Shape Blaze – Rebrand design project

December 14, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - January 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am

Are you a young creative interested in branding? Are you a budding designer and want to gain industry experience?

Blaze is looking for 26 young people aged 16-30 from across the North West to shape Blaze’s new branding! We are offering 26 places to develop our new branding alongside professional designer Millie Davis. You will shape the look and feel of Blaze moving forward!


Why get involved?

  • To learn new skills about branding including font making, editorial design and creating a brand guideline.
  • Be part of co-designing the new Blaze brand
  • Work with a professional and gain advice
  • See your work and vision brought to life in tactile applications
  • Meet and work with like-minded individuals
  • Great experience to add to your CV, attending college, university or for future employers.
  • To be creative and have fun!

Who are we looking for?  

Blaze’s vision is to see a more diverse art sector where more young people from low socioeconomic backgrounds have jobs in the arts. We are particularly interested in supporting people often marginalised from the arts including: working class people, disabled people, People of South, East and South East Asian heritage, People of African or Caribbean heritage, Irish Traveller heritage and Latinx heritage.


How long will the project last?  

The project will run from January- March 2021. It will run online using Zoom video calling. It is not too much of a commitment however if you are interested there’s more options to be more involved and to learn about specific aspects.
