Organization: Foxquilt Insurance Services Inc.

Based in Canada, Foxquilt is an Insurance technology company focused on empowering small businesses to save on Business Insurance. This Spring, they’ll be launching their services in Ohio - Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Akron - to continue innovating insurance so it’s easier, simpler and faster for more small business owners in North America. They’re looking for a local artist in each of the following cities: Akron, Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati to paint a mural of a quilt to showcase their amazing small business community! The mural should depict a quilt with the logos of local businesses. Each business will be featured in its own patch; together, all the patches help create the quilt! The businesses will be selected based on submissions where owners share why they love being a part of their city’s community.
If you have any favourite local businesses that you think would be interested in participating, feel free to share the submissions page with them!

They need a local artist, like you, who is passionate about your city to help bring their vision to life!

Requirements for the Mural Design:
The primary quilt should communicate the Foxquilt brand look & feel (brand colours: white, different tones of blue & teal) with the incorporation of the Foxquilt website URL and logo.
● Incorporation of the activation QR code (they will provide) which links to our program landing page that showcases the businesses’ stories of why they love their city.
● Incorporation of the chosen businesses (around 50 logos estimated.) They will look to provide the logos in your chosen design file prior to design.
● A 5-7 word phrase/tagline (they will provide) that needs to be incorporated. This phrase will act as a rallying call behind the program, highlighting the strength of the Foxquilt business community.

Where will the Mural be:
Since you’re the artist bringing this idea to life and would know your city better than any of them, they want to empower you and give you the freedom to choose a place that you feel would
best tell the story of our mural! They will absolutely help with approaching property owners and gathering the right permits. Our only recommendation is for the wall to be ~800 square feet within a high foot traffic area, ideally where small businesses are centralized.

Benefits for you:
●$5,000 to compensate you and the cost of materials
● The opportunity to help support your local small business community with a unique public art installation, while also being a part of a nationwide mural campaign
● The chance to work with a leading, innovative insurance technology company that’s making waves and changing the way business owners get insurance for the better
● Have your work featured all over our social media, in press releases and a targeted marketing campaign!
