[Call for a graphic designer] Y-FED: Europe is what we make of it

Young European Federalists (JEF Europe) is a supranational, politically pluralist youth NGO with about 13,000 members in 31 countries. The goal of JEF is the creation of a democratic European federation as a guarantee for peace and a more free, just and democratic society. 

Together with partners, JEF Europe coordinates the project “Y-FED: Europe is what we make of it” aiming to bring the EU closer to its young citizens by developing a proposal for an improved institutional framework of the Union in line with the European Youth Goals. The initiative, supported by an Erasmus+ “European Youth Together” grant, is implemented between January 2019 and July 2021 through a series of capacity-building training courses, public policy hackathons, a large-scale simulation of a reformed EU and advocacy actions. 

JEF Europe is looking for a Graphic Designer to develop a new visual identity of the project based on the existing logo from the previous edition of the project.
