NOMA members design. If you’re a member, we’re inviting you to design the future. You see, 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the existence of the National Organization of Minority Architects. The plans for celebrating this milestone call for equally impactful identity treatment. To that end the NOMA at 50 Taskforce has decided to call on its infinitely talented membership to lend their design expertise to the effort.

The logo will be used in all organization communications during the run-up to 2021 and beyond appearing in online, in print and on merchandise.

The best design submissions will consider: 50 years of existence, the twelve founders, the current thirty-one professional chapters, the current thirty-nine student chapters, countless iconic projects imagined and completed around the globe by NOMA members, countless communities impacted by NOMA’s programs and influence, and the need to celebrate these things.

The design must accommodate standing on its own as well as being a specific element for the Detroit Conference identity. The designers may choose to address or include the NOMA square, NOMA diamond, NOMA abbreviated or NOMA full marks as part of their creation.

All designs must demonstrate usage equally well in both full color and single color applications.
