The PULSE A Cappella group is conducting auditions, but not for the reason you might think.
The A Cappella group is hosting a contest for a new logo to represent the singing group, and a $75 reward is up for grabs for the winning design.
Submissions will be accepted through Sunday night, and the winner will be announced on the group’s Facebook page on Monday.
Last fall, a member of PULSE designed t-shirts for the group. When the idea of new shirts came up this year, the group decided that a logo to represent PULSE was needed.
Wes Rasbury, treasurer of PULSE, said he hopes that the logo gives the group’s presence on campus some consistency and recognition.
“I’m a senior, and a lot of us are seniors, so I won’t really have much say after this year, but if we can get a logo, that kind of sticks.” said Rasbury senior youth and family ministry major from St. Louis, Mo.
“We’re really new, and people don’t know us, so if we could have something that will get people to know us more,” Rasbury said. “That’s what we’re all about right now, is getting our name out there, so making a logo or a brand might help with that.”
Nick Tatum, president of PULSE, said the group is trying to create an identity that is marketable and memorable.
“As president and as officers, we are trying to create an identity that’s recognizable, so I think this is one step to establishing that,” Tatum said.
Tatum, senior family studies major from Plano, said the group is looking for a logo that is “simple, but at the same time something really memorable. In a sense, not something that is outrageous or cheesy, but something that could be utilized in a lot of different mediums, like on a shirt, or an image on a Facebook group.”
There is no limit to the number of entries per applicant and all submissions should be emailed to Rasbury at firstname.lastname@example.org.
