Request for proposals – New Logo for IASNR
The current IASNR logo was first implemented in the mid-1990s and has been a useful way to represent our community across the decades. However, with advancement of scholarly ideas and social issues, the time has come to retire the current logo and create a new one for the organization that reflects our values and purpose.
The purpose of IASNR is to provide a professional association to support the integration of social and natural sciences to develop research and application strategies pertaining to environmental and natural resource issues. See the IASNR website for more details on the organization. Specifically, the aims of IASNR are to:
IASNR sponsors an annual face-to-face conference hosted by various universities across the world. We also host periodic science workshops and this year is coordinating an online mini-conference to enhance the accessibility of ideas and dialogue across our membership community. In addition, we administer the peer-reviewed journal Society and Natural Resources publishing six issues per year by Taylor & Francis. We also have a book press that publishes state-of-the-practice research volumes, edited volumes on timely topics, and monographs. Finally, IASNR is initiating a policy to develop hubs (or chapters) of IASNR across the globe to focus on regional issues of relevance that link society to natural resources and also to build professional networks between scholars, practitioners, students and stakeholder organizations. The latter activity reflects our concerted efforts to expand IASNR’s global focus.
A logo is a visual metaphor for our organization. Our logo should be flexible so that hubs could adapt it to represent themselves, if nothing more than to identify the regional hub below the logo. In addition, there could be shortened version of a logo that would be like a glyph to put on slides for a presentation. Purposes of the IASNR logo may include:
