The Program in Early Cultures at Brown University solicited submissions for a logo. The logo should express the subject of a year-long Mellon Sawyer Seminar at Brown: “Animal Magnetism: The Emotional Ecology of Animals and Humans.” The successful logo is intended for use in all Seminar publicity, both on College Hill and elsewhere.
How humans live with animals and fold them into their emotional lives as pets, companions, and even family. The framework in time is the ancient world, from the Old World and New: Greece, Rome, South and Central America, China, Africa.
The submission encapsulates these deep ties of affection by graphic means. It should include the words, “Mellon Sawyer Seminar” and “Animal Magnetism.” Further, it should reference such ties in the ancient world, as inclusively as possible. The design should be bold, eye-catching, and legible.
