Could you design the new AustMS logo?

The leading society representing the mathematics profession in Australia is about to undergo a rebrand – and we need your help! 

Mathematics is an incredibly broad topic to cover and we are having difficulty refining exactly what symbols and design elements represent the AustMS’s member base (i.e. you) and mathematics in general. So we’re asking for your help to come up with some ideas to use as a starting point to develop a new visual identity for AustMS.

You can submit a polished design with beautiful colours, or simply describe your idea with a quick sketch and some dot points – we don’t mind. All we ask is something that embodies what the AustMS and mathematics represent to you.

The winner will have the opportunity to work with us here at Miscible to develop, refine and transform their idea into a brand rollout for the AustMS and its members.

Please submit all designs/docs via email to molly@miscible.co and office@austms.org.au.

Entries close on September 15, 2022.

Good luck!
