The Association des amis de Marcel Proust et des amis de Combray has decided to adopt a new logo to replace the existing one.

Current logo of the association

This new logo will be used in various contexts: in the association's communications (paper mail, electronic newsletters, etc.), website, online shop) but also on various media such as books, brochures, posters and even multimedia content (photos, videos, CDs, DVDs).

First stage: Selection of finalists

Each participant in the competition is invited to submit a portfolio of his or her past designs, whether published or unpublished, whether in final or draft form, enabling the competition jury to assess the participant's logo design skills.

Second stage: Selection of the laureate logo

On the basis of the portfolios, the competition jury will select up to four finalists who will each have to submit one or more logo proposals.

Themes and orientations

Proposals for the logo should reflect both the respect for Marcel Proust's work and the dynamism of the Société's activities.

The shape of the logo (rectangular, square, round, etc.) is left to the free choice of the participants.
