As part of our Autism Friendly Glasgow city centre, we would like to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of autism amongst Glaswegians and city centre businesses/organisations in the hope that this initiative will highlight the additional layer of support available for autistic people and their families.
To assist with this we will be designing a logo to promote the project and essentially become the ‘go to’ sign to highlight Autism Aware venues in the city centre. You’ll be able to see this logo out and about in the city centre on the windows of participating businesses.
To design the logo, and to encourage the lesson of inclusion, we are asking Glasgow schools; including early years, primary, secondary and ASL units to submit bright and colourful entries that will become instantly recognisable to city centre visitors. The winner will then spend time at GCC Graphics Department and see their concept come to life.
The winning entry will be unveiled as part of a series of events during Autism Awareness Month in April.
Entries will be judged by officers from the City Government, GCC Graphics, Autism Network Scotland and the Autism Resource Centre, representatives from the business community, representatives from the autistic community and GCC City Centre team.
