TechTown Brand Update

Deadline for final submission of questions: Jan. 12, 2024

Submission deadline: Jan. 22, 2024

Project completion date: Nov. 1, 2024

Project background

TechTown will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2024 and will incorporate a special anniversary logo treatment (designed internally) to visually mark the milestone throughout the year. Following that anniversary year, TechTown will launch an updated brand (designed by a firm selected through this RFP process) that reflects the future vision for the organization and emphasizes its alignment with Wayne State University.

Tech Town’s current branding reflects its independent nonprofit status, and in the past, it has been paired with the Wayne State University logo in specific instances to emphasize the partnership between WSU and TechTown. The creation of a new brand framework presents an opportunity to more permanently and comprehensively illustrate the partnership through TechTown’s primary brand and the secondary brands for its individual programs, services and events.

Goal of the project

The goals for this project are to:

  • Develop a modern and compelling brand identity that reflects our mission, values, impact and relationship with Wayne State University.
  • Engage stakeholders – which may include staff, board members, donors, clients, tenants and the community – in the design process.

Ensure the new brand is adaptable for various media, including print, digital, and social platforms.
