2021

Calling all HE Students in Wales! You are invited to create a new logo for the ‘Libraries Wales’ brand, which will complement the redesigned website, and reflect the vital role libraries play in our communities.

The libraries.wales website has been created and designed as part of the Welsh Government’s support for libraries. It is a ‘one stop portal’ for libraries in Wales – you can get information about what’s happening in libraries, browse a wide range of online resources, locate your nearest library & join online, find out about initiatives supporting health, teens, children & families, join a reading group, use the enquiry service and more.

The new logo should be vibrant and easily recognisable, reflecting the aim of the existing Universal Library Offers to connect communities, improve wellbeing and promote equality through learning, literacy and cultural activity.

  • Culture and Creativity
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Information and Digital
  • Reading

The new logo will need to complement & enhance the current website:

https://libraries.wales (English)       

https://llyfrgelloedd.cymru (Welsh)

and will appear on the following social media sites, & promotional material.

  • Facebook @librarieswales @llyfrgelloeddcymru
  • Twitter @LibrariesWales & @LlyfrgellCymru
  • Instagram @librarieswales

The current versions of the logo can be viewed on the Staff Toolkit section of the website, where the new logo will also become available.

Our target audience includes anyone wishing to find out more about library services across Wales, including the Digital Resources and new features such as ‘Author of the Month’ and ‘Teen Blog’. Users will also visit the website to find out about initiatives that promote engagement with libraries, literacy and reading in Wales.

The Competition will be launched officially during Libraries Week (4-10 October 2021), and entries will be accepted from 4 October 2021. The competition will close Monday 17 January 2022 at 5pm, and the winner announced on or before 31 January 2022.
