RESET Project Visual identity contest hero image

RESET Contest

The EU funded program "RESET: Redesigning Equality and Scientific Excellence Together" seeks to create its visual identity. We are on the hunt for forward thinking design & art students to design and build the brand and visual identity of the project.

RESET in few words ...

Let's reset Gender Equality in Research and in Scientific excellence together!

RESET (Redesigning Equality and Scientific Excellence Together) envisions a human-centric, inclusive and diversity respectful approach for an intersectional approach to gender equality, as an EU project, funded by the Horizon 2020, empowered by 7 pioneering Universities across six EU countries.

In the next four years, partners will join forces to co-design and implement Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) with intense inclusion of all institutional ecosystems (students, faculty, administration, authorities) to inspire, motivate, empower, transform, and sustain gender balance at all academic and scientific career stages!

More information regarding the project and its objectives could be found here.

RESET follows a student-rooted approach by opening its logo proposition to all Students from participating Partners’ Universities, with a transparent logo voting method.

The main goal of the project’s visual identity is to highlight gender equality and balance in research and excellence.

Regarding the slogan we motivate students to use the main title of the project: Redesigning Equality and Scientific Excellence Together. We suggest students reuse this sentence or design the logo using some of the words. However, if they have any other suggestions with shorter sentences as a slogan, they are acceptable. They need to be clear and consistent and highlight the main idea of the project which is the Gender Balance in the academic community.

The RESET team has the right to demand from the award-winning creator additional specific applications of the visual identity of RESET for the correct and complete implementation of its proposal, based on the needs of the project.
