Creative Townsville-born entrepreneur Scott Rogers has won the state-wide competition to create the logo for the Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur (OQCE) with a fresh and bold design set to shape the identity of the office in the long term.
Scott has won a prize package worth approximately $5000, including:
- official acknowledgement as the OQCE logo creator;
- a place on the world-first Venturer program, a Queensland-based resilience-building adventure with globetrotting adventurer and ‘best job in the world’ winner Ben Southall;
- two tickets to Creative3 —QUT Creative Enterprise Australia’s internationally renowned innovation conference.
A mentor to entrepreneurs and an investor in Australian and US tech startups, Scott is a regular at Queensland startup community events such as Innovation NQ.
Scott Roger’s winning logo design
“I’m closely involved with Queensland’s startup ecosystem. When I saw the competition I thought of it as a bit of an artistic challenge and decided to give it a go. I designed a bold, simple logo and kept the letter ‘e’ clearly visible in the centre of the design because I personally think entrepreneurial activity should be at the centre of the Queensland economy.”
Chief entrepreneur Mark Sowerby said the competition was part of a strategy to ensure the state’s startup community was involved and represented in every element of the office’s work inspiring Queenslanders to change their life and become an entrepreneur.
Mr Sowerby said Scott’s design perfectly captured the energy, tenacity, diversity and creativity of Queensland’s entrepreneurs.
The logo will be used across all communication channels for the Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur.
