Portland Street Response Community Design Contest

Blog Post

If you could design your hopes for this new system, if you could design a hope for a system in which poor people are not overpoliced, if you could design that hope for a world where people get exactly the help they need and want — what would you design?⁠

Portland Street Response needs a logo.  In our survey of 184 unhoused people this past summer, many respondents emphasized that Portland Street Responders should have colored shirts and/or uniforms that are clearly distinguished from other first responders. So a new look is essential to gaining trust and de-escalating crisis situations.

Image removed.In order to tap into the creativity of Portlanders, housed and unhoused alike, we are asking for your ideas of a logo design. Send us your suggestion and if it is selected by our judges, you will win a cash prize! This logo contest starts, Friday Oct. 25 and ends Monday Nov. 11. The winners will be announced in the Friday, Nov. 15, edition of Street Roots.

There is an entry form with more information on the back page of the Oct. 25-31 issue of Street Roots.  You can also download  a PDF of the entry form from here.
