GUSH Theatre are a Birmingham-based theatre company who make original work and host regular Theatre Mix events to platform local artists. We are looking to commission two logos: a company logo and one for Theatre Mix, including different formats for social media use etc.
Who are we? GUSH Theatre are an emerging theatre company based in Birmingham. Our debut show GUSH! is an interactive, cabaret-inspired, feminist show devised by our small artistic team. As a company, we are about championing underrepresented voices and creating work that is fun and inviting.
What is Theatre Mix? It’s a cross-artform performance night featuring the work (and work-in-progress) of local creatives.
For an idea of the sort of work we do, take a look at our social media pages:

We are primarily interested in working with people based in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
If you would like to express your interest, please send samples of your work and any relevant links to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Thursday 3rd December 2020.
We will respond to everyone by end of play on Friday 4th December, and will meet shortlisted people on Zoom on Tuesday 8th December.
We don’t expect anyone to mock up any designs beforehand; these meetings will be to chat through what we’re looking for in more detail and get a flavour of applicants’ work and style.
If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to touch via the above email address – we’re friendly!
