Request for Proposal: Brand Development

September 20, 2019

Project Summary: Indigenous Tourism Corridor

Whitecap Dakota First Nation, Wanuskewin Heritage Park, and the Beardy’s & Okemasis’ Cree Nation have formed a partnership to develop packaged Indigenous tourism experiences that will highlight the unique cultures represented by their respective communities. These packaged experiences will be sold in markets across the globe as well as domestically.

We are seeking a qualified firm or individual to create a strong brand to represent this partnership and the packaged tourism experiences they are creating. The project must include an engagement strategy and a brand manual as a finished product.

Considerations:

Each partner represents distinct Indigenous cultures, the brand must showcase those unique differences as well as the connections between them. Engagement will require in-person consultations in the partner communities and entities.

The end product will be marketed to cultures around the globe. The brand must be clear, and communicate through language barriers.
