Call for Expressions of Interest for the design of MBF's new logo

Updated: Oct 22, 2019

Micro Business Forum is calling for expressions of interest from graphic designers to design our new logo.

Time for a new look

Micro Business Forum (MBF) started as "Home Based Business Club" in 2003. On 8 February 2008, it was called "Home Business Forum" (HBF). Later on, memberships broadened to include micro businesses with less than 5 employees or who are self employed. HBF was renamed as "Micro Business Forum" (MBF). The rebranding of MBF started on 22 February 2013.

It is time for a new look to reflect our 2020 strategic intent that MBF is Home of Entrepreneurs. MBF is a professional and the friendliest business network in town who pride themselves on providing education, networking and support to both start-ups and established micro-business owners so that they can learn, grow and succeed in their businesses.

MBF is seeking expressions of interest from Graphic Designers to design:

  • a fresh modern logo

  • graphic elements to complement the logo

Please note that this is a no fee project. The designer will be acknowledged and the designs selected will be promoted as described below.

These designs will be used on all online channels including website, social media, eMail marketing plus all printed materials like business cards, fliers and banners that will promote MBF.
