RUSS is a hard worker! He went way above and beyond to give us the design options we needed. He is clearly talented and reliable. He was also extremely timely. He responded to change requests practically before I was done typing them. And he had the final files ready in less than 30 minutes from when we chose his design as the winner. I hope to use him for other art projects in the future.
How JobsfortheFuture started their logo design journey
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The Industrial Manufacturing Technician apprenticeship, a program developed with support from the U.S. Department of Labor H1B Technical Skills Training grant, skills up entry-level manufacturing production workers. Through the Technical Skills Training grant, the IMT apprenticeship has been registered with the U.S. Office of Apprenticeship as well as with the Wisconsin and Minnesota Bureaus of Apprenticeship, and 130 apprentices employed at 15 manufacturing firms that are piloting the training in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan.
This hybrid/competency-based apprenticeship provides 3,000 hours of on-the-job and related classroom instruction that includes preparation for the four MSSC Certified Production Technician certificates and up to 10 college credits in advanced manufacturing skills. Employers are finding that the IMT apprenticeship not only improves productivity and reduces waste, but also prepares workers for highly technical advanced skill apprenticeships, such as pattern makers or maintenance technicians for which there are significant skills shortages.
Jobs for the Future is currently doing a brand refresh. Follow this link to have an idea of where the brand is going and for the type of aesthetic we are looking for in this logo (feel free to play with any color or design ideas you might have. This is just more inspiration and not a definitive guide for what we want to see out of this logo design): http://center4apprenticeship.jff.org/
The logo needs to be clean and professional with a modern feel. Abstract & geometric work is fine. Nothing hand drawn or too playful. :)
