MPTA Seeks Graphic Designer for 2024 Faces of Transit campaign

The Missouri Public Transit Association (MPTA) is seeking a graphic design consultant to assist MPTA with a campaign for 2024 Faces of Transit education program to build ridership on the transit system.  The goal will be to tell the story of transit through the people impacted by service in Missouri.

Work products will include creation of tagline, one cohesive marketing piece, ad template that can be changed depending on geographic area.  MPTA will need all these files in pdf and jpeg formats. Other file types may be needed for printers as well.  MPTA will provide copy and actual images of riders and their stories.

A detailed budget breakdown for each task/item listed above will need to be included with the proposal.  MPTA encourages disadvantaged, small, women-owned, and/or minority business participation.  MPTA will provide copy, images of actual riders and bios.

Proposals due by November 28, 2023 at kcella@mopublictransit.org


Late proposals will not be considered.  Work product designs will need to be completed no later Jan. 10, 2024.  All proposals submitted in response to a MPTA request for proposal (RFP) will initially be evaluated using the following criteria (each weighted equally):

  1. Qualifications of person/firm conducting the work
  2. Proposal Quality
  3. Product samples – samples provided and/or on firm website need to be relevant to work being asked to be completed.

Once the proposals are narrowed down to the top candidates using these criteria, the final selection will be determined with consideration to price and the above criteria. The proposal providing the best value to the project will be selected.

MPTA will award the work to the responsible firm proposal which is most advantageous to the project, with price and other factors considered.  MPTA reserves the right to reject any proposals deemed non-responsive to the RFP. MPTA reserves the right to reject all proposals if the competitive process is not met and may reissue the RFP with or without changes.
