Logo Design Competition

Stark Development Corporation (SDC) is seeking talented logo designers to redevelop a new logo for SDC. Logo design competition submission deadline is October 1st, 2017.  Winning graphic designer will receive a cash award of $500 and if the SDC selection committee chooses to utilize the new logo as our new brand and identity, the winner will receive an additional $500!

Stark Development recently conducted a strategic planning session where we adopted a new mission and vision. As a result, we re-evaluated our current logo and it was determined a new look was in order.

Our new mission is: “To promote economic development, innovation and entrepreneurship making Southwest North Dakota a great place to live, work, and grow.” 

Our new vision is: “To lead economic development while enhancing quality of life.”
