Celebrating 45 Years of Cooperation!
In September this year Menomonie Market celebrates a milestone 45 years in business. The visual expression of our ‘brand’ has evolved dramatically over the years while our commitment to fresh, high quality foods/products, community building, and cooperation have stood consistently strong. Leafing through old copies of our newsletters reveals myriad iterations of our name and logos. Occasionally one of our staff or a long-time customer/owner will walk into the store with a unique and vintage looking MMFC design and those of us newer to the co-op express admiration and interest in the story behind the image. These earlier anniversary designs are inspiring interpretations and abstractions on brand elements from points in our history, reflecting the creativity of our staff and community.
Our expansion to the new store in 2015 included an overhaul of the brand – bringing MMFC boldly into the 21st century as a modern, forward thinking yet rooted organization. Our palette features modern, crisp colors to inspire associations with abundance, growth, and fresh vibrant produce – also a bit of wit and fun.
We are calling on you – visual artists of all stripes – to create a 45th anniversary t-shirt design that will be featured on fall apparel and worn for years by friends and community members near and far. Submissions will be voted on in the store and the winner will receive a $50 MMFC gift card and t-shirt with the winning design.
Please review the contest guidelines and brand elements/color palette. Further questions can be sent to email@example.com or give a call at 715.231.3663 x 215.
Deadline for submission is Monday, July 30th.
