Change The Future

Make a difference that lasts a lifetime

What is the 67 Logos Designathon?

67 Logos is an Over The Rainbow initiative, launched in 2018 to design 67 logos for 67 small businesses – all in one day – Mandela Day, 18 July 2022.

For many small businesses, owning an expertly designed logo is an ever-elusive goal. We wanted our initiative to have lasting impact and to help these entrepreneurs stand out in the South African market.

The effect of COVID-19 on the economy and small businesses means this is now more important than ever! Let’s unite through the power of design to make a difference.

67 Logos Campaign Design | Over The Rainbow

Online. One day. 67 logos.

This is how it works:

  1. Apply as a designer offering your skills or apply as a small business looking for a professional logo.
  2. Designers are matched with businesses, based on their profiles, passions and experience.
  3. Designers receive their brief via email and liase directly with their matched businesses to design the logo in their own time and submit it by midnight on 17 July.
  4. On Mandela Day, 18 July, designers and businesses will join us for an online webinar to reveal the exciting logos.
