#DrakeServes Design Contest

The Office of Community Engaged Learning & Service is looking for a creative student to design an image for a new volunteer campaign called #DrakeServes. The idea behind the campaign is to build awareness of Drake student involvement in the community and provide a unified image when students participate in Drake sponsored community engagement initiatives in Des Moines.

The design contest is open to the entire campus community. Design entries must be submitted by Friday March 9th to servicelearning@drake.edu (include original file and PDF/JPG). Designers can submit more than one design! The artist whose design is selected will work with staff of Community Engaged Learning & Service and University Communications the week of March 19th to finalize their design. The selected designer will have their image printed on 1,000 t-shirts and receive a $50 gift card!

Design Requirements:

  • Design to be used on a solid blue background (tshirt) as well as on white (for print)
  • Include hashtag #DrakeServes
  • Use any color combination of following palette: Drake Blue, Cyan Blue, White, or Yellow
  • Make it “Feel” Drake, use of bulldogs (image or words), paw prints, etc. is encouraged!
  • Include the Des Moines skyline or image of a Des Moines bridge

Contact servicelearning@drake.edu for any questions.
