LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:

The University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI) is

a multicampus research unit of the UC Office of the President, serving

all ten campuses in the UC system. Recognized nationally and

internationally, the Institute promotes collaborative work

representing different fields and institutions both within and beyond

the University of California. UCHRI addresses topics traditional to

the humanities in disciplines such as literature, philosophy,

classics, languages, and history, as well as the pressing human

dimensions that arise in the social and natural sciences, technology,

art, medicine, and the professions. Stressing interdisciplinary

research, UCHRI bridges gaps between disciplines across the humanities

and human sciences and seeks to overcome the intellectual and

institutional barriers that can separate the humanities from other

fields.

The Institute interacts with UC campus humanities centers and with

individual faculty to promote collaborative, interdisciplinary

humanities research and pedagogy throughout the UCs and within the

larger communities they inhabit. Each year UCHRI hosts research groups

in residence, initially soliciting proposals for group projects and

subsequently seeking fellows whose work will contribute to and be

enhanced by the Institutes unique collaborative environment. A wide

range of conferences, seminars, workshops and other research projects

throughout the UC system are also supported by UCHRI. In general, the

Institute is characterized by its convenings: research groups,

networks, collaborations, and other innovative ways of scholars

working together.

To learn more about the Institute, visit our website at

www.uchri.org. Note that UCHRI is a founding member of HASTAC (the

Humanities, Arts, Science and Technology Advanced Collaboratory) at www.hastac.org

and co-administers the MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and

Learning Competition (www.dmlcompetition.net). HASTAC recently

competed its logo through Crowdspring; to see the results of that

competition, click on http://www.crowdspring.com/projects/grap...

. UCHRIs intellectual sphere is broader than digital technology, but

it is an important component of our program.

HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:

We need a new logo design that will be used on all collateral

materials and on our website. The design should highlight the

innovative, collaborative nature of the Institute in a compelling

image or icon.

OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:

Our design should appeal to an audience of faculty, students, digital

innovators, researchers, and the general public.

WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:

We absolutely must have (or we don't want to see) this in our design:

We absolutely must have a design that is fresh, modern, compelling and

appropriate. The logo must be accompanied by the acronym UCHRI and we

would also like to see a treatment that integrates the logo with the

full name, the UC Humanities Research Institute. We are open in

terms of color palette, font choice, and other such aesthetic

considerations. We invite you to put on your creative hat, think out

of the box, and come up with an iconic image that captures this lively

and dynamic organization.
