Would you like an internship at one South Africa’s two leading creative agencies 140 BBDO in Cape Town and Net#work BBDO in Johannesburg?
Would you like your design to be our new logo and brand?
Today we launch a public competition to redesign our logo. Open to all Communication Design students in South Africa, the winner stands to win a three month unpaid internship with a top South African creative advertising agency, 140 BBDO in Cape Town or Net#work BBDO in Johannesburg.
Originating in the UK, Live launched in South Africa in 2011 as a youth-run media platform where all content for our quarterly printed magazine, website and YouTube channel is produced entirely by South Africans aged 18 to 25 under professional mentorship.
Live SA Founder Gavin Weale says Live SA Magazine has been in production for almost two years with seven awesome issues produced. “Our contributors have shown a keen desire to now evolve the brand and take the Live SA identity to the next level, and the only way to ensure our brand speaks to young South Africans is to hand the task over to them.”
“Live SA is not just about young people producing content for our magazine and online platforms. After their three months with us, contributors have moved on to amazing career opportunities with partners like e.tv, eNCA, the British Council, 140 BBDO and Media 24. In only 18 months, more than 50 young people have moved into work from Live SA, and many of these to the creative industries.”
“We’re excited to have both 140 BBDO and Net#work BBDO come on board to offer this opportunity of a lifetime for the competition winner. The internship will not only help the winner get their foot in the door in a competitive industry, but will also expose them to on the job training under the mentorship of experienced advertising professionals.”
“The new Live SA logo will need to become the symbol, mark and signature that best identifies Live SA as a company and youth brand. It will need to be distinctive, practical, graphic and simple in form. The new logo should make young people grab the magazine, visit our website or Facebook page, and tell everyone they know about it,” says Gavin.
