Request for Proposals for Research & Brand Strategy 2021 (PIN # 004202100001)

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is intended to result in a two-month contract with a vendor to conduct research with internal and external stakeholders and develop the brand architecture and strategy to guide a redesign of the New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB)’s graphic identity and web properties. The vendor will assess the strengths and weaknesses of the agency’s current brands; their place in the competitive landscape; and the needs of various stakeholders, including both external audiences (including voters, candidates, elected officials, and other city agencies) and CFB staff.

The research findings, brand and positioning strategy, and creative brief produced as a result of this work will be used to guide the creation of a new graphic identity and enhanced website and/or digital products (to be contracted separately) for the CFB and NYC Votes, its public-facing voter education and engagement brand, which reaches 5 million New Yorkers each year through its Voter Guide, press coverage, events, grassroots outreach, and advertising campaigns. The identity will launch in 2021, helping to encourage participation in the largest municipal election in New York City in at least two decades, with as many as 500 candidates expected to run for local and citywide offices.

Subject to the availability of funds, the responses to this RFP, and completion of the City of New York’s procurement process, the CFB will select one or more vendor(s) to provide the services.

Request for Proposals for Graphic Identity and Brand Campaign, 2021 (PIN # 004202100002)

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is intended to result in a three-month contract with a vendor to lead a redesign of the New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB)’s brands and graphic identities, delivering a robust identity system that will enable it to more effectively communicate with its constituents and build trust in its programs and initiatives. This project is an opportunity to redesign the official identity for New York City’s voter education and outreach campaigns that reach more than 5 million voters each year, as well as its internationally respected matching funds program, which enables candidates to run small-dollar campaigns.

The identity will be introduced to the public through an education and engagement campaign for the 2021 elections, the largest citywide election in at least two decades and the first primary election in which ranked choice voting will be used in New York City. In addition to creating overall brand guidelines and templates, the selected vendor will work with the agency to create the launch campaign, generating creative concepts, key art, and assets (including photography or illustration, key advertisements and PSAs, and design elements for the citywide Voter Guide and voting.nyc website), which will serve to both introduce the brand to the public and motivate participation in the 2021 primary and general elections.

Subject to the availability of funds, the responses to this RFP, and completion of the City of New York’s procurement process, the CFB will select one or more vendor(s) to provide the services.
