Slow Food of Springfield would like to offer artisan-made mugs and bowls that incorporate a stylized or reimagined version of our Slow Food snail logo and is seeking proposals with samples from interested artists.

Initially the merchandise will be sold from the Slow Food website, at our events, and at various retail locations around Springfield with the Slow Food certification, like Custom Cup.  Everything must be food and dishwasher safe. Depending on the proposals we receive, we may choose more than one style from more than one artist. Each artist may submit up to three designs for each product.

The products should be consistent and reproducible.

Please submit questions to [email protected] or submit an Artist Interest Form.

We’re looking for artistic renderings for screen print or embroidery patterns for T-shirts and Market totes. Designs should creatively represent all or one element of our mission: good, clean fair food or should be a re-imagining our snail with a pithy or fun play on words.  To give you a little inspiration, Slow Food already has Snailblazer and Slow the Fork Down in use. We’re looking for original, zippy designs and wordplay that evoke positivity around the joy of slow food.

“The richness I achieve comes from nature, the source of my inspiration.” – Claude Monet

Slow Food Springfield Local Artists

SFS Local Artists have an opportunity to share the source of their inspiration – nature – in service of good, clean, fair food for all in central Illinois. SFS supports central Illinois farmers, restaurants, educational institutions, nonprofits and local artisans who support the Slow Food mission:

Seeking to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system, Slow Food USA reconnects Americans with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food. We inspire individuals and communities to change the world through food that is good, clean and fair for all:

GOOD

  • Believe in delicious nutrition as a right for everyday life
  • Cultivate joyful connections to community and place
  • Advocate for diversity in ecosystems and societies

CLEAN

  • Protect natural resources for future generations
  • Help people and the environment depend on each other
  • Promote food that is local, seasonal, and sustainably grown

FAIR

  • Build local cooperation and global collaboration while respecting all laws
  • Require no prerequisite or credential for participation
  • Fight for dignity of labor from field to fork

Use your creative talents to help us connect the pleasures of the table with our commitment to the communities, cultures, knowledge, and environment that make this pleasure possible.
