New Logo/Branding

A long-awaited new design has been created by Jerry Points which he presented to the board at our first meeting on May 15th. It was well received and unanimously approved and will be unveiled later this summer. The new logo transforms the image of IAC as more professional and current, while maintaining the organization’s rich history. The word ‘club’ has been eliminated, but we will remain the Indiana Artists Club legally. From this point forward we will be known as ‘Indiana Artists’. The board feels that this change is necessary as part of our rebranding to attract talented younger artists and to build interest and awareness in the art community.

New Website

Our marketing firm Gracie Communications has recommended that our budget for promotion would be best served by completely re-designing our current website. We have met with the new web designers who have tremendous expertise in building a site that will be easy to navigate, will provide a “members only” link while also encouraging traffic of patrons and art buyers. We will be adding a list of our members with links to your website, a blog, calendar, etc. More information coming soon!
