Request for Proposals: Brand Development & Strategy for New College/University Unifying Johnson State College & Lyndon State College
Lyndon State College (LSC) and Johnson State College (JSC), two of the five institutions comprising the Vermont State College system, are being unified into one new institution with two distinct campuses effective July 2018. As of this writing, the name of the new institution is yet to be decided.
This consolidation requires a new institutional presence, including visual identity and website, that that unites the two colleges under a common administration and mission while both 1) promoting the expanded opportunities and strengths inherent in the unification and 2) maintaining the ability of each campus (Lyndon and Johnson) to distinguish itself in terms of its unique campus culture, environment and programs.
We are seeking proposals from qualified, full-service agencies for 1) brand research and development; 2) a comprehensive website design and strategy for our new institution that conveys excitement and seriousness of purpose in the delivery of high-quality education in the liberal arts and professional programs; and 2) design and graphic identity recommendations for our print publications. The chosen firm will be charged with achieving these deliverables through an inclusive process that incorporates ideas and feedback from stakeholders at LSC and JSC.
Deadline for proposals is 4 p.m. Wednesday, December 14, 2016. Read the full RFP.
