Announcing Our New Logo Design Contest!

by Joe McDonald on October 21, 2014

It’s LONG overdue, but we are excited to announce our design contest for a new SeattleArtists.com logo! Be part of our new re-branding campaign and submit your concept at 99designs. The winning designer will receive $300 as well as various promotions through our community pages.

Visit 99designs to learn more at http://99d.me/c/95s5.

SeattleArtists.com was launched 15 years ago in 1999 to provide local artists with a way to showcase their work and use digital technology to help promote and discover the hidden talent of the Pacific Northwest and Seattle art communities. Over the years our community has continued to grow but we’ve been a bit behind the times on re-freshing our own identity. So now is the time to modernize our look!

We’re looking for new concept designs that reinforce our strong connection to the great city of Seattle and highlight some of the iconic symbols, while staying loyal to our art roots.

We’re so excited to see what our new look will be.

For more information and to submit your own design concept, visit http://99d.me/c/95s5.

SIFF-Czech2014_940x157

SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) is celebrating the newest and greatest films from Czech cinema at the "Czech That Film Festival", running July 11-13th.

Seattle has a rich history of great film festivals and we love to support them. Here’s your chance to support them too!

Enter to win 2 free tickets! SIFF has graciously provided us with a pair of tickets to screen the film, Like Never Before, on Saturday July 12th at 2:30pm. Under-appreciated painter Vladimír Holas created many beautiful works, and never sold out to the previous Communist regime. Not wishing to live out his final days in a sterile hospital, he makes his final refuge at his summer home in the picturesque countryside, attended to by both a vulgar but lovable bohemian artist and his former lover.

To enter to win 2 free tickets to the screening, just enter your email address in the form below and click the big green button.

Don’t forget to share! Receive additional chances to win with each time you share our giveaway on social media.

Save on more tickets! For those of you who want to Czech out (couldn’t resist) the rest of the films in the festival, use the promo code CZECH14 to get $3 off any general admission tickets purchased online, over the phone, or at the box office. Unfortunately, this promo code will not work for Like Never Before because it is a matinee screening.

Help support the local Seattle film scene.

Seattle artist and muralist, Henry, has teamed up with 1201 Apparel to release a collection of exclusive graphic tees featuring his work, which benefit the locally founded non-profit organization One Day’s Wages. You may recognize Henry’s work on the sides of many buildings and various structures around the Seattle, but this is his first time having his work feature in the apparel space. By collaborating with 1201 Apparel, all Henry’s tees and prints sold at www.1201apparel.com will contribute $5.00 directly to One Day’s Wages to aid their efforts in alleviating extreme global poverty.

1201 was first born out of a “desire to facilitate generous giving by combining local art, culture, and style.” The brand seeks to produce apparel featuring the designs and work of local artists, but also strives to benefit the same community that shapes them. For their first line, 1201 and Henry have joined together to produce great classic tees which showcase the fun, emotion-evoking characters of their partner artist’s work.

The brand prides themselves on being very “artist-centered” and makes a great attempt to make the work of the artist the centerpiece of their online showcase. At www.1201apparel.com, all visitors are able to read up on the featured artist and non-profit partner, as well as browse through the many Henry works that can be seen on-site. Currently, the apparel can only be purchased on the brand’s site alongside many exclusive replica print options.

1201 Apparel’s main objective is to “spread great local art and style while befitting worthy causes.” Make sure to be part of the movement and shop the full selection of Henry featured product.
