Water Purification Project Call for Artists

  1. South Jordan City Call for Graphic Artists

    Request for Work Examples

    INITIAL APPLICATION DEADLINE: 

    Sunday, June 30, 2022 (See full timeline below)

    COMMISSION BUDGET: 

    Budget range is $8,000 - $15,000 for entire project.

    PROJECT BACKGROUND:

    The City of South Jordan is looking for a graphic artist to design for 5 3’x5’ informational signs, a 6’x6’ overview sign, a 10’x10’ selfie station background as well as decorative paneling that is approximately 100’x3’ (divided into sections).

    The purpose of this project is to educate the public about the water purification process and to make it fun for both kids and adults alike. The idea is to liven up the facility, so color is welcome. This would have some infographic elements, some elements that include nature scenes – Utah mountains, reservoirs, the water cycle, with images that promote thoughts of pure, clean, sustainable water.

    This project will include multiple phases:

    1. Interested artists submit examples of work by June 30, 2022.
    2. City selects top artists by July 6, 2022, at which point they will be given a vision by City to do a draft sketch/concept to be compensated in the amount of $1500 each.
    3. Artists submit sketch/concept by July 20, 2022 for review.
    4. City selects top artist by July 22, 2022 to submit a proposed budget. If acceptable, City will contract with artist for project.
    5. Design to be submitted to City by August 5, 2022.
