NFFTY seeks Brand Refresh Designer


The National Film Festival for Talented Youth is looking for a brand refresh that includes a brand guide and a set of graphic assets for use in both digital (web/social media) and video (motion graphics) that will create a consistent look and feel for the organization. Each year the festival picks a new theme. This project is the overall brand for the organization that will work in concert with the yearly festival theme. NFFTY’s logo is iconic, and we are not looking to change it at this time, though we are open to proposals for evolution within the visual language created through this refresh. Our tag line is “Film starts here”. Although we have “National” in our name and are based in the US, we are international in scope.


The Talented Youth (dba NFFTY) is a 501(c)3 media arts nonprofit based in Seattle, Washington with a global reach. Its mission is to advances and connects talented young filmmakers worldwide with the vision of creating a thriving and equitable film industry that uplifts and respects the voices of all youth. Our flagship program is NFFTY, the world’s largest youth film festival, annually screening over 250 films by filmmakers 24 years old and younger worldwide to audiences of more than 10,000. NFFTY also serves as an educational resource for young filmmakers, providing workshops, resources, and collaborative opportunities year-round. See website, IG @nfftyfilm, FB and Twittter @NFFTY.
