New logo design for new website

Designer
Posted: 3 days ago
Vegan Hacktivists is designing a new website for me (I spoke to James Morgan last month and I am in the queue with roll-out hopefully in late April/early May). I would love a new logo to reflect the new website. I have various websites with various logos but I would like a new one to reflect the new context to be housed on my new shiny new Vegan Hacktivist-created website. I have some ideas which I can talk through.

Vegan Challenge New Brand Identity + Web update

Designer
Posted: 6 days ago
Hi! Sinergia Animal is an international animal protection NGO working in the Global South. We're currently looking for someone to help us rebrand our vegan challenge in Latin America. Although the challenge is working amazingly, with +20k participants yearly, the design of both our identity and website hasn't been updated since its beginning in 2019. We'd love to work together with a passionate volunteer who is interested in this type of project. You can check out our website (desafio21diasveg.com) and Instagram (@desafio21diasveg). - Spanish is not required but a major plus!

Seeking data scraper for recipe project

Data Scientist
Posted: 1 week, 3 days ago
We're going to collaborate on a mini campaign with Sentient Media, encouraging newspaper-affiliated recipe sites (e.g., NYT Cooking) to become more deliberately plant-forward. You may recall that Epicurious eliminated beef-based recipes a few years ago for climate reasons; this will be done in much the same spirit. First, we'll need to assess the current state of things and determine the ratio of plant-based:animal-based ingredients/recipes. We need to find a contractor to scrape data for us. Budget, due date, & time commitment are not set in stone. We're in the early stages of planning and are just putting our feelers out. This probably won't get off the ground until early Feb, so if your January is booked, don't be discouraged! If you think you might be interested, let's chat.

Logo for Plant Product Award Needed (Paid Position Possible)

Designer
Posted: 2 weeks, 1 day ago
We are looking for a hero for the animals to transform the food industry towards more plant-based foods in Latvia with your logo design skills! Our organization "Dzīvnieku brīvība" ("Animal Liberation") will run a Plant Product of the Year survey in February to reward Latvian businesses that introduce new tasty alternatives to animal-based products. This survey motivates the industry to take the plant-based trend seriously and offer more and tastier products that in turn help more people adopt a plant-based diet. However, for the survey to have an impact, the award needs to be attractive... We lack design capacity and would be very grateful for help with creating the logo of the Plant Product of the Year award that will be used in various publications and offered to the winning companies to use on their websites, product packaging and more. Some examples of the style we are looking for: - V-Label International Awards https://awards.v-label.com/live/en/page/home - similar survey in Slovakia https://jemprezem.sk/rastlinny-produkt-roka-2021-vysledky/ - in Poland https://storage.googleapis.com/roslinniejemy-wp-media/sites/1/2022/02/Image-from-iOS-1536x1058.jpg - in Czech Republic https://rostlinne.cz/pro-media/#graficke-podklady - Rainforest Alliance logo https://www.google.com/search?q=rainforest+alliance&sxsrf=AJOqlzUp0nS0MPjuvCAeQjoWWCFWQafcKA:1674485634502&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiV6rOL-d38AhV6QvEDHfGsDZkQ_AUoAXoECAEQAw&biw=1920&bih=947&dpr=1#imgrc=X24pSlguKkEFSM We can discuss details (format, necessary text etc.) via email. :) Please contact me at alise.miluna[at]dzivniekubriviba.lv with your portfolio. For a highly experienced, fast-working professional with a suitable style, a paid position can be discussed, but as a small NGO we are ever so grateful for volunteer contributions.

Spanish speaking mentor Challenge 22

Other
Posted: 2 weeks, 1 day ago
If you are a Spanish speaker, you’ve been vegan for over six months, have patience and empathy for new vegans and the motivation to help make the vegan population grow, you’re exactly what we’re looking for! 🙂 Our Challenges take place within Facebook groups, and we ask our Challenge mentors to be present in the group on a daily basis. Our goal is around 10 comments or an hour a day (can be dispersed throughout the day). After your application is received you will be asked to send a Facebook message to one of our coordinators who will start you in our training program, the Challenge 22 Mentor School. Once you’ve been placed in our training program, you will learn about Challenge 22 and receive all the guidance needed in order to help our Challenge participants 😀 The training must be completed in order to join our mentors team. It’s very fulfilling to help people that are already open to veganism in their first steps. Research shows that one of the leading factors that help vegans stay vegan is having a supportive vegan environment, and that is what we’re all about! Volunteering in the Challenge will teach you a lot! You will be working alongside some of the kindest, smartest and most supportive vegans in the world!

Support in developing new social media assets

Designer
Posted: 1 month, 3 weeks, 2 days ago
Hello! We are a small non-profit organization based in Portugal, that was established in 2006, and is currently one of the few NGOs actively working towards the goal of making a plant-based diet more widespread among the Portuguese population, while also collaborating with other international organizations to facilitate that shift on a EU-level. At the moment we are planning to adopt more effective and captivating social media templates to use in our social media communication, and are hopeful that VeganHacktivists will be able to assist us in creating new assets. Thank you for your support! Nuno Alvim AVP
