Independent Filmmaker Project Chicago (IFP Chicago) unveils new logo designed by C2 Creative.  IFP Chicago's mission is to educate, connect and promote film and filmmakers living and working in the Midwest. "The last time IFP Chicago unveiled a new logo it was 1998. Since then, the world of filmmaking has changed. Our community has changed. And so has the organization. We felt it was time for a new logo - one that reflects who we are now and where we are going," stated IFP Chicago Board President Nicole Bernardi-Reis.
IFP Chicago partnered with the marketing team at C2 Creative to re-brand the organization.
"IFP Chicago is about community. It's about creativity. The organization needed a brand identity that truly reflected the organization. For the new logo, we’ve taken inspiration from Chicago, a place where creative vision and hard work built a metropolis out of ashes.  It’s a place with a strong identity that isn’t afraid to redefine itself – just like its filmmakers," explained C2 Creative Partner Patrick Smith.
Along with a new logo, IFP Chicago will also unveil new programming in the next twelve months; they will launch a series events and programs aimed at bringing the incredibly diverse film community together as well as creating stronger relationships with the business and tech communities.
