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

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 future 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.

Seeking highly-skilled graphic designers from the local area

MBF is seeking expressions of interest from highly skilled Graphic Designers based in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region and who have strong knowledge of typography, color, layout, and image manipulation to create a visually appealing logo and complementary brand element designs that clearly communicate Micro Business Forum's brand to our various audiences.

You will work closely with our marketing representative and committee executive teams to produce engaging design assets for print and digital, ensuring that all deliverables maintain a look and feel that is consistent with our brand.

Use of designs

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.

Fee-based design project

To support local designers, MBF will be awarding this project to a graphic designer based on the fees quoted and based on their ideas and sketches.

Project Award

The Executive Committee may conduct a discussion with the applicants. The decision of the award will be collectively made by MBF's Committee. All applicants will be notified of their decision.
